Ford Motors has rolled out a special edition Lockheed Martin F-22-themed F-150 Raptor pickup truck, all in the name of charity.

Ford, a longtime sponsor of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), created the special edition model for a charity auction.

WATCH: 

The F-22 Raptor pickup will be auctioned off July 27 at the Gathering of Eagles fundraising event at the EAA Aviation Museum in Oshkosh, Wisc.

The modified pickup has a twin-turbo, Whipple intercooled, high-output EcoBoost engine. The pickup also has enhanced brakes, suspensions, sound and lighting.

EAA describes itself as, “a community of aviation enthusiasts who promote and support recreational flying.” It counts its membership as north of 200,000 people worldwide. The group has raised over $20 million for its programs, including $3 million through its partnership with Ford.

Proceeds from the charity auction will be used to support the EAA’s youth aviation programs, according to the group. Last year, the event raised $2.2 million for EAA programs.
