This is why men buy trucks.
The stock Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is already an incredible thing as is, but what happens when the folks at Shelby get their hands on the most bad-ass off-road pickup truck on the market today? For starters, Shelby’s crew has upped the supercharged 6.2-liter V8’s output from 411 horsepower to 575 ponies. Along with a number of other modifications including 35" rims, Shelby’s take on the ultimate F-150 is nothing short of glorious. In fact, some 30 percent of the company’s business right now is upgrading Raptors for eager owners.
And when you think about it, the Shelby Raptor may just be the greatest pickup truck on the planet. It drives beautifully on the open road, and yet it turns into a complete beast once you go off pavement. Check out this video of pro driver Justin Bell as he experiences this truck’s madness first-hand.
