Especially astute gearheads might recognize this familiar yellow VelociRaptor from its worldwide debut on BBC’s Top Gear. That’s right, this is the actual truck that carried automotive antihero Jeremy Clarkson across Canada. Looking for an exclusive rig that’s ready to conquer almost anything, step right up and check out the brawny side of Ford’s Special Vehicle Team! There were actually two of these pickups built for Series 22, Episode 6 of Top Gear: one for the crew, and this beast, which Jeremy Clarkson piloted through the frozen wastes of Canada. In reality, the truck is Oxford White, with the bright yellow you see reflected courtesy of a professional wrap. Its thick body, packed onto Ford’s SuperCrew chassis, utilizes buff sheetmetal modifications to enhance an already beefy profile. And, in typical Hennessey VelociRaptor style, there’s an extensive list of aesthetic modifications. Under the louvered hood you’ll find a 6.2 liter Boss V8 that, from the factory, makes a stout 411 horsepower. But, since the truck took a detour through Houston-based Hennessey Performance Engineering, it also features a 2.9 liter supercharger that cranks power up to 623 dyno-proven horses! Behind that mill, an unbreakable 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission sends power to an open front differential and an electronic locking rear differential, complete with tall, 4.10 gears. Holding that stellar drivetrain off the ground is a rugged independent front and solid axle rear suspension, augmented by unique SVT control arms, Raptor-exclusive leaf springs and Fox Racing internal triple bypass shocks. And 17-inch Method MR301 wheels and 315/70 BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/As prove that while this truck is exceptionally nice, it was made to get dirty! This 2014 VelociRaptor, known by many as the Top Gear Raptor, is what we like to call “the best of everything”. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com to start your adventure!
