Have you been eyeing the all-new, 2017 Ford Raptor and thought to yourself, “Yes, but I just can’t wait for the 2017 model year?” Fear not, Ford fans, as Ford has made available the 2017 Raptor for early purchase. That’s right, you can have a new Raptor on your desk today!

Wait. Desk?

That’s right, you can’t go out and purchase a new, fully-operational Raptor yet, but you can purchase a highly detailed, 3D printed model of the truck. That’s right, Ford has printed some of these bad boys out and are making them available for sale.

Available as single color PLA plastic, you could paint the truck any color you want. You could even try to color match the Performance Blue that we’re not going to get!

If you already have a 3D printer, you can purchase the file necessary to print it yourself for $4.99. Kudos to whoever prints the first Raptor out of milk chocolate. Hey, that gives me an idea!

Ford is actually making a number of its performance vehicles available as 3D models, either pre-printed or printed already, on their new 3D store. They even have a Ford GT that will be fully finished, and especially limited, for sale starting the 15th.

But if a 3D printed truck isn’t your thing, you can also purchase the 3D models to use in programs like 3D Studio Max. Now, all you need is a 3D model of yourself, and you can make a video of yourself driving the new Raptor before anyone else on the planet!

Let us know your thoughts over in the forums!
