Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays from the Team at Hennessey Performance
The VelociRaptor 6×6 – A 23 foot long off-road behemoth that naturally draws attention anywhere and everywhere it ventures. One might ask how to make the truck even more unique than just two tandem rear axles, well one of Hennessey’s most recent clients was able to do just that. Introducing the first and only fiery orange pearl VelociRaptor 6×6. This 600 horsepower, six wheeled brute of a truck commands attention whenever in the public eye. The completion of the build allowed for the team that was behind the build to get together and capture a Christmas card photo that will be hard to beat in future years. The heavy pearl orange VelociRaptor is the tenth VelociRaptor 6×6 to come out of production and head to a client since the conversion’s original public debut in November of 2017. The team at Hennessey Performance has several more trucks in the queue for the exclusive transformation and is projecting to build 3-4 each quarter through 2019.
Coffee and Cars Houston
Every first Saturday of the month, Coffee and Cars – Houston gathers in the parking lot at Memorial City Mall in Houston, TX. Over the last several years, the first Saturday in December has served as Coffee and Cars – Houston’s annual holiday season toy drive. The Hennessey Performance team has been long-time partners and attendees of the event and refused to miss the opportunity to show off their latest Jurassic-sized truck to the public and contribute to a great cause in their hometown. On Saturday, December 2, Hennessey Performance arrived to Coffee and Cars Houston with the 8-foot long bed of their latest VelociRaptor 6×6 overflowing with toys for the 2018 Toys for Tots toy drive. But wait – it gets even better. Behind the wheel and also riding in the passenger seat of the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 loaded with toys, was none other than jolly-old Saint Nick (x2). The two Chris Kringles’ that drove the truck into the event are the master fabricators and designers of the very successful VelociRaptor 6×6. The brothers have been a large part of Hennessey for several years and are largely responsible for the production of every 6×6 conversion to come through the shop.
2019 – A look Ahead!
2018 was another record year for the Hennessey Performance team and as it comes to an end with 2019 awaiting presumptuously, the team will spend the coming weeks gearing up to hit the new year with the gas pedal mashed to the floor. 2019 model year vehicles are already beginning to roll into dealers and the wave of increased “new model” production in Hennessey’s 36,000 sq ft facility has the company booked solid for weeks. 2019 is already slated to be a year for the books for HPE. With the Venom F5 heading into production and a top speed run sitting high atop the list of “To-Do’s”, John Hennessey and his team are geared up and ready to deliver a year of content that will leave the auto industry’s jaw on the floor.
