The 2017 Ford GT is one of the only American exotic car offerings from an established, major automaker. Though such a title brings with it a fair amount of pressure, the 2017 Ford GT seems to come through in the clutch thanks to a combination of world-class performance and high-tech features.

Ford's previous supercar, also called the GT, was released in 2005 to high praise. Nonetheless, the 2017 model outperforms its predecessor by all accounts. It offers 647 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque while still being significantly lighter than comparable supercars from other makes like the Ferrari 488 GTB or the Lamborghini Aventador.

Interestingly, the 2017 Ford GT employs the same engine block as the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. By making use of a lowered "track" mode and a focus on performance in the car's design, such a fact is essentially irrelevant to its performance.
