Video: 300 Thousand Lumens: Ken Block Built A Truly Dazzling Pickup
The famous American extreme sports car driver and creator of Gymkhana Ken Block presented on his YouTube channel the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup with a “chandelier” that creates a luminous flux of more than 300 thousand lumens. And he went on it into the night desert.
- The luminous flux of a 100W household incandescent lamp is slightly over 1000 lumens. The same amount of light is given out by the automotive halogen high-beam lamp. Thus, the new side lighting of Ken Block's pickup truck is 300 times brighter than the headlights of a conventional car.
- The floodlight was built by Rigid Industries. LED elements are located under and above the front bumper, in three “floors” on the roof, an additional strip is installed on the bonnet, and several more components are integrated into the bumper under the head optics.
- According to the calculations of the Block's team, the standard pickup optics provide the range of the light beam a little more than 30 meters, and all additional lighting increases this indicator by about three or four times (excluding the width of the beam itself).
Illuminating his way only with stock headlights, the racer drove a test distance along the night off-road in one and a half minutes. Connecting the entire light arsenal allowed him to improve the result by 14 seconds.
