A few people feel the best way to change a vehicle is with a Chevy motor especially an F-150 Raptor. But in all actuality, this isn’t your standard pre-sprinter even with Ford power. This is known as a Spitfire Luxury Pre-Runner by Jimco Racing.
The modified truck is the luxury version of the Ford Raptor 150. It is based on the Raptor chassis but built by Jimco under the name “Victory”, which has already been tested on other Jimco luxury pre-riders and hides a powerful 150 horsepower increase and some modifications that make it a luxurious pre-runner.
It adopts all the qualities of the original truck and amplifies the driving power with a Chevy V8 415 built by Danzio Performance, adding a turbocharger 400. To cap all the power Jimco racing trustee the transmission to a four-speed GM 4L80E automatic built by Gearworks.
The suspension is handled by a Fox Coilovers shock kit where the Spitfire Racing Luxury Pre-Runner uses a 40-inch BFGoodrich KR3 desert racing tire set. All of the modification results in 800 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque, making it a furious off-road racer.
Inside, Spitfire Racing Luxury Pre-Runner by Jimco Racing maintains the essence of off-road competition trucks, where drivers must be able to communicate with the co-pilot. For this reason, the absence of great sound equipment is not an option, although it does have one that is more than powerful – and colorful.
Spitfire Luxury Pre-Runner builds on this intrepid pre-runner idea, so the owner can’t really expect something super comfortable though some details like the bucket seats and dash are leather-lined with some diamond-stitched patterns.
It additionally includes impact safety systems and nets. Adding to the extravagance is the Momo leather-wrapped directing wheel, PCI radio with Kenwood head unit, and LEADNAV GPS.
On the outside, it looks more than rough with a Baja Designs LED light bar, improved MoTec and Wirefab wiring, and various accessories that make it look monstrous.
The truck is known to have been commissioned by one of the owners of the Los Angeles Dodgers team in the American Major League Baseball, and the approximate cost figure for the upgrade is about $ 600,000. So if you want one, you had better bring your wallet full.
