For a base price of $295,000, the VelociRaptor 6x6 includes the donor F-150 Raptor, as well as a beefier suspension setup, heavy duty bumpers, a roll bar, 20-inch wheels and an LED light bar. If you stop there, the engine remains stock at 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

That may make the Raptor feel like a Nissan GT-R built for off-roading, but it's still hardly enough against your favorite dictator's 630 horsepower Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet.

Hennessey is well aware of that problem.

That's why the list of options includes Brembo brakes, all the LED lights found in Texas, even larger wheels, and a power package that brings the 3.5 V6 to over 600 horsepower, using bigger turbos and intercoolers, a new exhaust and an ECU tune. What's more, customers can also order their 6x6s with an armored body and an interior as fancy as they desire.

Hey, it's still cheaper than the G 6x6 was with its Maybach seats, and probably just as capable off-road. That's a win-win!
