New York Auto Show: Shelby does the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

Article by Christian A., on March 29, 2013

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is already an extreme pickup, but if you want more we have the solution: the Shelby Raptor! Unveiled at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the new Shelby Raptor takes the impressive Ford SVT Raptor to another level and adds a 2.9 liter supercharger on the massive 6.2-liter V8 engine but also a new Shelby Borla exhaust system.

The result: the Raptor delivers 575 hp, from 411 hp! The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that transfers the power to all four wheels. Moreover, the Shelby Raptor comes with 35-inch Goodrich All-Terrain tires and optional custom wheels. Pricing starts at $17,995 and does not include the standard Raptor.

The production is limited to 100 units, and Shelby will built these units per model year. Each will be numbered and documented with a unique Shelby CSM number and entered into the official Shelby Registry. "As a native Texan, Carroll Shelby loved powerful trucks," said John Luft, president of Shelby American. "Carroll connected his love for trucks with his passion for performance on several projects, with the first one over 30 years ago. The latest Shelby truck was created to conquer any terrain with serious velocity."
