    Any pics of the intake/supercharger off the vehicle? Looks crazy. Ford dealer had 5 new Raptors on Monday, already sold 3 last month. Buddy who works there says the 6.2 will probably have a $25k markup when it comes out.

    Just shows... money can buy just about everything... except sense and taste.

    I don't know how one could choose a souped up f-150 over a European spec land rover, or something with similar legendary reliability and off road capability. Isn't he planning on doing some serious off-roading. There is a reason why over land expeditions usually go with land rovers or toyotas... Odds are he paid over $70k for it, and for what? To be cool...

    Pretty sweet rig, but that could suck getting 2mpg in the desert. Must be nice to have money

    if he has the money to buy a new raptor to ship to Qatar to hunt with a royal family, he probably has the money to find that it is inadequate and buy a land rover immediately.

    :rofl: Land Rover reliability
    :rofl: Land Rover better offroad than this
    :rofl: To be cool? 99% of the people over there have never heard of a F150, let alone a Raptor. Dolt. I doubt he'll be showing off for little ethiopian kids.

    He might as well buy a ZR1 to be more badass.
