Hennessey, the American hypercar manufacturer and performance tuner, have started taking booking for its 600 hp VelociRaptor that is based on the 2015 Ford Raptor. Only 500 units will be manufactured for 2015 F-150 Raptor and it can be ordered from any of the Ford dealer based in America. This Dino was introduced in December 2014 and was in developing phase up until now. Priced at $73,500 (approx. Rs 45.77 lacs), it is one deal to grab. However, our excise duties will only push its price to double, close to the Porsche Cayenne or Audi Q7s.
