Final 2017 model year Ford F-150 snatches $157k for charity image

The usual 2017 model year Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab was retailing for at least $48,860 MSRP, but the last example of the 2017 MY fetched way more – like three times more.

During an event at the recent 46th annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction it was sold for the impressive figure of $157,000 – and we’re more than happy for the sum because all proceeds will benefit the JDRF global organization that fights type 1 diabetes. There was even a rather large donation of $50,000 made during the event – an anonymous offer that brought the total to $207,000 for the charity. Sam Pack, CEO of Sam Pack Five Star Ford of Carrollton, Texas, took home the example, and will be given the opportunity to select an exclusive color for his new one-of-one F-150 Raptor.

The high performance truck should a thrill to ride thanks to its biturbo 3.5-liter V6 engine offering 450 horsepower (335 kilowatts) and 510 pound-feet (691 Newton-meters) of torque. The power is sent to an AWD system via a ten-speed automatic transmission and it’s enough for a maximum payload capacity of 1,000 pounds (453 kilograms) for the SuperCab and 1,200 lbs (544 kg) if you want the SuperCrew.
