Ford has shelved the F-150 Raptor, so Hennessey opted for the 2015 Ford F-150 Supercrew 5.0L V8 (with the FX4 off-road package) and boosted it with an 8PSI supercharger, a high flow air induction system and upgraded fuel injectors.
The Shaman has eight custom-made low pressure tires. It can be driven in 4×4, 8×8 and a steering mode that enables it to move diagonally. An optional pump can inflate or deflate the tires to further improve handling on different terrain.
Originally used as an aircraft tug on German military airports, this 1976 Mercedes-Benz Unimog 406 4×4 was last used as a hunting vehicle. It still has its original body and 85hp six-cylinder engine but has new wheels and tires.
Behind the wheel of this powerful 2500hp Peterbilt semi is stunt driver Mike Ryan, as he does his best Ken Block impression hooning around between freight containers and evading capture. Ignore the acting. Enjoy the driving.
