If the new generation Ford F-150 Raptor comes to the day, the old version still draws molten extreme off-piste. Shelby is very attached to the American juggernaut and now offers 700 Baja declination.
At the factory, the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is with the Mercedes G 63 AMG and 65, one of the most unnecessary gear and delirious in the world.
But like all these fighters against anti-pollution standards, the pickup has abandoned his big V8 for a V6 twin-turbo EcoBoost . No less powerful than the previous proposal, it will however less energy, but purists will always turn to the Shelby Baja 700.
Since the VelociRaptor 620 hp and raised by Hennessey, Shelby decided to push the faders further. Grafted with a Whipple supercharger, larger butterflies, high flow injectors and a Borla exhaust system entrusted to the 6.2-liter V8 from 411 hp to pass 700 hp !
The Baja 700 will also feature some special edition graphics and 18-inch custom wheels, Shelby striping, and optional rear and front Rogue Racing bumpers. Likewise, the suspension is designed specifically for off-road use, allowing it to tackle tough terrain without worries.
The Shelby Raptor was first launched at the New York Auto Show in 2012, and this newest rendition builds upon it in all the right ways. Said Shelby American’s VP of Operations Akos J. Feher, “Fifty lucky owners will have the baddest, best-handling and best-looking Shelby truck we offer.” Price starts at $45,000 USD.
This new edition also promises new equipment suitable for use outside of the box. Production of Shelby F-150 Raptor Baja 700 will be limited to 50 units only.
