All of us who is Ken Block and his Hoonigan Racing Division team. The racer and rally driver, who has achieved celebrity status, is known for his love of Ford vehicles, including the new Mustang Mach-E. In fact, he got the chance to try out his amazing Mach-E 1400 version to do what he does best – burn tires.
Block is also known for his monstrous white F-150 Raptor which has undergone extensive modifications, courtesy of the California-based SVC off-road tuner. We’ve seen it in action before, and it’s all kinds of badass.
But that seems to be missing for Block, especially some night trails. With that, Block worked with Rigid Industries to add a slew of fixtures to their already beaming Raptor. The result? A hardcore F-150 Raptor ready to get dirty, day or night.
Equipped with 300,000 lumens of light, Block’s Ford Truck makes HID and LED lights dull. For the uninitiated, lumen is a unit of measure for the amount of visible light emitted by a source per unit of time.
As you can see from the on-board video on the top, 300,000 lumens of light give a significant advantage in terms of visibility, especially on high speed races. From a distance, you can see the obstacle clearly when you have installed a set of illuminated lights, which allows you to brake effectively.
In comparison, the halogen bulbs produce 700 lumens in low beam, while engaging the high beam will allow it to produce up to 1,200 lumens. Now do the math.
Block demonstrated the differences between a stock lamp, previously installed lamps and newly added fixtures from Rigid Industries. To test its effectiveness, Block also went for a night run, and it was epic. You can watch it all on the video at the top.
