It’s been a while since Blue Oval finally revealed the upcoming Ford GT specs. Supercar is bound to become the fastest Ford ever made thanks to 647 horsepower and 550 feet-pound of twist coming out of rather unconventional second generation 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 found also in new Ford F-150 Raptor. Although Supercars don’t usually share their engines with pickups, this time it worked out both ways. Raptor gets it in intended, no nonsense form, while GT’s EcoBoost had been tampered with in order to be worthy for the supercar. This is where 200 horsepower discrepancy comes from.
But what about the competition? Most modern day supercars feature larger displacement V8, V10 and even V12 engines. That’s sure to be more than handful for GT’s “petite” V6, right? Well, no. Although numerous hypercars turn out more than 700, 800, 900 or even 1,000 ponies (not to mention the price), great many of them still find themselves in the 500-600 horsepower range. That’s less than what GT’s capable to offer. Moreover, none of them have the engine that’s smaller than the next gen EcoBoost. So, to cut the long story short, here are 10 prime examples of supercars delivering less horsepower with more displacement and cylinders than the Ford GT.
1. Aston Martin Rapide AMR
Track-only Aston Martins are, by now, as numerous as street legal versions. GT2, GT3, GT4, N24, Rally GT, Vantage GT12… Take your pick. And now, Brits have presented the newest such track-focused grand tourer – 500 hp, V8-powered Vantage AMR Pro. What’s even better, AMR (Aston Martin Racing) comes in street-legal form as well. One that’s even more powerful than Vantage AMR Pro.
Enter Aston Martin Rapide AMR – a 592-horsepower capable refined beast, you can put your licence plate on. In case you wonder, Rapide AMR delivers those 592 ponies thanks to 6.0L naturally aspirated V12 engine which also gives it impeccable exhaust note. Even though it has 2.5L more in displacement and a badge of great pedigree plastered upon it, as you can see, Aston Martin Rapide AMR still falls short compared to the Ford GT. However, with the top speed of 210 mph, it’s now the newly crowned king of fastest 4-door cars. It’ll also be rather exclusive with only 200 of them planned for now.
