Instead of the initial plan to drift his Mustang around the Nurburgring, Vaughn Gittin Jr. decided to make things more interesting by taking the new Ford F-150 Raptor on a hot lap, completely sideways.

The Raptor houses a new 3.5-litre V6 EcoBoost engine kicking out a respectable 450 hp with 691 Nm of torque, paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Locally, Sime Darby Auto Connexion, distributor of Ford vehicles in Malaysia, has already announced that the new and tamer Ford Ranger Raptor will be arriving soon.

It will also adopt a 10-speed automatic gearbox but is instead combined with a 2.0-litre bi-turbo diesel engine. Output is said to be in the region of 213 hp with 500 Nm of torque.
