2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: The Men That Make The Truck
May 04, 2011
This year, for the second year in a row, we honored the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor with an Inside Line Editors Most Wanted Award. And recently I had the privilege of handing off the trophy to the team of car guys that make Raptors for a living. These are the guys responsible for designing, engineering and marketing the coolest pickup truck of all time.
And they are, from left to right:
Hermann Salenbauch: Director, Advanced Product Creation and Special Vehicle Team
Jost Capito: Director, Global Performance Vehicles and Motorsport Business Development Just Me
Jamal Hameedi: SVT chief nameplate engineer
Doug Scott: Ford truck group marketing manager
Brian Bell: F-150 product marketing manager
Raj Sarkar: F-150 marketing manager
Marc Lapine: F-150 consumer marketing manager
It was a fun few hours. Over lunch we talked trucks, off road racing, Mustangs (mostly GT500 and Boss 302), motorcycles and burnouts. These guys love burnouts.
I congratulate them all on a job well done. And I look forward to their next masterpiece.
Scott Oldham, Editor in Chief
