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.
By 2028 The Ford Mustang Could Be An All-Electric Coupe
When Ford unveiled its first electric SUV, the Mach-E, with ‘Mustang’ in it, people lost their minds. The pony badge belongs to a rich heritage of loud, roaring muscle cars that has built a legacy of its own over the decades. Many of us kind of accepted it since it was a new model with the Mustang badge and not a replacement.
However, this new report has ticked us off again. According to Autoline Daily, the Mustang is going to go all-electric starting 2028. Nope, it won’t be sold alongside the regular, rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered pony. It will be the end of an era. I’m not crying, you’re crying.
If you were to run a BMW M2 against a Shelby GT350, which do you think would win? Well, throttle house decided to do just that and put them through the paces on the track and in a drag race to see which one was actually better. In one corner, the BMW M2 is capable of putting out 365 horsepower and a sprint to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds, thanks to a 3.0-liter inline-six. In the other corner, we have the Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 that pumps out 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque from a 5.2-liter V-8. On paper, the Mustang should kill the M2 all day long running a cylinder down. But, it’s not always so cut and dry as you’ll see in the video below. Go ahead and click play, then sit back and enjoy the action!
This 600-Horsepower Ford Falcon XR6 Comes From Sleeperville
Back in 2016, Ford ended production at its Victoria-based plant in Australia, a decision that also put an end to the Falcon, a local nameplate that was first introduced in 1960. With more than 50 decades on the market, the Falcon was extremely popular in Australia, where it competed against another iconic local car, the Holden Commodore, built by GM. Both were discontinued, and both are dearly missed. But Australian streets are still packed with Ford Falcons, and while some are downright mundane, some of them have been turned into high-performance sleepers. FastLowLoud just showcased an XR6 Turbo model that cranks out a whopping 600 horsepower.
Awesome Car for Sale: Ultra-Rare 1985 Ford Sierra RS Cosworth
The Ford Sierra RS Cosworth has been rising in popularity over these last few years to the point that some ultra-clean examples have traded hands for over $120,000 and this may become one of the most expensive examples ever sold.
That’s because this blue Cossie is the last remaining road-legal survivor of a batch of 10 pre-production cars made by Ford to test and tune what would become one of the most legendary cars ever to be adorned by the FoMoCo badge. Those 204 horses may not seem like much today but we’ll assure you the towering rear wing is bound to turn more heads today than many modern sports cars.
Ford Actually Believes That the Focus ST Is Better Than the Volkswagen Golf GTI
Ford has been working to dethrone the Volkswagen Golf GTI with the Focus ST for more than a decade now. Needless to say, it wasn’t exactly successful at it, as the Golf GTI is still the best-selling hot hatch in nearly every market. But Ford Performance Europe boss Stefan Meunzinger thinks that the latest-generation Focus ST finally has what it takes to overtake its rival.
Ford Just Cancelled the Fourth-Gen 2022 Focus RS
There’s no easy way to put it so here we go: Ford won’t build a fourth-generation Focus RS because it cannot develop a high-performance hybrid powertrain for the sports car, one that would help the carmaker keep its vehicle fleet within the EU’s CO2 emission standards requirements.
Top 10 Fastest Used Cars Under $20K
With the prices of cars increasing, a $20,000 used sports car has become harder to obtain these days. Not too long ago, you could afford a decent runner for $20,000 and still have enough change to buy a few cosmetic kits. But that’s no longer the case today, or at least, not for the most part. Look hard enough, though, and you can still score some good deals on used sports cars for $20,000 or less. These cars aren’t world-beaters by any stretch of the imagination, but they should still have enough juice to get the adrenaline flowing. They’re out there in the world. All you need to do is look for them.
Is a Hennessey Venom 775 Faster Than a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?
Hennessey recently launched its latest recreation of the Ford F-150 called the Hennessey Venom 775. The truck has received a massive makeover, especially under the hood, and looks like Bruce Banner being exposed to Gamma rays. The truck is mighty quick and looks like a monster with the lift job and massive tires. To prove that the truck has more to it than its looks, the folks at Hennessey decided to pit it against a stock Mustang GT350. The GT350 is not an ordinary car, but can the Venom 775 beat it in a drag race?
The Ford Focus RS As We Know It Is Dead
The last-gen Ford Focus RS was a fantastic car in every way, essentially setting a new standard for the term “hot hatch.” The next-generation Focus RS should have raised the bar even higher with its expected mild-hybrid drivetrain, 400 horsepower, and blistering quick acceleration. All of that has changed now, though, and the new European fleet emissions standards have, at the very least, delayed the next-generation Focus RS and could possibly lead to its cancellation altogether.
This Mustang Bullitt vs Supra Race Proves That Power Isn’t Everything on a Drag Strip
On paper, a 480-horsepower Ford Mustang Bullitt should have no problem beating a 335-horsepower Toyota Supra in a drag race. But the tricky thing about predicting drag race results on paper is that they’re not worth the trees that were cut down to produce said paper. In other words, they don’t mean anything.
Car Magazine SA sought to answer the Mustang Bullitt versus Supra question by doing it the proper way: a drag race between the American muscle car and the Japanese sports car. If you’re looking at the protagonists of this race and you’re convinced that the Mustang Bullitt will have no problem laying waste to the Supra, then you might want to watch this video in all its entirety.

I know you’re already bummed that the Ford Focus Hatch isn’t long for the U.S. market, and, I’m sorry to tell you, depression is about to set in even worse.
