Extreme pickup Ford F-150 Raptor returned the V8 engineOctober 31, 2018
Atelier Hennessey pumped the engine of Ford F-150 Raptor to 769 hp
Texas Atelier Hennessey Performance presented the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup with an eight-cylinder engine, which after the generation change is offered only with the “six”. In total, the company plans to build only 100 such cars.
The new generation of “Raptor” debuted in 2015. Then, the 3.5 V6 EcoBoost family, which produced 457 forces, replaced the 6.2-liter eight-cylinder unit with a power of 416 horsepower. Now, in the studio, Hennessey decided to return the G-8 to those who are not ready to put up with the absence of such a motor on an all-road pick-up truck. How this car sounds can be heard in the Hennessey video.
The model tuners installed a five-liter “eight” from the “Mustang”, adding to its 2.9-liter supercharger drive. She produces 769 horsepower, while still working with a serial ten-speed automatic transmission.
From zero to 96 kilometers per hour, the “charged” pickup accelerates in 4.1 seconds. The distance to the quarter mile (402 meters), he travels in 12.2 seconds.
Such a car will cost 147,950 dollars. This is about three times the road ordinary serial Ford F-150 Raptor.
