Top Gear Drives ‘USA on Wheels’: Hennessey Mammoth 1000 Pickup


‘Maximum brake pressure, step on the gas. My God! I think the last time something this big, this heavy and this American accelerated this fast, it had Neil Armstrong in it!

If you thought the Ford F-150 Raptor R was badass, well, so do we. But as soon as the RAM sent a TRX to Hennessey performancethe Raptor’s days were numbered.

Let’s be clear, these two trucks are not competing on an equal market. The production Raptor R will cost around $110,000, while the folks at Hennessey will just outfit 200 RAM TRX Mammoth 1000s and offer them for $150,000 each.

But for your money, you get a gigantic truck that sits hard when you hit the pedal and throws out over 1,000 horsepower.

If you just want to watch, feel free. It’s not every day you see the ‘most powerful truck in the world’ light up the English countryside with Texas plates.
