Ford Officially Rules Detroit With The New Raptor, Shelby GT350R and GT Supercar

It's called dominating your home turf.

As hard as it may be to believe, Ford decided only about a year ago to build a new GT. It’s incredible how fast it went from a dream to reality. And it looks absolutely perfect, a proud and true modern day, future icon. It’s really hard not to fall in love with it. If you thought the 2004-2006 GT defined supercar greatness, just wait because word has it that Ford is sending it to Le Mans. We also knew that the Shelby GT350R would have its feature debut, and clearly didn’t disappoint.

This is basically Ford’s answer to the Camaro Z/28 and it’s an absolute beast. A flat-plane crank V8 with more than 500 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, plus carbon-fiber wheels. It is love. And then there’s the new 2017 F-150 Raptor. Holy shitballs, indeed. This sucker weighs 500 pounds less and is more powerful than the current truck. A twin-turbo V6 paired to a 10-speed slushbox? Hey, whatever makes it goes fast through piles of incoming zombies. All three new Fords make one thing absolutely clear though: Detroit 2015 belongs to the Blue Oval.
