The F-22 inspired 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor sold for $300k

Everyone who likes Ford cars knows that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the fastest and most capable trucks ever built. Similar sentiments can be applied to the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor. A few weeks ago, Ford teased a special edition version of the Raptor that combined elements of both models, though details beyond the visual changes were scarce. Ford Performance had its hands under the hood, adding a huge amount of power to the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6. At last week’s Experimental Aircraft Association AirVenture Oshkosh, the truck fetched $300,000 in a charity auction, all benefiting the Young Eagles program.

The standard Raptor makes an already impressive 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. This Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor makes 545 hp and 660 lb-ft of torque. That’s 110 lb-ft more than the 2017 Ford GT supercar. Power is still sent through a 10-speed automatic. The extra power comes courtesy of a bump in boost, a Whipple intercooler, and a full Borla exhaust kit. Ford hasn’t listed performance numbers, but considering the standard model hits 60 mph in just over 5 seconds, a 0-60 mph in the mid 4s isn’t out of the question.
