Hennessy Performance has been known for a while now of turning fast cars in to speed demons. They've worked on everything from a 2014 Corvette Stingray, to the SRT Viper. Their newest project is a bit of a departure as they go for brute strength. Their Hennessey Velociraptor SUV ($156K - $175K) started off as a F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew pickup. Once Hennessy got their hands on it they replaced the pickup bed with a covered rear section, which was padded, carpeted and made to appear absolutely stock. You then have your choice of seating and cargo options. You can get the Velociraptor with a stock engine or add a supercharger, intercooler, and upgraded fuel injectors for a whopping 600 horses and a 0-60 time of 5.9 seconds. The result is a beast of a SUV.
