2017 Ford GT

With a top speed of 216 mph, the beautiful Ford GT is the fastest production Ford in history. This performance is achieved thanks to a twin-turbocharged 3.5 liter V6 producing 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque, and a relatively low weight of 3054 lbs.

Ford is limiting production to 250 cars annually, and has a rigorous screening process in place given the fact that so far there have been 13x as many applicants for the $450,000 car as there are available vehicles. You have to wonder if Ford didn't regret a higher production output than the 1000 cars planned over 4 years. Ford produced a little over 4000 of the first generation Ford GT in 2005-2006, though granted that car was a third the price.

One unusual quirk of the Ford GT is that the seats are stationary, and can't be moved back and forth. Instead, the driver moves the telescoping steering wheel, complete with 18 different controls that drivers would want quick access to, and adjustable pedals. Another interesting feature are the holes in center of the taillights, which vent air passing over the intercoolers.

Though this is its first production year, the Ford GT has already proven itself with a Le Mans win in 2016, 50 years after its historic 1-2-3 win at 1966.
