Hennessey Performance recently released a video showing a 2017 VelociRaptor 600 racing against a stock Ford F-150 Raptor.

But the ¼-mile drag race is not much of challenge for the VelociRaptor which wins by eight truck lengths. There’s a good reason for that.

With Hennessey Performance’s new VelociRaptor 600 upgrade, Ford’s EcoBoost 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 engine gets bumped p from 450 hp and 510 lb-ft. of torque to 605 hp and 622 lb-ft. of torque. The increased power and twist yield a 0-60 mph time of just 4.2 seconds while running down the ¼ mile in just 12.9 seconds at 110 mph.
