If you are a car enthusiast, you probably know of the 1964 Ford GT40 and that it is one of the most iconic American sports cars ever made. After numerous attempts at a spiritual successor, Ford came up with the 2005 GT. With that said, even the sequel to the icon is too expensive for most. Luckily, there are alternatives and our investigation stumbled upon a listing in the Facebook group Fiberclassics handcrafted cars, kit cars, Replicas. An almost finished, 2021 Superlite GT-R kit car has been listed by Facebook user, Jon Leone, and it looks like a worthy, budget-friendly alternative to the American icon.

For those of you who might not know, Everrati is a British company specialized in converting iconic vintage cars into electric cars. In 2021, it joined forces with Superformance - a company based in Jupiter, Florida, and reengineered the legendary Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 race car.

These Are the Most Powerful Three-Cylinder Engines in New Cars
Gone are the days when three-cylinder engines were only meant for urban commutes. These engines were light and focused more on fuel efficiency than performance. However, things are changing, and with upsizing not an option anymore, thanks to stricter emission regulations, automakers are making the best they can with fewer cylinders and lower displacements. Companies don’t just offer them with forced induction now; they even pair them with electric motors and batteries to generate all the oomph possible. Believe it or not, there are a handful of high-performance three-cylinder engines that can blow larger engines out of the water.
The Fastest American Cars Ever Produced
While most people might automatically assume some of the fastest cars ever made are from Europe or Japan, that simply isn’t the case because you’ve got some pretty serious speed machines conceived right here in America. This list is comprised of cars from both mainstream automakers and boutique manufacturers who produce just a handful of super-exotics per year. Spoiler: The fastest American car also happens to be the world’s fastest production car currently!
An All-Electric Ford GT Could Dominate The Supercar Segment
With an investment of $22 Billion towards electrification, Ford is betting big on EVs. Iconic names like the Mustang and North America’s best-selling vehicle, the F-150 (sold-out) have already taken the plunge with the Mach-E and the Lightning pick-up.
While these vehicles cater to a broader audience in terms of being accessible, what about cars at the other end of the spectrum? With such large investments toward EVs in the pipeline, it’s not hard to imagine heritage names like the GT could also make this transition. These exclusive renders from our sister outlet, Hotcars, should give you an idea of what a potential Ford E-GT could look like.

Hoonigan’s YouTube channel returns with another “Hoonicorn versus the world” episode and this time it’s all on the line because the mighty Hoonicorn goes up against a Tesla Model S Plaid – the bane of many high-performance, combustion-powered vehicles. So far the Lia Block – Ken Block’s, 14-year old daughter - has been crushing it, losing only to a 2,000 horsepower Nissan GT-R.

Behind those wheels sit Brembo brake calipers lacquered in silver with black graphics. The rest of the exterior is littered with carbon fiber components, including the following:Front splitter Side sills Mirror stalks Engine louvers Rear Diffuser

The instrument panel is wrapped in Ebony leather Light Speed Blue Alcantara, with Antimatter blue accents on the dash, door bezels, and seat X-braces. Finally, there’s healthy doses of carbon fiber where appropriate. As for pricing, well that’s a complete mystery, but expect it to be well above the standard GT’s entry price of $500,000. This car will be shown off to the public at Monterey Car Week next to the only remaining 1964 Ford GT prototype in existence: the GT/105.

Four times a winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GT40, in its various iterations, changed the racing world forever moving the goalposts further than ever before.

Ford Performance, in collaboration with Ford GT manufacturer Multimatic, has released the first Ford GT Studio Collection model, and it is a stunner. Dressed in a black paint finish with an orange racing stripe and matching accents all around, this Ford GT is the first of 40 Studio Collection variants that Ford will build over the next two years of the supercar’s production.

Those Who Purchased a Ford GT Two Years Ago Are now Cashing in Hand Over Fist
When Ford imposed a two-year resale ban on Ford GTs, it put a lot of people in precarious positions, specifically those who lucked into purchasing a GT with the intent to flip them afterward. Fortunately, two years isn’t a long time these days, and those who purchased their Ford GTs in 2018 are now able to reap the rewards from all the waiting.
A 2018 Ford GT is up for auction on the Bring A Trailer site, and with eight days still remaining in the auction, the GT is now close to doubling the amount the original owner paid for the supercar in 2018. If bidding continues at its current pace, there’s a reasonable chance that this 2018 Ford GT could fetch seven figures. That’s not a bad return on investment, is it?
Cool Car For Sale: 2018 Ford GT
The mid-engined Ford GT first debuted back in 2004 and was in production for a couple of years. Based on the credibility of the GT40, which recorded four consecutive 24 Hours of Le Mans wins from 1966 to 1969, this moniker is significant in the company’s history.
In 2015, Ford announced that the GT was being brought back after a decade-long exile. The car is selling like hotcakes and a number of special editions are already launched, but there’s no denying that the GT is still quite an exclusive car. However, one example recently arrived on Bring-a-Trailer and has caught our attention.
Amazing Car for Sale: 2005 Ford GT
The Ford GT needs to introduction. This car won four consecutive Le Mans races in the late 1960s. The supercar has a long history, and all its credibility was shifted to the street-legal performance car from the automaker at the turn of the century. At the 2002 North American International Auto Show, the company unveiled the GT40 Concept and the first-gen production year cars rolled out a couple of years later.
Ford sold a little over 2,000 examples in the car’s first year on sale in 2005, and one of those examples is now up for sale at a Bring-a-Trailer auction. This 2005 GT, in the classic Red shade, has just over 1,100 clicks on the odometer, and is definitely one to collect, provided you have around a quarter-million bucks to spare. Bid away?
This 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition Could Change Hands for Millions
One of the rarest versions of the Ford GT supercar is headed for the auction block, and it could fetch up to seven figures if everything goes as anticipated. A 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition can be all yours provided you have the pockets to afford it. One of these special edition models is headed to a Mecum Auctions event that will run from November 12 to November 14 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
It’s expected to fetch a king’s ransom considering that used 2018 GT models are already fetching over $1 million in the used (super)car market. Even better, this isn’t your “standard” Ford GT; it’s a Heritage Edition GT that was launched in 2018 and comes with, among other exclusive touches, an engine coil cover that’s signed by drivers Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt, the duo that claimed the Le Mans 24 Hours title back in 1967.

Together, the two parties created an avenue for Ford GT owners to personalize the look and color of their supercars through this graphics package. It comes with exclusive body colors, racing stripes, trims, accents, and everything in between. Unfortunately, access to the Ford GT Studio Collection is limited to just 40 units of the Ford GT, spread out across the 2021 and 2022 model years.
