Say hello to the Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition, a pickup so absurd and with such a hilarious name that you may not think it’s actually real. But it is.
This wild creation comes from German Motors & Engineering, a little-known tuning company, and takes the already massive Ram 1500 and turns it into a monster that could run over hatchbacks like they’re small pebbles.
Bigfoot is based around the previous-generation Ram 1500 and benefits from a huge 9.5-inch (24 cm) suspension lift at all four corners. GME has been able to lift the pickup thanks to height-adjustable dampers from Fox, customized subframes, various new suspension components, and upgraded steering knuckles. On the off chance that customers wanted something even more obscene, GME has outfitted Bigfoot with flared fenders as well as 37-inch off-road tires and 20-inch wheels.
Those that buy this beast must be compensating for something…
GME then turned its attention towards the pickup’s powertrain. With the approval of the German Technical Control Board, the tuner outfitted the truck’s 5.7-liter V8 engine with an Edelbrock supercharger kit. This lifts power from the standard 395 and 410 lb-ft (556 Nm) up to a supercar-rivaling 550 hp and 530 lb-ft (718 Nm) of torque. GME says that it can extract up to 900 hp from the powertrain if customers are willing to shell out for new engine internals.
Completing the performance modifications is a bespoke exhaust system completed with remote-controlled valves and two 2.99-inch (76 mm) tailpipes.
In the pictures provided, the Ram 1500 Bigfoot Edition looks truly insane. We can’t begin to imagine what it would be like to see one cruising down a narrow European street.
