The Ford F-Series is not only the best-selling truck in America, but it’s also the best-selling car in America. We do the love the F-Series, but this F-150 is insane. And we mean that in the best possible way.
Say hello to the 700 hp Supercharged 2016 Shelby F-150. Shelby will only be cranking out 500 of these sweet-hot trucks, so if you want one, make a beeline to your nearest Ford dealer and get in your order.
The ‘normal’ Shelby F-150 with the naturally aspirated 395 hp motor will run you $85,500, but if you feel the need for speed and want the 700 hp supercharged version, it will set you back close to $100k.
The Shelby F-150 comes with the 5.0 L Ti-VCT V8 engine that delivers 385 hp and 387 lb-ft of torque. To get the output up to 700 hp, Shelby has added a supercharger, a massive cold air intake, high flow injectors, aluminum heat exchange and a billet aluminum high-flow throttle body. On top of that, the 2016 Shelby F-150 is fitted with a Borla dual exhaust system.
This beast of a truck will do 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds and top out at 135 mph.
Shelby replaces the stock front bumper with a tube frame unit featuring an opening for an LED lightbar. It also comes with a polycarbonate hood. The new bumper comes with stainless steel rivets and LED light pods.
Additional goodies include new fog lights, a beefed up bonnet and a new skid plate. You also get customized 18-inch wheels with K02 all terrain tires from BF Goodrich. To handle the terrain, the Shelby comes equipped with 2.5-inch internal bypass reservoir shock absorbers with speed adjusters.
Hey Ford… if your listening… we’re ready to test drive and review this monster. We’re waiting by the phone.
