Super truck at super
ONE of the UK's leading specialist and luxury car dealers has added two remarkable US vehicles to its stock.
One is the first right-hand-drive conversion of the Ford F-150 Raptor "super truck" and the other is the first example of the 2018 Lincoln Navigator to arrive in the UK.
The Clve Sutton dealership, based in central London, was the first to offer the F-150 Raptor to the UK market in left-hand-drive guise early last year, and it has now completed the first full conversion to right-hand drive.
The price for the converted right-hand drive F-150 Raptor is £89,000 plus VAT for business buyers or £106,800 including VAT for private buyers.
Sutton's team worked for six months to develop a right-hand drive steering rack for the new Raptor, which is an upgraded version of the system in the standard F-150, and carried out extensive recalibration.
The completed right-hand drive F-150 Raptor is a SuperCab model in Lightning Blue, with rear-hinged coach doors that open to reveal a pillarless cabin aperture.
The pick-up is equipped with Ford's Sync 3 infotainment system, and has been reprogrammed as part of the conversion with full European navigation and radio frequencies.
The other significant new arrival is the first 2018 Lincoln Navigator brought to the UK.
The all-new model is a roomy seven-seater SUV powered by a 3.5-litre 450bhp V6 petrol engine and it is packed with high-grade features, including PowerFold captain's chairs for the second row, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and a hands-free power tailgate.
It is priced at £114,950 including VAT.
