It’s not a real thing, you understand. But this Ford Raptor Mustang rendering kinda makes us wish it was.
With the help of a vibrant tuning scene and a host of aftermarket parts suppliers, the popular thing nowadays is to modify your regular Ford Ranger bakkie into something approaching a Raptor, not so? Bizarrely, no one has gone the other way and given their Ford truck the Mustang treatment.
Until KDesign, that is. The online render artist that brought you the Ford Puma Raptor, Ford Explorer Raptor and others (he’s clearly a big Raptor fan), has Raptored yet again and delivered this, the Ford Raptor Mustang!
Ford’s performance division in the US is working hard on a host of new Raptor offerings – including the F-150 and smaller Ranger Raptor, reputed to come with a 298 kW 2.7-litre V6 turbo petrol in the US to appease all those haters who say it’s underpowered. And yes, we do agree, the current 2.0-litre Bi-Turbo diesel is a trifle underpowered.
Moreover, this fanciful rendering of two seemingly mismatched vehicles gets us pining for a V8-powered Raptor. Of course, we can’t imagine Ford takin gsuch a radical route, but wouldn’t that be a thing nonetheless!
