2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

The right to own the first production 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor high-performance offroad pickup fetched $130,000 (plus a 10 percent buyer's premium) at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The Raptor sold was a 5.4-liter V-8 model, rated at 320 horsepower / 390 pounds-feet of torque, slated to go on sale this summer.

Not auctioned was the brand-new 6.2-liter premium V-8 version, estimated at 400 hp and more than 400 pounds-feet of torque. The 6.2-liter Raptor is expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter of 2009.

All proceeds above the Raptor's retail price (still to be announced) will be donated by Ford to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Comments

Thats a lot of money, but a very nice truck. At least being a production vehicle, the buyer can legally drive this awesome pickup on our roads, unlike the majority of the other cconcepts that Ford and GM very auctioning off.
