Barrett Jackson, the American auction company based out of Scottsdale, Arizona, has a piece of Top Gear UK history in its docket. They’re auctioning a 2014 Ford F-150 Raptor that’s been tuned by Hennessey, called the Velociraptor 600! The highly modified truck is equipped with a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 that delivers 623 horsepower. It was originally painted in silver factory paint but has been wrapped in yellow for, god knows what reason…
If this truck looks familiar to you it’s because it was featured on Top Gear, Series 22 Episode 6, where Jeremy Clarkson and James May races through Wolf Mountain to rescue a very helpless and angry Hamster. Jeremy Clarkson aggressively puts this very truck through its limits while James May slowly trudges through the snowy winter wonderland in a Chevrolet Silverado Z71.
Check out the episode below and then buy the truck on Barrett-Jackson this Friday, April 8th!
Watching the trio gets us totally excited for the new Amazon show. In case you haven’t seen it, they’ve been filmed driving a highly modified merc, perhaps trying to recreate these scenes.
