Hennessey builds a Velociraptor fighter with the all-new Goliath 6x6
Ever felt there’s something missing from your brand new pickup truck? When you’ve already rolled off the showroom floor with the latest trail-ready machine with all the fancy bits and bobs yet still, something’s amiss. Perhaps it’s missing something fundamentally different, a part that changes the game altogether for your very own truck.
Should you end up getting the latest Chevy Silverado Z71 Trail Boss, Hennessy Performance just might have what you’re looking for.
Adding another pair of tires and corresponding running gear along with a longer pickup bed, Hennessy’s version of the Silverado turns into a true 6x6 machine. Aptly dubbed the Goliath, the Silverado on roids will of course get more than a beefy exterior treatment.
The outfit from Texas will also modify the Silverado’s 6.2-liter V8 powerplant with their HPE700 package – a treatment that includes a 2.9-liter supercharger pushing 7 psi of boost, according to Hennessy. As is expected from the numbered engine package, 705 PS and 915 Nm of torque is sent to all six wheels.
The Goliath’s 6x6 treatment comes with improved axles, brakes, an 8-inch lift kit, as well as beefier 37-inch wheels and tires setup. And should you be worried with just how reliable this frankenstein really is, Hennessy is offering a 3-year/36,000mi (58,000km) warranty to go with their creation.
“We are very excited to offer our new Goliath 6X6 alongside our Velociraptor 6X6 truck. These are very exclusive and unique vehicles that make a huge statement anywhere our clients go – whether its Rodeo drive or the sand dunes of the Sahara Desert," said company founder & CEO, John Hennessey.
The Hennessy Goliath 6x6 retails for $375,000 (about Php 20.3 million) and will only have 24 units made in total.
