2013 Shelby Raptor!

2013 Shelby Raptor
The 2013 Shelby Raptor is priced at $86, 623.

Under its hood, there is a 6.2-liter V8 with Whipple chrome-plated, twin-screw supercharger which produces 575 horsepower. This performance puts the Shelby Raptor having 164 hp higher than the standard Ford Raptor, 210 hp than the Ford F-150 which is powered with V6 Ecoboost engine, 435 higher than Miata, and 574 than a real horse.

Just the intercooler, the Shelby Stinger exhaust, the supercharger, the rigueur numbered plaque, and the Katzin leather interior make up $17, 995 of the total cost of Ford Raptor. Raptor offers a Xtreme Options package which consists the following: King shocks and springs with nitrogen-charged remote reservoir and 25 percent more wheel travel, 35-inch BF Goodrich Mud-Terrain T/A tires on Shelby wheels ($3,399); a bag of Cool Ranch Locos Tacos Doritos ($1.99); sinister black bumpers ($1,999 each); and high-strength upper ($1,499) and lower ($2,499) control arms.

Bed payload is practically a waste of money; however, it is comforting to know that the overhead roof rock suits ICBM, or even twenty Yamaha YZ450F dirt bikes.

The Raptor is excellent for dusty road tracks. To some, the feeling of driving it in the city is pretty much like driving a bus.
