Ford’s 411 HP SVT Raptor is an awesome truck, and we bet no ones dares to state otherwise. Although it sounds outrageous, the SVT is actually just an entry-level Raptor, because the real muscle truck wear a Shelby badge and comes with 575 HP under its hood.
In case that’s not enough for you, the Detroit pickup can become even more extreme if taken to the right people. In this case, the right people conduct business in Katy, Texas, under the Extreme Offroad & Performance name. And extreme is right, because these fellows managed to add an extra 240 horses to Ford’s 6.2-liter big-bore V8 engine for a final output of 650 HP. Heck, this truck has more power than the McLaren MP4-12C!

How’s this possible you may ask? Well, Extreme Offroad & Perfomance, who built this vehicle for the SEMA 2012, fitted the pickup with several performance parts, including a Whipple supercharger, American Racing headers and a Corsa exhaust. We really don’t want to waste too much of your time with technicalities, but you can check out the complete list in the video posted below.

Now pump up the volume and hit that play button because you’re in for a real treat!
