Ford F-150 Raptor 6x6 Gets Its Freak on With New Shoes, Looks Like an Overlanding Beast

The original six-wheel drive Mercedes G-Wagen has inevitably created yet another niche, with all sorts of companies racing to make theirs. Kahn came out with the Flying Huntsman 6x6, a heavily tuned Land Rover Defender, Rezvani launched the Apocalypse Hellfire 6x6, and Hennessey gave America the VelociRaptor 6x6.

Based on the Ford F-150 Raptor, which is already a badass truck, the Lone Star State tuner’s VelociRaptor 6x6 is supposedly limited to 50 copies and used to sell from almost $350,000. That makes it untouchable to us mere mortals, though we definitely wouldn’t mind one.

Sporting locking rear axles – that’s right, those extra wheels aren’t there for show-and-tell purposes only – upgraded suspension, custom bumpers on both ends, LED lights, and a few other features, it normally rides on 20-inch wheels shod in chunky rubber from Toyo.

But not the example pictured in the gallery above, as that one rocks a set of Vossen Y-spoke alloys, named the HF6-4, which come in several paint finishes, and diameters ranging between 20 and 24 inches.

With its new trekking shoes on, the VelociRaptor 6x6 looks like an off-road warrior, ready to take on pretty much anything Mother Nature has to throw at it. And with over 600 hp available from the massaged twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, it certainly has the grunt to match the wild looks. Brembo brakes are available for the tuned F-150 Raptor, as well as trail lights.

The tuner could give the cockpit a makeover too in return for even more Benjamins, and they have other ways to get more money out of you. But in the end, you will end up with a wild machine for which (almost) no slope is steep enough. Sadly, though, some of them will never get to experience the great outdoors, no matter how menacing they look.
