Truck YeahThe trucks are good!  

The 2011 to 2014 Ford Raptor is highly off-road capable with 411 horsepower. The Shelby Baja 700 adds a 2.9 liter supercharger, big ol' exhaust, jump-worthy suspension, and takes the output up to (you guessed it) 700 horsepower.

The whole Shelby kit includes a a 2.9 liter Whipple supercharger for the 6.2 V8, bigger throttle bodies and injectors, "a more robust heat exchanger," and a Borla exhaust.

Underfoot are 3" King remote-bypass shocks, 18" wheels, and BF Goodrich KO2 All-Terrain tires.

Interior is dressed up with some Shelby accents, and customers will be able to order bumpers and lights as well.

Shelby American's Senior Designer and Test Driver Vince LaViolette reckons "We've built a truck with ultimate performance and off-road capabilities."

The company's only signing off on 50 examples, and each will be "numbered and documented with a unique Shelby CSM number and entered into the official Shelby Registry" if that means anything to you.

Clearly it means something to some people, and I'm sure buyers will be hoping they might be able to unload this at auction without losing too much money on it someday.

I get that Shelby has a lot of pedigree associated with its name, but for $45,000 I might be more tempted to just buy a spare Raptor for when I split my first one in half. Does look damn fine in that color scheme though.
