2021 Ford GT40 Electric by Superformance and Everrati
Founded in 2019 by Justin Lunny, Everrati as a company specializes in converting iconic vintage cars into electric cars. It is riding the wave of the current EV revolution where people certainly want to go electric, but at the same time don’t want to give up on some of the most timeless shapes from Automotive history. Everrati and countless other startups are addressing this demand for Resto-modding.
With the latest project, the company wants to work on one of the most iconic cars in Motor Racing, the Ford GT40, or more accurately, a perfect replica of the original. Drivers like Bruce McLaren who raced the Ford GT40 car back in the day, ought to wonder what has happened to their beloved eight-cylinder racer in 2021.
From deep within the bowels of Hennessey comes a very unexpected project that involves a 2021 Ford Mustang, the black and white color scheme of the Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 of 1966, and 808 horsepower of full-on, all-American muscle. Okay, maybe I’m over-selling it a little bit, as it is essentially just a rehash of Hennessey’s Heritage Edition from 2018 with a different color. But hey, this is Top Speed, and we love go-fast cars – this Mustang is certainly that, and I want to tell you a little more about it.
2021 Shelby F-150
Given the growing popularity of expensive trucks, Shelby has come with an F-150 iteration of its own. It comes with changes inside and out, and also under the hood. The Shelby F-150 now makes close to 800 horses! It also comes with an upgraded suspension setup. If you are disappointed the standard F-150 Raptor didn’t come with a power boost for the 2021 model year and you don’t want to wait for the Raptor R, this will float your boat. The only catch is that it has breached into the six-digit price bracket.
2022 Ford Maverick - A New Compact Truck Aimed At The Hyundai Santa Cruz
Ford has come up with a new compact pickup truck called the Maverick. The Maverick was leaked and spotted multiple times in the past. Ford teased in last week and gave us a glimpse of what to expect. Now, the truck is finally out. The Maverick will serve as the entry-level truck in Ford’s lineup and will slot below the Ranger. It will be offered with two different engine options, including a hybrid, with front-wheel-drive configuration as standard and an all-wheel-drive system as optional. The best part, however, is its price. The 2022 Ford Maverick is launched with a starting price of $19,995. Not bad, huh?
2021 Ford Ranger Raptor Special Edition - Is It Really That Bad Ass?
Riding high on the success of the Ranger in Europe, Ford launched a special edition of the truck based on the Ranger Raptor. Called the Ranger Raptor Special Edition (no marks for creativity there), the truck comes with aesthetic upgrades and wide tracks. It rides on the same drivetrain without any power bumps. The automaker is pushing it as a ‘badass’ edition of the truck. But, what’s so badass about it?
2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Pro
Ford launched theF-150 Lightning EV last week and it mostly drew positive responses. The talking point was the sub-$40,000 price for the commercial variant, which would result in being cheaper than the standard F-150 after factoring in the federal tax credits and state incentives. The automaker had not revealed the specs for it then, but we do have them.
The company has coined this commercial trim as the F-150 Lightning Pro. As a sub-$40,000 EV, it looks alright on paper. But, look at it as a work truck – which it is – and you will be disappointed.
2021 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 By Hennessey Performance
The latest car to undergo the Hennessey transformation is the 2020 Ford Shelby Mustang GT500. The tuner has equipped its famed HPE1000 package in this car and it now makes 1,000 horses. The changes on the outside and inside are subtle, but massive under the hood. We’re yet to hear about the official 0-60 mph time and the top speed, but it will certainly outperform the standard GT500.
2021 Ford F-150 Midnite Edition by Maxlider Motors
Illinois-based Maxlider Motors is famous for creating custom Broncos. This includes proper conversions as well as restorations. The company rolls out almost 100 Bronco every year out of the factory and seems to be on the verge of expanding its horizon now. Maxlider Motors has developed a Midnite Edition for the 2021 Ford F-150. It includes new shoes, suspension upgrades, and the likes. But, surprisingly, the aftermarket company left the engine untouched. From the looks of it, the package looks swell. Care to buy it?
2021 Shelby Super Snake Speedster
To celebrate Carrol Shelby’s birthday, Shelby American has rolled out the limited-production Super Snake Speedster edition based on the 2021 Mustang. It draws power from the Coyote V-8 engine and is paired to a supercharger. You can have it with either an automatic gearbox or a three-pedal stick shift. And, the best part – it is offered as a convertible. Oh, by the way, it also makes over 800 horses!
2021 Ford F-150 by Roush Performance
Roush Performance has come up with its version of the 2021 Ford F-150. There are aesthetic upgrades, suspension system upgrades, and some changes inside the cabin. While the package seems pretty straight-forward without any major mechanical changes, Roush has limited it to just two trims from the lineup, that too when equipped with the V-8 mill and four-wheel-drive system. Roush has priced it at a little under $18,000, which obviously excludes the cost of the donor vehicle.
2021 Ford Super Duty
While the F-150 and the F-150 Raptor saw a generation change last year, the Super Duty series will do with a modest refresh this year. Currently in its fifth generation, Ford decided to give it a second refresh, which suggests that the next-gen could still be at least a couple of years away. The 2022 Super Duty series comes with new appearance packages, new color combinations, and a few tech upgrades.
2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch Edition
The Ford Explorer proudly wears the “America’s all-time best-selling SUV” tag, and the automaker has found another way to pump up the sales. Ford has added a new trim to the lineup – the King Ranch – to further bolster the mid-level card within the Explorer’s lineup. It comes with a decent load of tech features along with leather and wood elements inside the cabin to bring out the “authenticity of the iconic Texas ranch”.
2021 Ford F-250 Super Baja by Shelby
Shelby needs no introduction. The company recently took Ford F-250 Super Duty under its wings and made it an absolute off-road beast. The truck features a new, rugged off-road suspension system, custom wheels and off-road tires, and steel bumpers amongst other things. It is powered by the stock engine itself that makes more than 1,000 pound-feet of torque. There are some tweaks on the inside, too. Courtesy of all these changes, Shelby has priced the F-250 Super Baja at over $125,000. Also, it is limited to just 250 examples. Care to buy one?
2021 Ford Ranger By Roush Performance
Ford Ranger is a capable midsize truck with a lot of potential for off-road and performance-oriented mods. Ford has denied us the pleasure of the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. market, but it has been a boon to the aftermarket companies who are filling this vacuum with their respective iterations. The latest one to do so is Roush Performance. Roush has taken the 2021 Ranger under its wing and turned it into an off-road beast.
2021 Ford Expedition XL STX
There are many of us who want a full-size SUV but not the third row. In fact, you might just keep the third row folded always because you need the cargo space more than the seats. If you fall in that category, Ford has a solution for you.
For the 2021 model, the company has released a two-row version of its Expedition SUV that not only gives you the practicality of a full-size SUV, but also shaves $3,000 off the sticker price. It is offered as the new base trim within the lineup, but comes with enough features to keep you happy.
2021 Ford GT Le Mansory
For the second time in less than a year, Mansory is dropping jaws to the floor with a new iteration of its Le Mansory program for the Ford GT. The German tuner is known for its over-the-top cosmetic upgrades, and, once again, it lived up to the billing. The second Ford GT Le Mansory packs the same design changes as the first model, albeit dressed in a new red and black colorway. Mansory has said that it plans to build three units of the GT Le Mansory. With this being the second of those three units, the third and final model should be just as wild.
