Ford F-150 Intrepid Supertruck by Mil-Spec
Mil-Spec Automotive is known to turn civilian Hummers to monstrous beasts. But the company has worked on trucks as well, especially the Ford F-150. This time, the company again laid its hands on the world’s best-selling truck to give it a twist of its own. The last time the company played around with one, it gave the truck steroids and bumped up the power figures to 500 horses. This time, the Michigan-based company upped the ante and tuned the truck to make 675 ponies! Called the Intrepid F-150 Supertruck, there are a whole lot of other changes that make this Ford F-150 one-of-a-kind.
Want More Power and Better Handling? Try the Mustang Shelby GT350SE or GT500SE
A while back, Shelby introduced the Carroll Shelby Signature Edition package for the Ford Mustang. The bundle turned the regular Mustang GT into a more aggressive pony design-wise and replaced the standard V-8 with a supercharged unit capable of 825 horsepower. Now, Shelby is extending the Signature Edition to the GT350 and GT500 models. These new packages are much thinner on the performance front, but they’re also notably more affordable. The Signature Edition is available on the 2020 Shelby GT500 and 2015-to-2020 Shelby GT350 models, including the GT350R. Like all Shelby conversions, every Signature Edition car will receive a Shelby CSM number and will be documented in the official Shelby American Registry.
Sad the 2021 Ford Bronco Isn’t Offered With a V-8? PaxPower Has Your Back!
Ford is not offering the 2021 Bronco with a V-8 and it is stinging some people. The fact that Jeep announced a V-8 Wrangler just before the Bronco’s launch added to the misery. We expected aftermarket companies to pounce on this opportunity, but this soon? Houston-based PaxPower has already announced a V-8 Bronco. The tuner will plonk Ford’s V-8 Coyote engine and offer it in two iterations - 400 horses and 758 horses. Exciting enough?

There isn’t a lot known about it yet, but from the looks of it, it seems pretty sweet.
Ford Everest by TTN Hypersport - the Ford F-150 Raptor SUV That Should Have Been
Aftermarket companies are the guilty pleasure of any customization aficionado. Whether it is a power boost or an aesthetic upgrade, these companies do the most unthinkable things and sometimes make us wonder how good the product would be as a factory-made model.
The latest example of this is a build by TTN Hypersport, a custom shop in Thailand. TTN has dared to rebuild the Ford Everest into a wild vehicle that essentially looks like an F-150 Raptor SUV. Ford, can we expect something like this in the future?
2020 Ford GT "Le MANSORY"
Mansory has belatedly pulled the covers off of its latest masterpiece, the Ford GT “Le Mansory.” Initially scheduled to be revealed at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show, the Le Mansory is the product of everything the German tuner stands for.
Modifications abound inside and outside of the Ford GT. It’s hard to expect anything less from Mansory, but this is no ordinary project for the tuner. The GT Le Mansory is limited to just three units, making it one of the rarest projects Mansory has ever created. Are you not intrigued?
Carlex Design Has Made the Ford Ranger Look Way Tougher Than It Really Is
Ford Ranger is a capable truck and sells in decent numbers. It is also quite popular amongst aftermarket companies that give it their own twists and tweaks inside-out. The latest iteration of the pickup truck comes from Carlex Design.
The company’s European arm laid its hands on the Raptor and made it look a lot tougher than it actually is. The images were uploaded on the company’s Facebook page and you can see how the calm, sedate-looking truck is transformed to look like a beast. A few changes are made to the cabin as well, but the mechanicals have been left untouched. Do you like it?

Mil-Spec has made cosmetic upgrades on the outside, some plush changes on the inside, and a whole lot of changes to the mechanicals and drivetrain of the truck. From our initial impressions, this is one of the better modded-F-150s we’ve seen in recent times.
Another Day, Another Conversion Kit For The Ford Ranger
It looks like the Ford Ranger is every tuner’s favorite guinea pig these days. We recently saw APG come up with a conversion kit for the pickup truck, and now there’s a German aftermarket company known as Delta 4x4 creating a kit for the Euro-spec Ranger too.
The kit makes the Ranger more off-road capable, thanks to new lighting, tires, and suspension. It’s still no Raptor by any means since there are no changes made under the hood whatsoever. But it still looks smashing and will please folks who are into mild off-roading.
2020 Ford Ranger Prorunner By APG
Ford is denying us the pleasure of owning a Ranger Raptor in the U.S., but aftermarket companies are cashing in on this opportunity. One such company is South California-based aftermarket tuner Automotive Performance Group, who’s offering a conversion package for the Ranger that may not make it a Raptor, but surely fills the void to a certain extent.
Called the Prorunner Series 1 Package, it comes with a new body kit, carbon fiber fenders, axle shafts, and a lot more stuff. With this package equipped, you can finally take your Ranger to bash the dunes, or through treacherous paths that were close to impossible to tackle with the stock Ranger.

Transformed inside and out, the Venom 775 is also a super-quick beast, thanks to all the mods made under the hood. The company has limited the production of the Venom 775 to just 100 examples, though, so if you want one, you need to move quick.
2020 Ford F-250 Harley-Davidson by Tuscany
Tuscany Motor Company is not a new name in the aftermarket and performance equipment arena. The company has worked on the Ford Mustang and F-Series in the past, and now, it has tied up with Harley-Davidson to roll out some lip-smacking editions of these famous trucks.
Although one would’ve assumed the Ford trucks to get beautified, the collaboration surprisingly included the GMC Sierra in the mix as well. Tuscany also added the F-250 to the existing lineup of F-150 and GMC Sierra, and from the looks of it, it can be said that the best was saved for last.
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Twin-Turbo by Fathouse
The Ford Mustang is no stranger to getting worked over by tuning companies, and the Shelby GT350 is a personal favorite thanks to the tunability of its naturally aspirated, 5.2-liter, “Voodoo” V-8. At 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque, it’s pretty powerful, but there’s always room for more. And, that’s precisely why we’re looking at this Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 that has been impressively tuned by Fathouse Fabrications in Martinsville, Indiana.
2020 Ford F-150 by TCCustoms
