When one thinks of a car armored the normal thing is to imagine an SUV or a luxury saloon for the most VIP passengers who also need protection. However the American company AddArmor has shown us lately that this is not always the case, presenting proposals as atypical as an armored Ferrari 458 Speciale. Now it comes with another high-performance proposal, although not as luxurious as the Ford F-150 Raptor, or rather its version on steroids. Hennessey Velociraptor, which serves to demonstrate the limits of protection in an armored car.
Like Ford, Hennessey wanted to continue that game of putting this version of the F-150 the name of a dinosaur like the velociraptor, however with this new evolution of the species it could almost have happened to put the name of some armored animal like the ankylosaurus. And it is that AddArmor has put all the meat on the grill in this preparation with its innovative armor Dyneema, a polycarbonate compound that the company notes is 15 times stronger than steel and 40% stronger than Kevlar compared to similar weight.
In this way with this armor the Hennessey Velociraptor is able to resist bullets from an AK-47 Y explosive devicesSo far nothing that we have not seen in other similar proposals for armored cars. However the real novelty comes from the hand of a high-tech security technology that includes a sound system as a counterattack, and the most amazing electrified door handles, capable of launching a powerful electric shock if someone tries to enter the interior with malicious intent.
To top it all off the Velociraptor has reinforced and hidden front and rear bumpers, a dual battery system, siren lights, an intercom system, anti-puncture tires capable of reaching about 80 km / h or bomb scan functions.
Security without sacrificing benefits
Along with this complete safety package, of course, there is a mechanical section at the height of the performance of the model, reaching the 600 CV of power to sign, despite its extra weight, an impressive 0 to 100 km / h in 4.2 seconds, thanks to Hennessey improvements in cooling, software and exhaust, to which is added an improved Brembo brake system or a suspension kit which lifts your body even more.
AddArmor offers its security package for a price that starts from the $ 30,000. An amount that of course does not include the donor Hennessey Velociraptor.
