How Not to Jump a Ford Raptor

By -


I present you with a Ford SVT Raptor that you have likely seen before. Videos of this very F-150 Raptor first surfaced a couple years back, showing an SVT pickup flying through the air and slamming down hard – doing significant damage to the truck in the process. While I have seen a few different camera angles of the ill-fated flight of the black Raptor, I have never seen the video below.

In the video, the driver of the F-150 Raptor makes a few test runs, much to the displeasure of the impatient crowd. After a few practice runs up to the jump, the Raptor driver has seemingly figured out the required approach speed for success. Or Not.

When the Raptor hits the jump at speed, the truck flies way past the landing ramp, slamming down into the dirt and doing massive damage to the truck. I have also included a video shot from off in the distance, better showing the carnage for those who haven’t seen it before.
