Who better to smoke a set of tires on a Ford F-150 Raptor than the hoonigan himself, Ken Block? A professional rally driver, Ken Block has been a long time spokesman for Ford Motor Company and it comes as no surprise when his personal vehicle turns out to be a 2017 Ford F150 Raptor.
In a video uploaded to YouTube last month, Block talks about taking delivery of his new F-150 Raptor and his plans to take it on a 1000 mile trip with his family. Of course, any new vehicle of his deserves to be christened with an unreasonably long burnout and plenty of smoke.
Of course, there’s the usual short review of the Ford F150 Raptor prior to the burnout. Block praises the Raptor’s 3.5L EcoBoost engine and performance capabilities along with the pickup’s fit and finish. He has also jumped quite a few of them for other people, probably not so much in his own.
Then he thanks his tire sponsor Toyo, as their support is what allows him to wear out a brand new set of tires, before proceeding with a 51 second burnout. This one could claim the title of the most epic burnout of a new Raptor because not many people can afford to go through a set of expensive tires like him. Unsurprisingly, his wife remains unfazed in the aftermath and his kids were all riled up.
