Justin Bell Manhandles the Shelby Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

Justin Bell + high-powered 7,210-lb off-road projectile + Vegas Off-Road Experience (VORE) = pleasing entertainment.
The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a bit of a masterpiece, but now Shelby has had their way with it, and the masterpiece has become a modern relic — a pièce de résistance … perhaps even Shelby’s magnum opus.
In the standard Raptor, you get 411 horsepower from the 6.2L V8. Once Shelby gets a hold of the SVT Raptor, they boost that horsepower number to 575 thanks to the glory of supercharging.
Let’s get to the bad news. Shelby is only building 100 of its massaged Ford F-150 SVT Raptors. The base price for one of these is $62,030, but the one you’ll see in the video is $83,623 … a lot more than the standard Raptor’s $44,035.
Forget all about that bad news, though, and watch the video.
