I've always liked Hennessy vehicles, but the 1/4 time in particular strikes me as pretty crappy for the 2011 Hennessy Raptor. I'm no expert, but I think as soon as I get cams and re-tuned, my T will be faster than this truck. Unless, of course, the 1/4 time listed isn't really accurate.

From Hennessy's website, vehicles for sale:

2011 Supercharged VelociRaptor 600 F-150 Raptor

Power:
• 605 bhp @ 5,600 rpm

Performance:
• 0-60 mph: 5.2 seconds
1/4 mile: 13.6 @ 103 mph
• Top Speed: 110 mph (tire rating limited)

VelociRaptor 600 Upgrade:
• Centrifugal Supercharger System
• Air-to-Air Intercooler
• High Flow K&N Air Filter
• Fuel Injector Upgrade
• Stainless Steel Long Tube Headers
• High Flow Catalytic Converters
• Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust
• All Necessary Gaskets & Fluids
• HPE Engine Management Calibration
• Hennessey Embroidered Front Headrests
• Serial Numbered Dash & Engine Plaques
• Hennessey & VelociRaptor 600 Exterior Badging

Additional Upgrades:
• Polished Supercharger & Bracket
• Electronic Muffler Bypass (wired to axillary switch)
• A/C Vent-Mounted Boost Gauge



13.6? WTF?

It is pretty cool they make exhaust cutout an option.

I would say it's an estimate, one put there to give people false hope of beating one. It is a Centrifugal setup though, so it will be making that power alot higher in the RPM range than say a roots blower equipped truck or un-cammed Titan. Say the drivetrain is horribly inefficent on it, RWD vehicles tend to lose 18-25% of their bhp, and if it was 25% then the truck is actually putting down about 450whp. With a big exhaust and big headers it could also be missing the low end torque that wins 1/4 and 1/8th mile races, supposing you can put that torque to good use. Gearing is also counted in that, and these trucks are designed more for an open desert than for pulling holeshots. There are alot of other variables I am not including, like the tires and wheels, suspension etc. I'd still venture to guess that isn't an actual time they've run but more of an estimate.....probably won't ever see one in Ohio so I doubt I'll have to worry ;)

600hp it'd have to be a high 12 truck IMO. We will see though.

ET doesn't tell the whole story.

What do the faster Titan's trap? 95-96mph? (I don't know, guessing here).

Trap speed is the real power-to-weight indicator.

For a claimed 600hp, it seems slow...but I wouldn't race one from a roll!

Any guestimates on $$$?

The saying I've heard for Hennessey vehicles is "If you have to ask, you don't shop at Sam's Club"

Here is what the Top Gear Raptor looks like now, the new owner has some SERIOUS $ wrapped up in this truck
No ****...that's about $4000 in LED light bars on that rack alone!

Wow.

If it has those LED light bars are all around the roof rack, it's more like $9000.

All Rigid Industries LED bars

I added them up, came out to ruffy $6500
I stand corrected. I was looking only at the front and assumed he was running 7 40" bars.
