Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Splurges On $150,000 Custom VelociRaptor V8 From Hennessey Performance


Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has a net worth of $280 million so he can afford to treat himself to the top-of-the-line luxuries. The Rock’s recent decadent purchase was a beautiful pickup truck. But not just a regular pickup truck, The Fast and the Furious actor purchased a magnificent VelociRaptor V8 that costs $150,000.

The Rock bought (or was given) a 2019 F-150 Raptor, which is no surprise since Johnson gets paid $15 million to be a spokesperson for Ford. But the wrestler-turned-actor wanted a little more from his pickup truck. So he went to the car modifying geniuses over at Hennessey Performance.

Hennessey Performance took the F-150 and equipped the truck with beadlock wheels, all-terrain tires, a matte black bull bar, and auxiliary LED lights in the front bumper. The VelociRaptor V8 has an increased ride height, which will suit the 6’5″ Johnson well. The truck is an eye-catching smurf blue.

Hennessey took the stock EcoBoost V6 and upgraded the engine to a Coyote V8 with a supercharger. The upgraded engine boasts 758 horsepower and the rear wheels flaunt a torque of 449 pound-feet. The Velociraptor has a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds and races around the quarter in 12.2 seconds at 115 miles per hour. Hennessey Performance will only make 100 VelociRaptor V8’s for the 2019 model. Pricing starts at $147,950 including the original F-150 Raptor.
