Default One off Halo 4 Edition Raptor 550hp!!!

Gaming geeks may note the mean*2013 Ford F-150 SVT*Raptor Halo 4 Edition shown here is not actually featured in the game, but that makes the 550-hp customized*truck*no less thrilling to experience and drive. We were recently invited to preview and actually drive the grand-prize truck for Microsoft’s Halo 4 Infinity Challenge, the construction and customization of which was done by Galpin Auto Sports in the Los Angeles neighborhood of North Hills.The vehicle featured in the actual game — set in the year 2557 — is called the Warthog. Although a full-scale model of the Warthog was shown at the E3 2012 gaming conference in Los Angeles, it’s unknown if the scale model is actually functional and drivable. So the Raptor was chosen as a suitable stand-in for the futuristic space buggy.Vinyl wrapping has become a common trend in automotive customization for its relative affordability and ease of installation, and at first glance, it appeared the special-edition truck got a whole-body two-tone green wrap. GAS project manager Michael MacKellar was quick to point out that the Halo 4 project truck received a full custom paint job.Making the project even more challenging is that the base vehicle was painted white. MacKellar said the project team was hoping for a black truck, since the paint scheme was darker, and a black truck would not require the painting of the firewall, and other hidden areas. In a testament to the attention of detail GAS puts into its projects, MacKellar pointed out that the team painted the firewall as well.With a Whipple Supercharger system and Magnaflow exhaust, total power output is estimated at 550 hp. We can attest from a brief drive on the highway that the Halo 4 Raptor is definitely not underpowered. The throaty exhaust note is accompanied by the distinctive mechanical whine of the Whipple twin-screw blower,*which you can see (and hear) on*Truck Trend’s Facebook page.The inside of the truck features an Xbox that can feed a video signal to all four monitors in the cab. When in park, the*gameplay*can also be displayed on the dashboard touch screen. The other monitors are in the front-seat headrests, and another roof-mounted 10-inch flip-down monitor. The seats were reupholstered with green neoprene inserts and embroidered with the Halo 4 logo on the backrests. The two front doors as well as the rear Pace-Edwards power roll-top tonneau received the UNSC logo, and the xBox system was also customized with a green illuminated UNSC enclosure under the rear seat. Adding to the rugged looks of the truck is Line-X textured spray coating on the hood accents, front and rear bumpers, and fender flares.The suspension is mostly stock other than leveling the ride height with an adjustment to the front suspension. Nitto Mud Grappler tires are mounted on 17-inch Ford Racing beadlock wheels. While the tires give an*aggressive look*to the truck, they make a persistent roar on the highway. But considering most game playing will be done when the truck is parked, it will probably be a non-issue to the winner.As you’re reading this, the grand prize winner has already been determined, and most likely notified, so sorry, this fantasy truck is already taken. The top players have until February 28 to respond to a message on their Xbox to claim the prize.Read more:*http://wot.motortrend.com/2013-ford-...DBWSFIA*Follow us:*@MotorTrend on Twitter*|*MotortrendMag on Facebook
