Default Ken Block´s Ford F-150 RaptorTrax

Ken Block has done it again. After wowing the world (and YouTube) with the Subaru Impreza WRX STI Trax -- a rally-prepped STI shod with Mattracks -- back in 2009, Block has released his Ford-based follow-up. Block has just unveiled the badass Ford F-150 RaptorTrax -- a tracked and supercharged Ford Raptor designed to be the ultimate "mountain assault vehicle"

The Ford F-150 RaptorTrax certainly looks the part of a mountain assault vehicle. Built by California's Special Vehicle Concepts, the Raptor gets a suspension lift to make room for the four beastly Mattracks tracks, a full roll cage, Recaro bucket seats, and for good measure, a Whipple supercharger for the truck's 6.2-liter V-8. In addition to the performance goods, the RaptorTrax also gets a custom Hoonigan/Monster Energy camo livery, a rear-mounted winch, auxiliary lights, an exterior stereo, snowboard racks, a roof basket, and extra interior storage for snacks while out on the trail.

Since his switch from Subaru to Ford, Block says the RaptorTrax is something he's had in mind for a while. "I absolutely love my daily driver Ford Raptor, especially since I live out here in the mountains of Park City [Utah]," said Block. "To build out this mountain assault vehicle with a Raptor as the base platform made total sense to me. It’s an absolute beast of a machine and I’m stoked with how it’s turned out." As you'd expect, Block's new RaptorTrax will star in an upcoming YouTube video, set to be released in the winter of 2014-2015. Can't wait that long? The Ford F-150 RaptorTrax will be on display at the Winter X Games later this week in Aspen, Colo. In the meantime, check out the teaser of the RaptorTrax in action, and the the video of Block's old Subaru Impreza WRX STI Trax below.

Ken Block is "stoked".

Well, that's something.

It's the ultimate brotato vehicle. Too bad he didn't use a Broyota Brocoma for ultimate broness.
