This is not your reg. F150, no waayyyyy.....
Best time I have seen for it was 5.5 0-60 and 14.0 1/4 thats really really quick for a 4600 lb. truck. And after driving two of them I have no reason to doubt any of those test numbers. So be careful if you dont get a good start you'll have a nice view of its tail-gate.
Had one of them up to 125mph and It was rock solid. Its power is not what really impresses me about this truck (360hp and 440 ft-lbs) just about anything can be made with more power. What really impressed me about this truck is how the guys at SVE made it handle so well. Its not an M3 but for a truck to pull .86+ g's, stop 60-0 in 137 feet, go 143mph... and still tow 5000+ lbs... now thats what impresses me most about this beast. It did have a LOT of understeer but it still went like hell around corners without breaking the rear-end loose as much as I though it would.

If anyone is looking for a tow/toy or toy-tower vehicle then I would suggest test driving one, and even if you dont need another car, go talk some talk and take a test drive, you WILL be impressed, as long as you look at it as a truck not a sports carů
