Combining the best attributes of the world’s finest high-performance machines for air and ground, Ford’s design team created a Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor based on the U.S. Air Force’s Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor fighter jet for auction at the recent AirVenture Oshkosh.
The one-of-a-kind truck fetched (US) $300,000 for the Experimental Aircraft Association Gathering of Eagles – an organization and an event committed to aviation and encouraging youth involvement in flight.
Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager, said the F-22 F-150 Raptor celebrates the fighter jet’s dominance of the skies and the consistent leadership of F-Series on the ground.
Highlights of the Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor include:
∙ Whipple-intercooled, high-output 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost® making 545 horsepower and 660 lb.-ft. of torque – taking off-road performance to intimidating new levels
∙ Modified Addictive Desert Design front suspension and bump stop kit
∙ Deaver rear spring pack to provide a smooth, progressive suspension
∙ Fox bypass series shocks with adjustable compression and rebound valving to customize damping for on-road and off-road use
∙ Innov8 Racing custom forged beadlock wheels with Falcon Wildpeak tires
∙ Upgraded Alcon six-piston painted calipers, oversized rotors, high-friction pads
∙ Modular off-road 1.3-million candela LED lighting system by KC Hilites
∙ Kicker audio system with 1,500 watts of amplification
∙ Unique Sherwin-Williams exterior paint integrating F-22 Raptor jet cues including titanium grille with front silhouette of the aircraft.
