Hennessey’s 600HP VelociRaptor Super-Truck Gets Upgraded With Dyneema Armor

Feb 2, 2021

If a 600-horsepower high-performance pickup truck sounds a bit like overkill to you, you were never really a part of Hennessey’s target demographic to begin with. However, if you were wondering how the already-fantastic VelociRaptor could be further improved, wonder no longer — the folks at AddArmor have figured out the perfect suite of upgrades to make it even more formidable.

Along with all of the exceptional features that helped set this super truck apart from the competition, the AddArmor VelociRaptor now benefits from the brand’s “Full Protection Package,” which means armor panels from tip to tail. However, this isn’t your ordinary suite of steel plating. Rather, the brand has employed Dyneema — a nearly-indestructible synthetic material (rated as high as 10x stronger than steel) that’s also ultralight — to keep protection high without burdening the truck with unnecessary weight. Of course, that’s only the beginning of the upgrades. Other additions include a counter-attack sound cannon, electrified door handles, run-flat tires, and more — effectively turning this ride into the ultimate “Mobile Safe-Room,” as the brand aptly put it. AddArmor hasn’t released pricing on this particular build, but they have noted that their packages start at $30,000.
