Throughout his extraordinary life, Ken Block had some absolutely bonkers vehicles. From his Gymkhana monsters, to his rally cars, to his tuned classics, Block seemingly never owned a boring ride. However, what is potentially the most ludicrous of all his cars is now up for sale and it can be yours if you're brave enough—his 2009 Ford F-150 RaptorTRAX.

As you can probably see, Block's F-150 RaptorTRAX is no ordinary Raptor. (Hat tip to Jalopnik for the find.) Rather than wheels, it uses Mattracks 105M1-A1 truck tracks that make it pretty much unstoppable on any sort of terrain. Block had this truck built for snowy mountains, though, and watching it tear through powder is always amazing to see. Rather than waiting for ski lifts, Block would use the RaptorTRAX to bring his friends and gear to the tops of mountains far quicker. Sitting in the bed, strapped into two Recaro bucket seats underneath a roll cage, while Block tore through snowy mountains must have been equal parts hilarious and horrifying.

If you don't want to use the tracks, though, they can be taken off and the included Fifteen52 wheels can be swapped on, wearing Toyo Open Country tires. The rims are painted in the same shade of blue as the tracks, so everything matches.

The RaptorTRAX isn't just a Raptor with tracks on it, though. It has King remote-reservoir shocks, upgraded upper and lower control arms, skid plates, and a suite of off-road gear like LED light bars and recovery equipment. This pickup actually left the factory as a 2009 Ford F-150 SuperCab, but Block punched up its appearance to match the 2013 Raptor.

Since this truck was used and used well, it isn't perfect. It's been maintained well and everything is said to work as it should, but there are blemishes and imperfections, especially on the wheels. That's because Block built the RaptorTRAX to tackle the gnarliest of conditions, and that's exactly what it did. The only real potential issue with the car is a mileage discrepancy, but I have a feeling that very few potential buyers will be put off by that.

Block was and still is a beloved figure in the automotive world, which makes owning a car from his incredible collection something many car enthusiasts can't pass up. However, there are few cars as Ken Block as this F-150 RaptorTRAX. If you want one of the coolest pieces of Block's automotive history, it'll cost you $195,000 but, for many, that's probably well worth it.
