This truck conversion gets its name from the mythological monster, Minotaur. But, this truck is no myth. It’s the real deal, with impressive off-road capabilities, high-speed highway performance, attention-getting style, and… it’s now avilable for order.
The Minotaur RAM® 1500 pickup truck is a substantial custom conversion offered from the Performance division of Michigan-based Prefix Corporation®. Prefix estimates only 200 Minotaurs will be produced in 2017. “It is a LOT of truck for the money and we like the idea of limited Production,” explains Prefix Director of Marketing, Jhan Dolphin. “Minotaur buyers enjoy knowing that they could easily be the only one in their town driving a Minotaur.”
During the past year, the Minotaur has been featured in magazines and on television globally. Additionally, Prefix’s demo trucks have attended many live events and toured the USA. Prefix even entered a V-10 powered race-version of the Minotaur (driven by veteran Baja Champ, Kent Kroeker) into the Baja 1000. Their Baja effort was filmed by ©Red Bull TV, for the “Driving Dirty – The Road to the Baja 1000” series.
Prefix Corporation operates multiple midwestern facilities, and since 1979 has become a single-source American manufacturing, prototype, and concept vehicle solution, with wide ranging ca-pabilities that support aviation, automotive, motion picture, and other industries. Their Performance division specializes in low-volume production niche vehicles like the Minotaur, as well as some pretty impressive engine development and performance modifications.
Although the Minotaur conversion was engineered from the same Baja racing heritage found in championship desert race trucks, it’s those same characteristics that make it ideal as a daily driver. This highly engineered suspension system improves the overall vehicle stance for greater handling and stability at high speeds on the street, yet provides impressive off-road capabilities. The aggressive stance of the vehicle is dramatically enhanced by the wide front and rear fenders. Going way beyond a simple lift-kit, Minotaur uses the race-proven KORE® Tactical Series suspension with custom designed FOX® 3” internal bypass racing shocks, providing the truck with a massive 14-inches of suspension travel. The 4-inches of lift gives the 35-inch all-terrain tires ample clearance and provides a remarkable approach angle of 41 degrees, and departure angle of 30 degrees. The aluminum skid-plate with red tow hooks and low profile front fascia with integrated fog lights, and side body graphics complete the vehicle’s aggressive appearance.
Prefix provides a tasteful list of optional features to allow buyers additional personalization, including performance upgrades like a supercharger and/or 6.4-liter 392 engine swap. The Prefix paint facility (which also paints every Dodge Viper in production) even offers an option of painting Minotaurs in any color custom color you can imagine.
