Back in August, we told you about the awesome Ram 1500 Minotaur from Prefix Corporation. The core of their business is primarily high-profile concept vehicles and prototypes for the automotive and aerospace industries. With its long history with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Prefix struck a deal to build the special low-volume production performance off-roader which was based on the Ram 1500 Sport model. The truck jumped into a unique niche only held by the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.
The Ram 1500 Minotaur, offered an excellent off-road package on the beloved Ram 1500 (DS) platform trucks. Prefix equipped the Minotaur with a KORE Tactical Suspension with 14-inches of suspension travel, 3-inch FOX internal bypass shocks, widebody high-impact fenders, side-exit performance exhaust, aluminum skid plates, unique sports bar, 18-inch off-road wheels, and 35-inch off-road all-terrain tires. Those options alone would rattle the knees of any F-150 Raptor owner. With a price of $59,995 USD, the Minotaur was also a fantastic deal.
Prefix didn’t stop there. The Prefix team would allow customers to choose if they wanted to spend a little extra money and customize their Minotaur in any custom color they want (this comes from the same company that painted all the 5th generation Dodge Vipers and all of the current Ford GT supercars) and allow the customer to choose from three engines. Standard was the legendary 5.7-liter HEMI V8, a 6.4-liter HEMI (392) SRT V8 or a supercharged version of the 6.4-liter HEMI (392) SRT V8.
When Ram decided to end production of the Ram 1500 (DS) Sport model after 2018, Prefix ended the Minotaur program. They will still build the package for individual customers who wish to take their Ram 1500 (DS) and equip it with the Minotaur package. However, it won’t be as cheap as what the original package was. But now the company is auctioning off one of their most popular Minotaur show trucks on eBay!
This particular truck is equipped with the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger a top. Painted in “Tequila Lime” custom paint, this truck is sure to get attention. Prefix put over $100,000 into this particular truck and are asking for USD 63,500. That’s a fantastic deal, considering the standard 5.7-liter powered models were only $3,505 cheaper.
So if you can’t wait for Ram Trucks to deliver a Ram 1500 TRX model to your driveway, this might be your best chance at getting a Supercharged HEMI off-roader from the factory for a while. To see the eBay! listing, CLICK HERE.
UPDATE: We were contacted by Prefix Corporation this morning to be made aware that the eBay listing for the Ram 1500 Minotaur was pulled, since someone “accidentally” clicked the Buy It Now feature on the site and hit cancel soon after. When the Buy It Now feature is hit on eBay the auction is immediately closed. Since then the truck has been reposted and we have updated the link. We will warn you, that is special Ram 1500 Minotaur is a 4×2 model “Pre-Runner”, the only Minotaur truck to be equipped that which makes it even more rare. Sorry 4×4 guys, this truck is made to be a true Baja-blazer.
