Ken Block’s powerful pickup truck features 300,000 lumens of lightAugust 14, 2020
Racer Ken Block has decided to add extra lighting to his high-performance SVC F-150 Raptor pickup truck, which boasts 300,000 lumens of light output. The lighting was done by the guys from Rigid Industries. In the video, Block shows the differences between a pickup truck with normal lighting and optional lighting.
Probably everyone already knows who Ken Block and his Hoonigan Racing Division team are. The celebrity drifter and rally driver is known for his love of Ford vehicles, including the new Mustang Mach-E electric crossover.
In addition to various outlandish cars, Block has a white F-150 Raptor in his garage, which has undergone significant off-road changes thanks to the Californian tuner SVC.
But this seems to be lacking for the renowned racer, especially for night runs on country trails.
In doing so, Block worked with Rigid Industries to add a set of lighting fixtures to his already shining Raptor.
The total luminous intensity of all the auxiliary lights is 300,000 lumens – when he turns on the auxiliary lights, the standard LED lighting of the Block truck appears dim. For the uninitiated, lumens is a unit of measurement for the amount of visible light emitted by a source per unit of time.
As you can see in the video above, the 300,000 lumen brightness offers a significant advantage in terms of frontal road visibility, especially during high-speed driving at night. At a great distance, you can clearly see the obstacle if you have a bright set of lights installed.
For comparison: halogen lamps give 700 lumens in low beam, and when high beam is on, up to 1200 lumens.
The block showcased the differences between standard lighting and newly added fixtures from Rigid Industries. To test its effectiveness, Block also went on a night run, and the result was not long in coming.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote about watching Ken Block drift in a 1400-horsepower Ford Mustang Mach-E crossover. Famed racer Ken Block decided to test a 1400-horsepower version of the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossover. As always, there is a huge amount of tire smoke in the video.
