2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: No Raptor Parking in Beverly Hills

November 01, 2010

The only thing worse than trying to park in Beverly HIlls is when your lazy butler forgets to wash your sock garters and they're still covered with schmutz! But if you're in a 2010 Ford Raptor, it's even harder.

Embiggen the image and you'll see that the lower garage has a height limit of 6'6". Well, that's not going to work. The Raptor is listed at 6'6" but the antenna scrapes on 7' ceilings and, well, even if you do bend the radio thing, 6'6" is not enough clearance on a 6'6" truck. Whatever, the upper garage has a clearance of 8'2" that'll work.

Except that it has a 5,000-lb weight rating. The Raptor weighs 6,080 without passengers. D'oh!
