RHD Conversion Option Lets Brits Enjoy the Raptor

Moving the steering wheel to the other side of the car isn’t cheap, though.

The Ford F-150 Raptor is a huge hit in the U.S. and it’s easy to see why. Very few vehicles on the market have the same off-roading capabilities as the iconic truck and its affordable price makes it a highly desirable pickup. Now, thanks to an optional conversion kit from the Sutton Bespoke program, drivers in Britain can enjoy driving the incredible truck from the wrong side of the vehicle.

Sutton Bespoke, a personal program that offers Britons personal upgrades for their vehicles, is now offering a right-hand-drive conversion kit for the Raptor. The conversion costs approximately $45,021 (£36,000 British Pounds), which isn’t exactly cheap. But for British drivers that don’t want to deal with the hassle of sitting on the left side of the car, it’s one of the few options they have.

Adding the RHD kit to a Raptor brings the price for the pickup up to roughly $142,569 (£114,000 British Pounds) or a little more than a Mercedes-AMG GT. So, only a few drivers will be able to afford to purchase a truck and then getting the steering wheel moved to the other side of the vehicle.

Those that can afford to get the conversion, though, are in for a treat, as the Raptor is nearly identical to the one sold in the U.S. The beast is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that generates 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft. of torque. And for those that think they need more performance, Sutton Bespoke also offers a performance kit that increases power to over 590 horses.
