Truck Thursday: Ford Raptor camera car

Camera cars come in all shapes and sizes, as the requirements needed for a given shoot can be incredibly diverse. Car Camera Systems, which is based in Hawthorne, California, is prepared for a variety of shoots thanks to the awesome array of vehicles in its garage. The company boasts everything from ATVs and a KTM 950 up to a Porsche Cayenne Turbo and a Ferrari 360 Modena. One of the vehicles that caught our, however, is their Ford Raptor.

The film company has kept the car nearly stock, which is fine because this brutish off-roader sports a 6.2-liter V8 that’s good for 411 horses and 434 pound-feet of torque. Couple that mill with the Fox Racing gear underneath and the beefy BFGoodrich tires, and you have a stable film platform that can handle a variety of tough terrain. Camera Car Systems did add some parts though, because the Raptor now features a steel-reinforced roof and an external roll cage.

We might not have the budget to hire CCS for a Hooniverse shoot, but we can dream.
