Most of you know Hennessey only as a tuner with huge horsepower obsession, but they’re actually a major company which make their own supercar, and now provide armored vehicle as well.

That’s why they created the Armored Performance Vehicles (APV) division, which can secure any sort of vehicles.

This is their first creation, 2012 Hennessey VelociRaptor APV based on the new Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew powered by the 6.2 liter V8 engine. Of course it’s tuned for this APV and delivers 575 hp instead of the standard 411.

Other features of the car when it becomes available include seating options for six, seven or eight seats. A full line of electronic upgrades will also be available, including: Satellite TV, high-speed internet, entertainment systems and mobile office systems.

“Adding armor protection to SUV’s such as Chevy Suburbans and Cadillac Escalades can easily increase vehicle weights from 6,000 lbs to over 10,000 lbs”, said company founder and president, John Hennessey. “We are excited to be able to apply our 20 years of high-performance experience to the armor vehicle industry.”
