The world's fastest snowcat
Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block is known for his awesome driving skills which can be seen on many viral videos on YouTube. Recently, Block has launched a surprising new project, inspired by creating the ultimate backcountry snowboard expedition vehicle, the F-150 RaptorTrax.
The F-150 RaptorTrax is built from a Ford Racing F-150 Raptor pickup truck and was enhanced by Special Vehicle Concepts in California. The truck is equipped with snowboard racks, a roof basket, a rear-mounted winch, interior storage for snacks and drinks, an exterior stereo for blasting music on-site, exterior-mounted Rigid Industries lighting, and four burly Mattracks.
Aside from the exterior looks and track upgrades, the F-150 RaptorTrax is also equipped with a supercharged 6.2L V8 engine, a full roll cage, and Recaro seats.
"I absolutely love my daily driver Ford Raptor, especially since I live out here in the mountains of Park City, so to build out this mountain assault vehicle with a Raptor as the base platform made total sense to me. It's an absolute beast of a machine and I'm stoked with how it's turned out” said Block.
Block’s F-150 RaptorTrax is set to be in action in a full video later this year. The F-150 RaptorTrax will also be on display at Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, later this week.
