Shelby American Baja 700 Raptor Debuts
Only 50 Units Offered of Limited Edition Truck
The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor undoubtedly has a permanent place in the truck pantheon of one of the greatest factory pickups ever made, but that hasn’t stopped tuners and enthusiasts from increasing the performance level even further. Renowned domestic tuners, such as Hennessey, Roush and others, have built their interpretations of a Super Raptor, but one of the best-recognized names in the Ford performance community is Shelby American. The company is set to send off the outgoing 2014 Raptor in grand style with the Shelby American Baja 700, with just 50 units being offeredfor sale. Included in the Baja 700 transformation is a power bump from a substantial 575 hp to a stupendous 700, courtesy of a 2.9L Whipple supercharger, upgraded fuel injectors, and a higher-capacity heat exchanger for the air-to-water intercooler.
The trucks will get special badging to designate their rarity and optional Rogue Racing front and rear bumpers with available LED front lightbars. BF Goodrich K02 All-Terrain Tires are mounted on custom 18-inch wheels. The Baja 700 package, apart from the cost of the truck itself, is a cool $45,000. While that makes the Shelby Baja 700 a potentially six-figure proposition all-in, considering a well-equipped Escalade, Range Rover, or Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen can be configured to cost even more, it doesn’t seem that crazy.
