Strongside, winner of this one of a kind prize is selling it. Wow, I don’t know what to say. I guess he’s hard up for cash. Otherwise, no way I’d give up something like this, had I won it.

In the world of video games, one vehicle stands out as one of the most rugged and capable: the Warthog from the Halo series. It can traverse rocky alien planets, endure gut-wrenching drops and plow through paths of alien scum all in a day’s work. Unfortunately for us not in virtual reality, we will never know what it feels like to drive the Warthog off of a cliff in the middle of a firefight, but one of our latest listings will get you as close as humanly possible.
The Ford Raptor recently listed on duPont REGISTRY was the grand prize for the Halo 4 Infinity Challenge tournament held in 2012 and 2013. The truck is being listed by Michael Cavanaugh (AKA StrongSide) who came in first place during the global Halo 4 tournament after the grand finals in Jan. 2013. Cavanaugh has kept the truck in his garage, only adding 226 miles to the odometer. He says that he treats it as a trophy and a reminder of his success in the gaming world, making it, quite literally, a trophy truck.
The Halo Ford Raptor was crafted by none other than Galpin Auto Sports, who is known for making some of the most unique vehicles on the road. Indeed, it is a one-of-a-kind machine on this, or any other, planet. The exterior is covered with a finish designed to match the famous Warthog, with United Nations Space Command (UNSC) logos from the Halo series on the sides and bed cover. Some more exterior eye-catchers are the 17″ Ford Racing beadlock wheels wrapped with 35×12.5 R17 Nitto Mud Grapplers.
Inside this truck is where the theme of the car is really brought out. Custom “Halo” upholstery covers the seats, matching the exterior perfectly. More importantly, there are four TVs found throughout the truck. There is one TV on the dashboard, one that drops down from the ceiling and two found on the headrests of the passenger and driver seats. Connected to each of these TVs is an Xbox 360, making it perfect for road trips. Cavanaugh said he and his friends would spend some nights just sitting in the truck, playing video games. If you are looking for the perfect road trip truck, there is no better option out there.
Of course, being a Ford Raptor, it can handle just about anything you throw at it. With 11″ of wheel travel and a Whipple supercharger attached to the 550hp, up from the stock 411 hp, 6.2-liter V8 engine, this truck is an off-road monster.
So, now is your chance to own this one-of-a-kind Halo Ford Raptor. It’s perfect for someone looking for an off-road and road trip-worthy vehicle. Just imagine playing the upcoming Titanfall video game while you wait for your friends driving their Call of Duty Jeeps.
Should you want to buy this…(heh, yeah right…that $200,000 price tag isn’t going to move this fast. I wonder what the best offer will be), you can go to this link. More pics of this cool one-of-a-kind vehicle at that link!
Amazing enough, it only has 226 miles on it.
Hmm, now where did I leave that spare $200K lying about? LOL
