The Ford GT

The Ford GTThe world's 11th fastest production car, the Ford GT was built by the Ford Motor Company from 2003 to 2006.
The Ford GT is powered by an all-aluminum 5.4L Modular V8 powerplant with a Lysholm twin screw-type supercharger.
The engine puts out 550 horsepower and 500 foot-pounds of torque.
This allows the Ford GT to run 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds and 0-100 in 7.4 seconds.
It also gives the Ford GT an 11.2 second quarter mile time at 131.2 mph.
Because it's electronically limited, the top speed is 212 mph.
And for a 200 mph + car, the fuel economy isnt all that bad, 12 mpg city and 19 mpg highway.
When they were new, they were going for around 120,000 dollars. But since production has stopped, you can probably expect that figure to go up.
