EFFING AWESOME Hennesey Raptor SUV





Hennessey VelociRaptor APV is the Raptor-based SUV of our dreams — Autoblog

Hennessey has just pulled back the sheets on what can only be described as a raging pile of awesome the VelociRaptor APV. It can seat up to eight, packs a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 good for a galloping 575 horsepower and if its anything like its pickup cousin, can leap small villages in a single bound. Apparently it can also withstand small-arms fire. The company hasn't announced how much one of these things will set you back, but we're guessing it's more than a handful of shiny pennies.

Something tells us that this truck is going to be mighty popular with border patrol agents.

Hennessey will also turn out an eight-passenger, non-armored version if you don't find yourself under a hail of gunfire on your typical commute. We're guessing that without all the weight of armor plating and bullet-resistant glass, the non-tactical version is quite a bit more entertaining to fling through the desert. Hit the jump for the full press release

That is a crappy photoshop. If that is the angle of the rear windows then it sucks, it doesn't match up right. Otherwise it is a cool idea. I miss the solid axle full size SUVs.

That's really neat.

I kind of like the idea of an eddie bauer max expedition with the raptors suspension and the mustang cobra's motor.
