In the world of trucks there are few purchases more extravagant than a new Ford F-150 Raptor, but some fans didn’t think it was quite big enough.
Jeremy Dixon from Tucson’s F250R.com wanted something a bit bigger so he built the MegaRaptor.
This converted F-250 Super Duty is an off-road monster with a tougher frame and suspension than its little brother.
The MegaRaptor’s 6.7 liter PowerStroke V8 turbo-diesel engine can crank out 440 hp and 860 lb-ft of torque, which is a pretty big step up from the regular Raptor’s standard EcoBoost V6.
F250R will convert any 2005-2016 era F-250 for about $28,000. Depending on the specs of the F-250 base, the total cost of your new MegaRaptor could be more than $70,000.
While most of you won’t be able to afford the MegaRaptor, you can at least see it in action with the video below.

The Ford F-150 Raptor is a lot of machine. In addition to the truck’s massive footprint, it has extreme off-road racing shocks, a 450-horsepower turbocharged V6, and a quick-shifting 10-speed transmission. For most people, that’s enough. But for the few that want even more badass Ford in their driveway, there’s another choice: The F-250 MegaRaptor.
Built by a custom shop in Arizona called F250R, the F-250 MegaRaptor is this shop’s take on what the Raptor would look like mashed with Ford’s bigger, heavy-duty F-250 body. Widened, heightened fenders occupy all four corners, while some truly massive 46-inch (!) tires sit in the wheel wells. The truck is still an F-250 underneath, but from the outside, it looks like a straight-up stadium super truck.
In order to get the tires to fit, F250R installs a 4-inch lift kit, as well as a set of Bilstein 5100 shocks. Heavy-duty ten-lug patterns are fitted all around to accommodate the wheels.
F250R’s website says a base conversion starts at $28,000, plus the cost of a donor truck. It also states that every truck is custom made to order, meaning you can make it as badass as you desire.
If a brand new F-150 Raptor just isn’t cutting it for you, maybe give F250R a call. They’ll hook you up with something even crazier.

The new rumor on the internet is that new 2018 Pontiac GTO Judge is coming soon to the market. We all remember the rumor about new 2017 Pontiac Trans Am, but jet we have found out that the “Rumor” is not just rumor, the new Trans am has been made, an that is 7 of them, with Camaro Body kit, and it is not Pontiac, because we all know that Pontiac is dead!Is the new 2018 Pontiac GTO Judge is going to been made on same way like new Trans Am, and will it be limited edition, we will see soon. We all know that the The Judge was released back in 1969, and it was intended as a low-cost model of the car. Yet, according to rumors new GTO will be more powerful, and looks more awesome! But let’s get back to what we found so far!
Now, when we talk about the engine options for new GTO, there are few rumors on the net. 6.2-liter Camaro V8, 7.0 and so on. But if it goes like with Bandit Edition limited, that it is currently custom, and you could order what engine you want. But, if you ask us, we would like to see 7.4-liter LSX V8 engine, 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger with 840 hp. Now, that is something great if you wanna have real muscle car, and you wanna enjoy the ride!
Now, with so many rumors on the internet, we wanna go with the one that is possible, because we know that Pontiac is dead!
We think that they will use donor Camaro body kit, and do some little adjustments to him like they did on new Bandit, and will make custom made GOT Judge just like you wannaIf we take the case with new Trans am Bandit Edition and limited edition of 77, with the starting price of $115,000, including the donor Chevrolet Camaro (according to Top Speed), but it may be little different, we can expect that new GTO will cost around $150,000 (including the donor Chevrolet Camaro), which is little too much, but on the other hand, this is GTO Judge.
Remember this article is based on the rumors, but we all remember the rumor about Ford Bronco (it’s going to be made), and rumor about Trans am, so this is more likely to be truth than just fools advertising!
Our opinion is that it will be custom made (because Pontiac is dead), and it will be limited edition.
Elon Musk just announced Tesla will be making a Roadster sports car. Cue: The sound of techie gear-heads the world over salivating.
Rightly so. This car would be enough to make Dominic Toretto crack a smile. The new version of the Roadster, a convertible no less, will muster zero to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, quicker than the average Formula 1 car.
It’ll hit a top speed of a quarter mile in 8.9 seconds, in a world where 10-second cars are coveted, so The Fast and The Furious taught us.
Top speed reaches somewhere north of 250 mph, putting it in the realm of the fastest production cars on the planet, like the Bugatti Chiron and Koenigsegg Agera, reports Wired.
Not to mention, it’s also pretty handy for the school run, with four seats – if you’re travelling with two small people – decent cargo room.
With an astounding 620 miles of range, thanks to a 200-kilowatt hour battery pack, it’s about double what you get in the most capable Model S.
That gets you from Inverness to Cornwall – essentially the whole length of the UK – without having to charge up.
No surprise the base price will be $200,000 and reserving your spot on the list will cost you $50,000, but that’s still cheaper than the Bugatti.
If the car itself wasn’t enough to get your gears going, just wait until you hear about how Elon Musk introduced the beast.
After introducing his new electric 18-wheeler truck, which looks pretty impressive in itself, the lights dimmed to blackout and Musk stepped off stage.
At that moment, Sabotage by the Beastie Boys came on over the speaker system, the 18-wheeler’s cargo hold opened and the Roadster glided out from its cavernous depths, like a weirdly majestic technological birthing ceremony.
The point of this is to give the hardcore smackdown to gasoline cars.
The original Roadster was Tesla’s first car, with the proof of concept built between 2008 to 2012, designed by the young automaker’s as way of showing electric cars could be cool, not just overgrown golf carts.
We’ve come a long way and they’ve certainly made their point with this revival
Let’s just hope Musk brings the Roadster to market before humanity is drastically altered beyond recognition when we are forced to ‘merge’ with technology to compete with machine (like the ones he creates), as he has previously predicted.
Speaking at the World Government Summit in Dubai, the tech mogul explained how eventually, machines will outpace the human brain and replace people in certain fields of work
Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.
It’s mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself – particularly output.
The motoring future is here people – well, by 202o, if Musk’s notoriously generous ETAs are to be believed.
But, it’s worth the wait; a work of art, even for someone like me, who still proudly brandishes a provisional driving licence at night club doormen.
There’s just something sexy about a woman who’s good with her hands.
Meet Malorie Woods, a mechanic, racer, model, and self described horsepower freak.
Take a look at some of her best work on Instagram before checking out her reverse mount video below.
This old man is my hero!! He appeared to be in his 60s and STILL begging for runs in traffic and getting SIDEWAYS! He refuses to get old!!!
Classic car hero Tom Scarpello ended the frequent barroom discussion topic of how somebody should make a brand-new version of a classic car when his company, Revology Cars introduced a 1966 Mustang with contemporary chassis and drivetrain technology beneath the period sheetmetal in 2014.
Having built fastback and convertible editions of the original Mustangs, followed by a Shelby GT350-specification high-performance version, Revology has moved on to the second-generation Mustang of 1967-’68, with the Revology 1967 Shelby GT500.
This neo-hot rod is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter Ford “Coyote” double overhead cam V8 built by Roush Performance to provide 600 horsepower and 475. torque, so Revology’s Shelby is faster than the originals were back in the good old days.
It stops and turns better too, thanks to the Wilwood six-piston front/four-piston rear disc brakes, rack-and-pinion steering and coil spring rear suspension instead of the old leaf springs.
Those are all fabulous under-the-skin upgrades that a modern car driver might not necessarily notice if they aren’t familiar with the shortcomings of the original model, but the new Shelby also includes modern climate control and infotainment technology that every driver will notice and appreciate.
There are other small touches too, like all-LED lighting throughout, so there will never be a burned out bulb. The cabin is appointed with brushed stainless steel, walnut wood and leather where the original car employed plastic and vinyl. And the rear seat folds down for convenient pass-through to the trunk for carrying long items.
This thing is so practical, you’d be irresponsible not to buy it. Prices start at $219,000 for the six-speed manual transmission version (the one you want) and $222,840 for the six-speed automatic. But you want the manual.
If you thought the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat was going to keep its crown as the king of American muscle cars, you were wrong. That’s because the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon just showed up, ready to put its absurdly powerful predecessor to shame.
You know how people reacted to the news that the Challenger Hellcat put out a whopping 707 horsepower? Turns out, it wasn’t enough for Dodge, since for this new muscle car, they cranked things up by fitting it with the most powerful production V8 engine in history.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon still uses the same 6.2-liter Hemi V8 as its predecessor. Except, this time around, it’s being equipped with a larger supercharger and a host of new parts that boost the power output to a whopping 840 horsepower and 770 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to get it from standstill to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds, all while being able to do a wheelie from dead stop. Yes, it can do a wheelie – just slam on the gas from standstill and you’ll go a little under three feet with the front wheels airborne.
Features include an eight-speed automatic transmission, the largest functional hood scoop in any production car, TransBrake function for quicker launches, Nitto street-legal drag racing tires, and a curb weight of 4,280 pounds. Inside, only the driver seat exists, although you can add a passenger seat and backseats as options for a dollar each.
Only 3,300 units of the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be built. No pricing has been announced, but they’re reportedly working to get it under $100,000.
