Fallout 4 and Forza Motorsport 6 are teaming up to bring players two cars inspired by the upcoming, post-apocalyptic video game. They're starting with a rusted 1956 Ford F100, but the next one is much more fanciful.

This highly customized 1969 Ford F-100 completely rejects originality in favor of making big power. Under the hood is a highly tuned LSA supercharged V8 pumping out a claimed 800 horsepower, and to make all that muscle more usable, it's running disc brakes and independent suspension at all four corners.

Ford, along with KISS bassist Gene Simmons and his wife, Shannon Tweed, used SEMA as a backdrop to pull the covers off Snakebit, a 1956 Ford F-100 pickup truck that's been updated with Shelby Mustang-derived styling bits and a 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine.

We've been begging for better small trucks from automakers for some time now, and it looks like Ford may have an answer for us. Pickuptrucks.com reports that Ford may revive the F-100 name on a new mid-size truck built on a modified version of the future F-150's platform. Rumored to be a little less than 9/10th the size of the F-150, the F-100 would also feature extensive use of aluminum to save even more weight.
