Shelby Raptor Baja The Shelby Raptor Baja is an extreme off-roader with key enhancements to the truck’s suspension, power and styling. The most noticeable change to the newest generation Shelby Raptor Baja is its amazing suspension system. Developed with Fox Racing, the four-corner adjustable system includes reliable technologies that adapt to any terrain from smooth streets to rigorous off-road trails with a simple ‘no tool needed’ adjustment. The robust suspension system rides on high performance BFGoodrich KM2 35/12.50R18 tyres mounted to 18-inch alloy wheels. This super truck has a fully functional ram air hood decorated with Shelby lettering and striping.
A custom front bumper, rear bumper and chase rack surround the truck. It even features eight LED light configuration, as well as two spare tyres mounted on the truck bed, which facilitates easy replacement of tyres in case of any requirement while driving off-road. Metal rock sliders with automatic running boards flank the sides for an easy step after the three-inch lift. The Shelby Raptor Baja edition embroidered custom leather seats, floor-mats and console-badging make the interior distinctive. The dashboard features the important numbered CSM serial number plate with the number entered in the official Shelby Registry.
