Hennessey VelociRaptor Featured In Latest Issue of Top Gear Magazine

VelociRaptor made the cut

Quote:
The Brits, and especially the staff of Top Gear show, seem to have a love-hate relationship with American fullsize trucks, with Jeremy Clarkson famously calling the 2004 Ford F-150 Lightning “rubbish.” More recently, however, Clarkson drove Hennessey’s supercharged VelociRaptor based on the 2011-2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor and seemed to enjoy it while making an unhurried attempt to rescue co-host Richard Hammond off the top of a snowy mountain in Canada.
Evidently, the Top Gear editors thought highly enough of Hennessey’s hot-rodded pickup to put it on the cover of its May 2015 issue, along with the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen 4x4-2 with portal axles and the Range Rover Sport SVR. Other non-truck vehicles featured include the Porsche Cayman GT4, Ken Block’s “Hoonicorn” Mustang, and the Ferrari FXXK.

That's quite impressive, even with this modified Raptor, I still wouldn't have through it will eventually make its way to Top Gear. Just goes to show how much of an impact its had.

Can't get enough of that supercharger whine mixed with sound of the V8
