The Last 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Just Sold For $157,000

Head down to your local Ford dealership and you can pick up a new F-150 for as little as $26,730. Opt for the Raptor (if you can get yours hands on one) and you’ll be looking at a price tag of $48,860. But one example just sold at auction for $157,000.

The one-of-a-kind Raptor bears the last VIN in the production run, and was donated by Ford to benefit JDRF – the leading research fund for type-1 diabetes. The performance truck commanded a winning bid of $157,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale last week, accompanied by an additional, anonymous donation of $50,000, for a total of $207,000 raised for the charitable cause.

The winning bid was placed by one Sam Pack, chief executive of the Sam Pack Five Star Ford dealership in Carrollton, Texas, just outside of Dallas.

“Providing support to JDRF in its fight against diabetes is extremely important to my family and everyone at Ford Motor Company,” said Ford Performance marketing manager Henry Ford III. “The auction of this one-of-a-kind Raptor is a true testament to Ford’s commitment to JDRF and a great way to raise awareness for this extremely worthy cause.”

    so, wait, does that mean they dont make them anymore? i didnt know.

    • SteersUright

      No, it means they’re going to switch over to the 2018 designation as soon as possible and there are thousands already produced prior to this one which you can go out and buy at the moment. Im assuming the assembly line sees more profit being utilized for run of the mill F150’s and a certain number of these Raptors are pumped out and then back to business as usual. I could be completely wrong about all of this. lol.
