Default $100K Limited Edition Ford Raptor

FR Raptor XT: Ford Racing's New $100K Limited-Edition Baja Pre-Runner


The Ford SVT Raptor XT, a production version of the fully-caged, coilover-suspended, 6.2-liter, 500HP Raptor Baja pre-runner. Pick up your jaws and believe, Ford's building fifty and selling 'em for a cool $99,950.

There aren't any official images of the Raptor XT but there don't really need to be — just take the Raptor R that ran the SCORE Baja 1000 last year and add an interior and glass and you have the Raptor XT. We're not kidding. The Raptor XT comes equipped with a whole host of very serious off-road racing upgrades over the already crazy-capable Raptor. Let's just run down the list:

* 500 HP version of Ford's new 6.2 liter V8
* Full 4130 chromoly roll cage
* Coilover four-link rear suspension with 18" of wheel travel
* Fox Racing tuned front suspension with 15" of travel
* 37" BFG Baja T/A tires with bead locks
* Tubular bumpers
* Auxilary light bar
* Front locking differential in addition to the standard rear locker
* Factory five point harnesses and racing seats


Needless to say. It's a beast. A BEAST. That's 89 HP more than the optional 6.2 liter V8 upgrade in the Raptor, already the most powerful gas engine in the truck market at 411 HP at 5,500 RPM (that's regular Raptor only). With the addition of the full roll cage, race-ready suspension and aux lighting, it's expected to be the choice for professional desert racing teams to do their pre-running in — the thing's got satellite radio and air conditioning fer Chrissake.

Now the bad news. They're off-road only — no VIN number and no chance to get one. Ford's only going to build a total of 50 of these monsters and finally, they're selling them at a monstrous $99,950. That's a $100k pick-em-up truck. Sure, it's probably cheaper than you can build a fer-real Baja runner, but those two figures together place the Raptor XT into the realm of supermodels and movie stars; It's beautiful to look at, and you can't help but imagine how it performs, but it's not within the realm of possibility to have for yourself.

Kind of weak with no VIN, as Mr Stone said, you can get a regular raptor and do all that work to it and make it equivalent at the least and be street legal.

Wow...im waiting in line...at the bank, i wonder if she'll think my note is for real. it says"gimme your money i need to buy a truck" that thing is unreal, i would love to buy one of those, the no title kinda makes me nervouse, didnt they do that with the mustang from the performance catalog? no vin no title? track only? still for a hundred grand, thats a pretty good deal, i dont think you can build a capable rig with all that technology for less than that. as some of you know. i wonder what kind of warranty it comes with...LOL

i would assume if your dropping 100k on a non street legal vehicle myke, its going to be put to use. i can see where buying those crazy expensive sports cars is impractical (cant enjoy them to the fullest), but just take that thing out to the desert and jump it! hell if you roll it its all good, its caged!

yea but that costs even more money, and all those people with those highend pasta rockets cant drive worth of shit. the complex corners in a racetrack would cause them to spin/crash so fast

Just the fact that they're building these is proof that Ford is pulling through the rough times...

I wonder if this smells of a factory racing program. A lot of times a car maker will produce and sell a limited number of specialty vehicles, just the number required for homogenization into a racing class. Think back to the Class B rally cars of the 80's and 90's, they were sold to the public, just in the numbers required to make them legal to race. Thats how we got the Porsche 959 among others. So, again I say, to me this smells of a factory racing program.

You're not. Thats the point of not issuing one. It's not street legal.
