Top Gear’s VelociRaptor to be Auctioned at Barrett-Jackson
Remember the Top Gear episode in which Jeremy Clarkson and James May set out to rescue Hammond trapped on an snow-capped mountain? Well, the strikingly yellow truck from the film can now be yours.
Top Gear’s VelociRaptor built by Hennessey is heading to Barrett-Jackson’s auction to be held in Palm Beach, FL. The truck is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that puts out 623 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission which allows the behemoth to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 5.3 sec.
We got a rare chance to get up close with the Hennessey VelociRaptor from Top Gear. You can checkout the complete photo set from the shoot by clicking on the following link.
