The crew at Geiger Cars has prepared for us a very special surprise – it has made a stunning refinement for one of the most aggressive vehicles currently on the road – the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. The first striking thing in this vehicle is its poison green exterior color, which was achieved by via foil wrapping.

Underneath the hood however, lies the true power of this Beast Edition – the inherent for the Raptor 6.2 -liter engine which was enhanced via high-tech tuning and now produces 572 hp (421 kW) and 712 Nm of torque, in comparison to the production 417 hp and 590 Nm.

There is a saying in the Dakar racing circles that goes like this; “To Finish is to Win!” Does it sound cliché? Maybe. But, if you’ve ever competed in the Dakar Rally, or any race for that matter, you know there is no checkered flag for those who don’t finish. It doesn’t matter how fast you went on day #1, or how many cars you passed in day #2, or how quickly your support crew repaired your car on day #3. If you wreck the car or can’t complete on day #10, any hopes of a podium finish, or any finish, will elude the best intentions. Dakar is truly a game of survival of not the fastest, but the fittest. One where the attrition rate is high, and the stakes are higher. If you consider the 430 adrenalin-charged souls who began this marathon of abuse two weeks ago, checkered flags and un-corked bottles of Champaign swirling around in their heads, less than half will be starting tomorrow’s stage. Those who do, who have survived and are still standing, will be heading for the checkered flag in Buenos Aires tomorrow night.
