Shelby Baja Raptor F-150
By: Fedora Atjeh | September 14, 2017
American specialist Shelby American resurrects the Shelby Raptor, a wild off-roader based on the highly successful Ford F-150, yet conveniently engineered to be an even more capable off-road beast. It's called Shelby Baja Raptor F-150 and it's brutal, right?
To begin with, this Shelby Raptor conceals under the hood a V6 Ecoboost biturbo engine from Ford Performance, albeit with a custom cold air intake system, a higher flow air filter, a high performance aluminum intercooler or electronic enhancements, to achieve a power of 532 hp and a maximum torque of 827 Nm
The modifications in the six-cylinder engine are fine, but what really makes this Raptor special is what it incorporates under the bodywork to become a high-performance off-roader. We talked about the suspension developed by FOX Racing, fully adjustable, or the BFGoodrich KM2 tires mounted on 18-inch wheels.
Of course, a Shelby has to look like a Shelby, and that's why this pick-up gets a 'ram air' air intake on the hood, Shelby badges and decorative stripes, specific front and rear bumpers, LED light module front and rear, metal heels or spare wheel module in the drawer. In addition, the model is almost 8 centimeters higher than the standard.
The passenger compartment also has a special appearance, thanks to special leather upholstery for seats, Shelby Baja Raptor logos on carpet or console, decorative carbon fiber trim, commemorative plaque with model number, tinted windows, etc. ...
According to Shelby American, its Baja Raptor is already available in dealerships and costs $ 117,460, which in turn equals about 98,800 euros, approximately.
