Ok, you can stop drooling. Ford has dropped its manliest of male testosterone version of the F-150 onto the market, the Raptor. And to be honest, we want one!

It’s incredibly impractical of course. Where the hell are you going to park a 5.6m or 5.9m long truck like the Ford F-150 Raptor? Even if you can find a parking spot it probably still won’t fit since it’s also almost 2.5m wide with the mirrors folded out.

And we haven’t even started on the amount of fuel the 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 with 450hp and 510lb-ft of torque married up to a 10(!)-speed automatic consumes. For those of you who are wondering, its 15l/100km and we can only assume that’s being conservative.

But none of that matters, once you see the Ford F-150 Raptor, you most likely will start drooling and desperately trying to find the phone number for your nearest Ford dealership.

Pricing starts at just below US$50k for the SuperCab version and a little over US$52k for the SuperCrew, although you can easily push the price of the latter to around US$70k with the options list. For a RHD version (kinda need that in Australia) you’ll be looking at upwards of AU$200k for one.

Hmmm….decisions, decisions.
