David Beckham Used to Own This Ford F-150 Pickup Truck, Now You Can Bid on It

The Harley-Davidson has always been a sought-after version of the light-duty Ford F-150, regardless of model year or generation. Not even David Beckham could resist buying one. More specifically, a 2002 Ford F-150 Supercharged Harley-Davidson Edition.

The former England national football/soccer team captain is known to splurge lots of his hard-earned cash on flashy cars, from 911s to Conti GTs. However, the former football player has a soft spot for all things Americana, which is why Beckham has been seen in the hot seat of a Jeep Wrangler, Cadillac Escalade, and fifth-gen Chevrolet Camaro. A full-size workhorse is a perplexing point in Beckham’s car history, though.

Slated to go under the hammer on April 30 at the International Ford Show in Sandown Park, UK, the SuperCrew-bodied pickup truck shows 95,900 miles (154,336 kilometers) on the clock. After Beckham got bored with it, the F-150 has changed hands three times. Of course, the truck comes with a certificate of authenticity and a V5, as well as a thumping great 5.4-liter supercharged Triton V8 powerplant.

The engine in question is similar to that of the F-150 Lightning, although it’s 40 HP and 25 lb-ft less potent. Still, 340 HP and 425 lb-ft (576 Nm) is plenty enough to rack up the miles and accelerate to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.2 seconds.

The difference in output can be explained by the larger pulley employed by the Lightning’s supercharger system, the full-vehicle-length exhaust instead of the Lightning’s abbreviated pipes, and the smaller opening in the front valence (which allows less air to flow through the intercooler).

Another little detail that separates the tenth-generation Ford F-150 Harley-Davidson Edition from a lesser SuperCrew is that the rear bench seat has been exchanged for two captain chairs separated by a center console. If you’re interested in this truck, you should know that Beckham’s workhorse is estimated to go for as much as £12,000. That's $17,195 at current exchange rates or $9,000 short of a 2016 Ford F-150 XL.
