Why did Top Gear USA host and hooning legend Tanner Foust bring a Ford SVT Raptor to the Nürburgring? Because he could, that's why, which is the best reason to do something like this.

We first reported on Foust's trip around the 'Ring in Ford's supertruck almost a year ago. But that remained a mystery, as we never really saw what it looked like in full assault mode. Now we do, and it looks decidedly awesome.

I can just imagine the looks on the faces of all the M3 and 911 drivers on the 'Ring that day when they saw this American beast in their rearview mirrors. Many pairs of pants were ruined that day, I'm sure.

Mystery solved in the best way possible.
