The AddArmor atelier, known for its quirky car booking projects, has refined the mighty Hennessey VelociRaptor pickup. As Motor1 writes, the matter was not limited to protection: the truck uses an unusual technology that allows it to go on the offensive.
- To protect the pickup from shelling, AddArmor used its proprietary polymer composite, which is 15 times stronger than steel and 40% stronger than Kevlar. What class the VelociRaptor is armored in is not specified - the possibility of countering improvised explosive devices and bursts from AK-47 is mentioned.
- Got a pickup and active defenses. For example, it is equipped with sonic attack equipment, and doorknobs are equipped with electroshock devices. In addition, the pickup is equipped with an explosive detection scanner, strobe lights and sirens, as well as a public address system. The VelociRaptor will handle road problems with heavy-duty bumpers and puncture-resistant tires.
- The donor for the project was the Hennessey atelier truck, which the tuners are building on the basis of the serial Ford F-150 Raptor. The studio has several programs for revision: according to the publication, the presented project is based on a version with a 600-horsepower V6 with a volume of 3.5 liters.
- Previously, the AddArmor studio used the same composite material to armour the Ferrari 458 Speciale supercar: despite the B4 class protection, the coupe's dynamics did not suffer.
