The virtual world has just collided with reality - with Ford unveiling its F-150 Rocket League Edition. This Raptor variant (which is based upon the popular video game, in which demolition derby combines with soccer) recently debuted at the Chicago Auto Show; and fans were stunned to see a digital-inspired masterpiece rev onto the stage.


According to Car and Driver, this 2021 F-150 is an exclusive collaboration between Ford and the creators of Rocket League, bringing the in-game F-Series design to the real world; and it’s yielded a striking result. The Raptor body proves rugged, accentuated with thick arches and drop-down windows; while a revised grille anchors the front, offering a custom emblem. The profile is highlighted in bright green, and C-shaped tail-lamps flank the rear gate.

Most impressive is the use of (fake) rocket launchers - which are mounted in the bed and perfectly harken to the game’s unusual premise. This is the ultimate pick-up for tech fans.

Alas, it’s not going to become a highway staple. Car and Driver reports that Ford intends this ride to be used purely for promotional purposes - disappointing critics and gamers alike.
