This F-150 Lightning SuperTruck is designed to significantly impact the 2024 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, where it aims to achieve unprecedented speeds and downforce.

The F-150 Lightning SuperTruck is engineered to generate an astonishing 6,000 pounds of downforce at 150 mph. This incredible aerodynamic capability is essential for maintaining stability and speed on the challenging Pikes Peak course.

These images reveal a SuperTruck that bears little resemblance to the stock F-150 Lightning. The SuperTruck features extensive body modifications, including massive front and rear wings and a prominent rear diffuser. These enhancements are all focused on maximizing downforce and performance.

The SuperTruck is distinct from the high-performance F-150 Lightning concept that Ford announced in February 2023. While details on that concept remain scarce, it lacks the SuperTruck’s prominent front wing, highlighting the unique design and purpose of the SuperTruck.

Drawing inspiration from Ford's successful Supervan series in the U.K., the F-150 Lightning SuperTruck is poised to set new standards in electric truck performance. The Supervan 4.2, a modified E-Transit Custom, made headlines by setting an Open Class record at the 2023 Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a time of 8:47.682, driven by the renowned Romain Dumas.

Dumas, who holds the overall record at Pikes Peak with a blistering 7:57.148 set in the Volkswagen ID.R, will pilot the SuperTruck in the 2024 event. His involvement is a significant advantage for Ford, as his expertise and experience at Pikes Peak are unparalleled.

The F-150 Lightning SuperTruck, which will bear the number 150, is set to compete on June 23. With its innovative design and the pedigree of its driver, the SuperTruck is not just in it to compete but to dominate and set new benchmarks in the world of electric racing.
