2020 Ford F-150 Venom 775 By Hennessey
Hennessey, a brand notorious for tuning Ford vehicles, has launched its latest take on the Ford F-150: The Hennessey Venom 775. Hennessey is known to give massive performance boosts to its vehicles and the 2020 Venom 775 is no exception either. 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.
2018 Ford F-22 F-150 Raptor
Ford Performance created a one-off F-150 Raptor styled after the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor fighter jet for a charity auction benefiting kids’ interest and participation in flying. Called the Gathering of Eagles, the annual event is hosted by the Experimental Aircraft Association. This year, the auction raised $300,000 thanks to Ford’s donation of the “F-22 Raptor.” The truck obviously takes its name and styling cues from America’s premier fighter, going so far as to incorporate the jet’s silhouette into its grille and side mirrors. But that just scratches the surface of what Ford did to this 2018 F-150 Raptor Crew Cab.
The Raptor boasts a Whipple intercooler and other performance upgrades on its high-output, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, giving it an impressive 545 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque – a healthy improvement over its stock 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of twist. The bodywork received carbon fiber fender flairs, custom LED lighting, power-deploying running boards, an aggressive wheel and tire package, and that silver-over-black paint job. These, combined with other upgrades, helped the truck garner a $300,000 winning bid, beating out last year’s winning bid of $295,000 for a P-51D Mustang-themed 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 called Ole Yeller. Making the winning bid more special – it was from Gary Ackerman of Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas. Ackerman serves as Honorary Commander and Ambassador for the U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Squadron at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada.

1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack – An ICON Reformer Project
Imagine having a vintage crew cab pickup with all the style and flair from a bygone era in design mixed with modern mechanicals and creature comforts, all capped with a outright obsessive level of detail crafted from the finest materials available. That’s exactly what we’re seeing here. This 1965 Ford F-250 Six-Pack is the newest member of ICON’s Reformer series of builds. Its outward appearance looks properly vintage, but its body hides a 5.9-liter Cummins turbodiesel and Dodge 3500 underpinnings.
ICON has made its quite a name for itself over the years building custom vehicles based on vintage iron. The scope ranges from the “Derelict” series that puts modern mechanicals under an almost untouched, original body with its beautiful patina still intact to high-end Bronco and FJ restorations that are far superior to their factory-fresh condition. The California-based independent company will field nearly any customer request, regardless of difficulty, so far as their bank account will allow. That is clearly on display with this 1965 Ford pickup. You’ll definitely want to see the details in our full review.

Do you want an 800-horsepower 2015 Ford Mustang by MMD and Chip Foose? Here’s your chance, as American Muscle is giving one away. To enter, just click here and fill out the entry form by August 3rd, 2015.
This MMD- and Foose-designed `Stang has all the goodies you need to make for one hell of a ride. On the outside, it has a front chin spoiler, a hood scoop, rocker panels, quarter-window louvers, a rear spoiler, and side scoops from MMD by Foose. Rolling stock and custom stripes are both provided by Foose.
Inside the cabin, there are custom doorsill plates and headrests created custom by MMD by Foose.
But the engine is where all the real excitement happens, as this Mustang GT features the Bama Supercharger Package, which includes a 2.9-liter Whipple blower. The supercharger combined with a Magnaflow Competition cat-back exhaust system pushs the V-8 to its 800 horses (over 650 horsepower at the wheels).
Sending the power to the rear differential is a carbon-fiber driveshaft, while axle half-shafts rated at 1,400 horsepower get the power to the wheels from there.
With power comes the need for control, and MMD by Foose is happy to oblige with Vogtland Sport lowering springs. According to the fine print, the approximate value of this badass Mustang is $70,000, so even if you don’t want the car, you can likely sell it for a hefty sum.
The typical rules apply: you must be 18 years or older, must be a resident of the U.S. or Canada, etc., etc. You can catch all of the official rules under the entry form at the above link. One neat twist to this sweepstakes is that American Muscle doesn’t limit you to just one entry. You may enter once per week.
