Ford has a new Raptor in the pipeline for 2017, but that isn’t stopping Shelby from cranking the current truck up to 11.
The company has announced the Baja 700 Raptor packing “over 700 horsepower,” but hasn’t announced an exact number yet. According to the company, the Baja 700 “represents Shelby’s ultimate development for the Ford SVT Raptor platform” and gets its additional power through a Whipple supercharger system. Other upgrades to the off-road ready pickup include competition designed suspension from Rogue Racing and Baja-proven BFGoodrich K02 18-inch tires.

The Shelby Baja 700 Raptor will be limited to just 50 units and will run Raptor owners at least $45,000 for the upgrades. It’s a major price difference compared to the original 2013 Shelby Raptor package that ran $17,995 but that model only packed 575 hp. Each Shelby Baja 700 Raptor will be numbered and documented in the Shelby Registry.
