Top Gear is a cultural phenomenon as much as it is a television show. Accordingly, vehicles and other props associated with this hugely popular program can command BIG bucks, like the Ford Raptor Jeremy Clarkson drove in season 22.
This Hennessey Performance-modified Ford F-150 is listed on the company’s website with a price tag of $150,000. That must be some provenance!
Under its bulging, vented hood this bright yellow VelociRaptor features a 2.9-liter supercharger. To feed it an appropriate amount of gasoline, engineers updated the fuel injectors to prevent any lean-burn situations. Additionally the truck features an air-to-water intercooler, a reworked air intake and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust system.
All of these modifications bring the output total to 623 hp. That is enough to propel this CrewCab F-150 to 60 miles an hour from a standstill in a scorching 5.2 seconds. The quarter mile can be yours in just 13.6 seconds.
Dressing things up, the truck features new front and rear bumpers, a 50-inch light bar, 10,000-pound winch and an in-bed tire carrier, among countless other modifications.
