Ford’s F-150 RaptorTrax is the World’s Fastest Snowcat

By: | November 26th, 2014

The RaptorTrax is a new concept vehicle built off of a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor base developed exclusively for professional rally driver Ken Block.

This 500bhp snowmobile is designed for extreme off-road performance for both snow and road.

This street-legal monster, equipped with a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine, hits around 13 MPG on the open highway. It can go from 0-60 mph in just 7 seconds.

Decked out in a special green and black paint scheme, the wheels of the truck are replaced by Mattracks to make it look like a snowmobile.

Though the tracks may be the most noticeable modification to this Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, the RaptorTrax is also equipped with Recaro seats, an in-bed snowboard rack, a roof basket, a rear-mounted winch, absolute storage space, an external hi-fi sound system and beefed-up lighting by the Rigid Industries.
