Hennessey Performance Engineering this year is celebrating the 25th anniversary of when it first opened up shop in Houston, Texas. We’ve already seen the celebratory 804-horsepower, 25th Anniversary Edition HPE 800 Ford Mustang; now, it’s time to take a look at its pickup truck cousin.
Details of Hennessey’s new, 25th Anniversary Edition VelociRaptor 700 Ford F-150 just dropped, revealing that the truck will make 704 horsepower from its original 5.0-liter Coyote V8, albeit aided by a 2.9-liter supercharger. An air-to-water intercooler, high-flow induction system, and upgraded fuel injectors will support the Coyote’s higher output, while a stainless steel cat-back exhaust kit ought to help improve the truck’s sound, if not its performance. A custom engine management calibration and professional installation come standard, as always.
But the 25th Anniversary Hennessey VelociRaptor Ford F-150 has plenty going on outside of the bonnet, too. Custom, 20-inch wheels will sit at all four corners, with available street and off-road tire upgrades. An aggressive “Pre-Runner” bumper upgrade with an integrated LED bar will sit up front, opposite an off-road rear bumper upgrade out back, while a Fox off-road suspension kit will ensure that everything’s well-sprung.
Only 25 examples of the Hennessey 25th Anniversary Edition VelociRaptor 700 Ford F-150 will be built, and if the 25th Anniversary Mustang’s $99,500 price tag is any indication, it will likely cost a pretty penny. But if it helps, the truck comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty.
