F-22 Raptor-Inspired Ford Raptor

What Happens When an Offroad-Weapon Makes a Baby With an Actual Weapon?

For years now, major car manufacturers have been building interesting one-off cars for promotional purposes and charity events. It’s a great way to promote your car and brand while also showing support for important causes and charities.

Ford has been particularly active in this field, with its newest custom-creation being a fully modified F-150 Raptor built specifically for the Gathering of Eagles fundraising event put on by the Experimental Aircraft Association. On previous occasions, Ford has had a history of presenting ceremonial Mustangs, but this year saw the contribution of an impressively modified F-150 Raptor inspired by the fighter jet of the same name:

The Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.

The combination of these monsters only makes sense since the two vehicles not only share a name but represent the best of the best in their respective classes. Ford knew that having a Raptor mounting sand dunes and a Raptor blasting through the skies was too ripe of an opportunity to pass and happily answered the challenge with this unique build.

The power has been bumped up to 565 hp: a cool 95 hp more than the standard version. The truck has also been dressed with a special paint job with colors almost identical to those used on the real F-22 Raptor. The addition of LED lighting, spare wheels in the back, and newly painted brake calipers give the truck a much more military look. Inside the revamped Raptor you’ll find a custom premium audio system.

This incredibly cool one-off Raptor will be auctioned off to the highest bidder with proceeds going to the Experimental Aircraft Association. Last year, a thoroughly modified Shelby GT350 brought in nearly $300,000, so we’re excited to see what this very special Raptor will fetch.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
