Ford SVT Raptor Shelby 1 545x364 at Shelby Ford Raptor Announced

If the standard Ford SVT Raptor seems a bit weak to you, Shelby has just announced their version based on the 2013 version, and it’s a beast. Not that the standard car is a slouch – it has 410 horsepower – but this thing has a colossal, for a pickup truck, 575 horsepower.

That power is the result of installing a 2.9 liter supercharger mounted on the 6.2 liter V8 engine. It is distributed between all four wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode. The car is also fitted with 35-inch Goodrich All-Terrain tires and optional custom wheels, so off-roading should be even more fun.

Shelby Raptor is offered as a post title package for $17,995. It is limited to 100 units, each coming with a numbered plaque.
