Default ford raptor

So.... ford has introduced the Raptor. it competed AND FINISHED! the Baja 1000. for a factory built, production model all they did was add a cage to make it score legal. (* and some safety improvements.) but for the most part all suspension and drivetrain was stock as offered off the showroom floor, pretty impressive for 45k$ with a warranty. however i wil be waiting till spring when the new motor(i.e. BIGGER) is released with 500 hp. projected. a stock truck i can buy off the showroom floor with 13 inches of wheeltravel 500 horses and can run, AND FINISH a grueling 1000 mile race that breaks 150k dollar trucks on an hourly basis, Im in! pictures and video is all over the web, google it! its pretty cool even for those that dont like prerunners.

I first saw the Raptor in January 2009 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Since then, I see them on the road a few times a week. When you live 2 miles from Ford Headquarters, you see everything.

I saw a black/slate gray one on the road a few weeks ago and wondered what that was. Thought some numb nut had blown a bunch of money modding an F150. They look nice, but I'm not interested. Can't afford it

The last one i saw on the road was about 3 or 4 weeks ago in Anaheim on the 5. It was a white one with the graphics. I can do without the graphics but its a sick looking truck.

I still contend that you can't duplicate it on a new truck* and hold the same quality for less money. No way.


*yes, you can do it with a beat down 10 year old F150, but that's apples to oranges. The Raptor isnt a used truck after all either...

The graphics are optional.
