Ford is not the first automotive company to target a vehicle towards the video gamer. That privilege belongs to Jeep with their Call of Duty versions of the Wrangler. However, in a partnership with the Halo 4 launch, modifier Galpin Auto Sports has created a custom Hal0 4 Edition SVT Raptor that definitely looks like something the Master Chief would drive when he’s not on the battlefield!
Ford took the opportunity to show it off at this year’s Woodward Dream Cruise.
Not much has changed on the exterior, but the vehicle has been completely wrapped in vinyl and features a matte green finish. Also, the vehicle has Halo branding and the United Nations Space Command emblem.
This version looks slightly different from the Galpin Auto Sports official version, so it is unclear if it contains the 500hp supercharged engine or the incredible infotainment system, but this truck definitely looks the part.
Our sister site GottaBeMobile.com reviewed the regular Raptor not too long ago. While it is extremely unlikely that Ford will offer a Halo edition of the Raptor to the general public (though the Jeeps seem to sell well) we do like the matte green and black paint scheme, and find it attractive in person the same way that the Terrain color is also attractive in person.
While not likely to survive a rocket attack, the Raptor is used by the United States Border Patrol chase down criminals, and also by TVNWeather.com (covered in impact-resistent LineX coating) to drive into tornadoes. It definitely has the credentials to be shuttling some United Nation Marines around Woodward Avenue, or any other planet.
