Being the host of the most popular podcast in the world, plus enjoying a successful career as a comedian comes with quite a few perks. Joe Rogan sure knows how to treat himself, not only eating and exercising properly but also driving cool rides most of us can only dream of owning. One of those is a Hennessey Velociraptor 600, which hails from the Lone Star State just like Rogan.
Just like Rogan, this truck is beefed up, a modified Ford F-150 Raptor done of course by Hennessey Performance. They have a reputation of pushing the envelope and taking even high-performance factory vehicles, elevating them to the next level for those who want more.
Through the addition of upgraded twin turbos and other mods, the EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 engine products a monstrous 600-bhp and 622 lb.-ft. of torque for plenty of get up and go so the already quick pickup scoots even faster.
If you think this truck rides a little higher than a regular Ford Raptor, you’re right. Hennessey put 35-inch tires on it for better capabilities off the road. To accommodate that extra rubber, they also lifted the truck three inches. While Rogan isn’t short he also isn’t tall, so it’s a good thing he’s in shape and can hoist himself up and into the cabin no problem.
If you’re wondering what the point of this truck is, don’t worry about it. Rogan obviously loves the thing and his fans love that he loves it – that’s all that matters.
Just like other Hennessey builds, the Velociraptor comes with a variety of cosmetic modifications to set it apart from the regular factor Raptors of the same age. That includes body graphics which proudly announce this is a Velociraptor 600, aftermarket wheels, and more aggressive steel bumpers with a bull bar on the front.
