It's always fun to watch a car guy try to figure out how to handle pickup trucks, especially a specialty truck like a Ford Raptor. Toss in some extra-special performance tuning and custom parts from a place like Shelby American, and you can see how quickly his world can get turned upside down. We certainly had a good time with the truck as well, when we gave it a thrashing outside Bridgeport, Texas a few months ago.
That said, former racecar driver and TV personality Justin Bell on the Motor Trend YouTube Channel does a pretty good job figuring out how to have fun with the 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Shelby Raptor on the Vegas Off-Road Experience dirt course. No, he doesn't get anywhere near the limits of the truck, but yes, he does it all with a British accent. We’re not sure this truck qualifies as being "blown up to outrageous performance levels," but we're sure it was fun going flat-out on the desert course.
