The Ford SVT Raptor truck is already a very cool truck that is aimed at high-speed desert racing. Shelby has taken already high performance Ford vehicles and amped up the performance for years. Mostly Shelby is known for making modified mustangs. Shelby is taking that modification to the Ford SVT Raptor truck and the result is awesome.
The truck is called the Shelby Baja 700 and it has a supercharger under the hood among lots of other new parts. Along with that blower comes a new throttle body, new injectors, a heat exchanger, and a Borla exhaust. As the name of the truck hints, Shelby says power output is 700hp. More power isn’t much good without the suspension to back it up off-road.
Shelby also fits the Baja 700 with 3-inch King coilovers, bypass rear shocks, Rogue racing upper and lower control arms, and 18-inch matte black wheels. Those wheels are shod with BFG K02 off-road tires. Shelby plans to make 50 of these trucks with the modifications going for $45,000. That is $45,000 over the base price of the Raptor you have to buy making the total price somewhere around $90,000.
