Hennessey VelociRaptor – How’d They Do That?

Yesterday the news of Hennessey’s latest creation, the VelociRaptor hit the wire. Now, its everywhere. If you’ve seen it, you already know it is part F-150 Raptor and part Ford large SUV.

There’s no doubt that it uses parts from the F-150 Raptor. It also looks as though they’ve added parts from the bins of the Expedition and even the extinct Excursion.

My question is, how did they get from F-150 Raptor pickup to SUV?

While some are assuming they grafted the SUV section onto the existing pickup, I’m going out on a limb to say that perhaps they just added the doors and front end from an F-150 Raptor to an Expedition, added the Raptor taillights and the Excursion barn doors.

To me, that seems like the path of least resistance. What say you?
