Current Base Price: $450,000
To celebration the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1966 victory at Le Mans, the new Ford GT ultra-high-performance supercar is a showcase for Ford’s application of race technology, use of lightweight materials, aerodynamics and EcoBoost power. The mid-engine 2-seat coupe has the most powerful production EcoBoost engine ever: a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 producing 647 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque, combined with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The sleek body incorporates active aerodynamics such as a deployable rear spoiler. and the Ford GT makes extensive use of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum. Even before the Ford GT went into production late in 2016, Ford returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans with a Ford GT race car based on the new Ford GT, winning the LMGTE Pro class 50 years after the first Ford GT win.
