Also an already strong one modified vehicle you can still use a protective plating equip. This is exactly what the specialists at AddArmor from Jackson, Wyoming (USA / second seat in Mexico). They have a 600 hp engine Hennessey Ford F-150 VelociRaptor V8 caught and provided with protective armor all around. And compared to the recently presented Ferrari Speciale 458 and a Audi RS7 (Link at the end of the post) the current project is clear extreme. Because while the basis for a conversion is otherwise standard vehicles VelociRaptor known from the Texan tuner Hennessey performance heavily modified. The result, in combination with the armor, actually has nothing to do with a standard Ford F-150. Only the case partly reminds of it.
Hennessey VelociRaptor from AddArmor
This armored Hennessey VelociRaptor received the in-house from AddArmor Dyneema armor and is in combination with the HP 600 upgrade an impressive package. Again, AddArmor uses the Dyneema material for the armor that a Polycarbonate composite is. AddArmor states it is 15 times stronger than steel and 40 percent stronger than Kevlar, if you build it with the same thickness. The material is capable of diverse Explosive devices and even AK-47 cartridges to withstand. But of course not only the armoring of the body components has been added. AddArmor again installed the most modern security features. For example a so-called "Counter-attack sound system"(Intercom), Door handles with Electric shock function, Double battery system, Siren and Police additional lights, a fully functional Intercom system and there are even various functions for scanning and finding hidden ones Bombs (bomb scanning capabilities system).
new brakes, run-flat tires and more
In addition, AddArmor naturally has robust ones run-flat tires installed, with which up to 80 km/h can be driven, even with one flatfoot. Due to the significant increase in weight, the Bremsanlage through an in-house system Brembo reinforced and a Leveling set for the front suspension is one even Road holding here. The AddArmor security package is complete, by the way interchangeable. The other changes in terms of the martial look are of course made by Hennessey. The VelociRaptor package increases the power from 450 HP (335 KW), for example from 600 HP (447 kW) and the sprint to 96 km / h lasts, in combination with a new one Air Intake System and a exhaust system made of stainless steel as well as one Software Upgrade, then only 4,2 seconds. Armor packages from AddArmor are available for new and used vehicles and start at around 30.000 US dollars. Naturally plus base vehicle and if desired plus the limited VelociRaptor conversion from Hennessey! If we get more information about the changes, there will of course be an update for this report.
