Shelby to Build More Raptors?

Shelby

Shelby thought it would only build 100 examples of its modified Ford Raptor, but surging demand could see it significantly expand production.

You can’t keep a good truck down. That’s what Shelby American found after unveiling its modified Ford F-150 SVT Raptor in New York last month. Shelby said it would only make 100 examples of the 575-horsepower supercharged super-truck, each with an $18k sticker price over stock. But growing demand could see the legendary Ford tuner increase production to 500 each year. That may not be good news to customers who ordered a Shelby Raptor thinking it would remain rare, but will come as a welcome development for those still hoping to snag one.
