2013 Shelby Raptor Released at New York Auto Show

Shelby Raptor Released in New York City

WESTLAND, Mich.- Shelby American has just released the powerful 2013 Shelby Raptor muscle truck in New York City. The much-anticipated release took place at the New York International Auto Show, one of the biggest car and truck events in the world. The 2013 Shelby Raptor released at the New York Auto Show is Shelby American's latest super truck with ferocious styling and bragging rights to 575 horsepower under the hood.

Shelby American is world-famous for their work in muscling-up Ford cars and trucks with extra horsepower, substantial upgrades, and wicked design tweaks. The process for the Shelby Raptor starts using the 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor as its base. The engine is then supercharged up to 575 horsepower and the vehicle is modified to handle the additional power. A Borla exhaust is fitted onto the vehile and the cooling system undergoes a serious upgrade, with a Shelby/Whipple system being installed. 

Besides jacking up the engine, Shelby American also goes to work on some of the super truck’s cosmetic aspects, by wrapping the interior with custom leather, installing custom Shelby emblems, and adding their ususal striking graphics. The upgrades cost a total of $17,995.

Shelby American’s original press release indicated that they intended to only produce 100 Shelby Raptor trucks. However, because of overwhelming demand, Shelby American has recently decided to up that number to 500.
