This Insane Ford F-150 Raptor Study Makes All Others Seem Bland

The Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most exciting pickup trucks on the market but this particular example from the mind of Alberto Luque Marta takes things to an entirely different level.

This wild creation was actually designed back in late 2017 but only recently came across (y)our desks. It could serve as the perfect off-roader for Batman, one of those intriguing ‘doomsday preppers’ or anyone with a fascination for powerful pickup trucks that can tackle difficult off-road terrain.

One of the most eye-catching aspects of this F-150 Raptor is the massive V8 engine sticking out of the hood. Mounting an engine like this is extremely impractical and not only would it impede the view out of the windshield but could also adversely impact the vehicle’s off-roading abilities, particularly since there is no visible snorkel to feed the engine with air when the pickup crosses any kind of deep water crossing.

Beyond the engine popping out of the hood, this F-150 Raptor includes an aggressive front end with a black bull bar, winch and scuff plate. Additionally, there is a large cage on the roof supporting four spotlights. Other modifications include impressive off-road wheels and tires and a brush bar on the rear bumper.

Each and every F-150 Raptor to leave the factory looks the part and offers impressive off-road credentials. This example, excluding the engine design, shows how just a few aftermarket components can transform the Raptor into a zombie-killer, roadtrip warrior, off-road crusader, or just about anything else you’d want it to be.

      I was wondering the same thing.

    So…instead of a lift kit on the suspension…they retrofitted a V8…then put a lift kit “on” the engine?? Please someone help us with more information before the internet trolls get to commenting.
