Drako GTE

0-60 mph: 3.4 seconds

HP: 1200 

Torque: 6,491 lb-ft

Price: $1,250,000

Dodge built the Viper for those who think the Corvette is too soft. Carroll Shelby laid out the chassis and suspension, so you know it was built to run. A monster V10 is based on the 360 Magnum V8. Viper never offered a V8 or manual transmission. It doesn’t play well with others, especially the GTS and ACR editions.

Saleen S7 LM

0-60 mph: 2.2 seconds

HP: 1500 

Torque: 1,328 lb-ft

Price: On Request

Steve Saleen likes going fast, so he turned his Mustang aftermarket business into a supercar builder witht the S7. The body takes inspiration from a stillborn Aston Martin racing project. Into it, they built a 427 ci (7 liter) V8 that was naturally aspirated. In 2005, a twin turbo model was introduced. It makes 750 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. The latest version is the S7 LM. It delivers 1,500 horsepower with less weight than earlier models

Henry Ford II wanted to go racing. The easiest way to do this was to buy Ferrari, but Enzo wouldn’t sell the rights to his racing teams. So Ford asked Carroll Shelby to take a Lola chassis and stuff it with American power. The 2018 Ford GT is a 50th anniversary of the originals, which brought home first place in 1967 and 2017.
