Video Find: Tanner Foust Hot-Laps Ford F-150 SVT Raptor on the Nurburgring

Last summer, we spoke with Top Gear host and racer Tanner Foust, who shared an interesting story with us during the interview: the time he raced around the Nürburgring in a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.

The Raptor isn’t available in Germany, and not surprisingly lots of heads turned once Foust arrived at the ‘Ring with the big, blue, SuperCrew truck. The video shows Foust and the Raptor towering over a sea of sports cars before attacking the challenging, 12.9-mile track. Overall, the Raptor looks completely out of place as it leans and howls through the corners and jumps over curbs.

Foust said one of his goals was to lap a Porsche, and he claims to have accomplished that goal. Additionally, he posted a lap time of about 9:48 and we have a good feeling that Raptor record will stand for a long time, if not forever.
