To get the Shelby Raptor, customers will need to purchase a 2013 Ford SVT Raptor 4x4 and then have Shelby make the modifications. Production will be limited to 100 models per year.

Once modified, the Shelby Raptor will be equipped with a 6.2-liter V-8 (standard on the Ford Raptor) with an added 2.9-liter supercharger.

“As a native Texan, Carroll Shelby loved powerful trucks,” said John Luft, president of Las Vegas-based Shelby American. “Carroll connected his love for trucks with his passion for performance on several projects, with the first one 30 years ago. The latest Shelby truck was created to conquer any terrain with serious velocity.”
