These Are The Best Cars Built By Ford
When Henry Ford started the Ford Motor Company with the help of several investors in 1903, he had the vision to make the best automobile company in the world. Ford introduced the Model T which was built in Kansas City, Missouri in 1911. And we all know it became one of the best-selling cars in the world. Ford became the leading carmaker which introduced large-scale car manufacturing and was the first to use a moving assembly line to make its vehicles. It was a dream company for the people to work in as it had the best labour standards and industry-leading technology. Throughout their time, Ford made many vehicles including cars, trucks, and also tractors. Out of many ones, here are the 10 best Ford cars they ever built.
10. 1985 Ford RS200
The RS200 was a crown jewel made by Ford in the Group B rally championship. It came with a 2.1-litre straight-four engine that produced an enormous 420 horsepower which was big at the time. The aerodynamic body of the car was designed specifically to produce more downforce with no rear wing to minimise the weight. The Ford RS200 won several championships including the English Lindisfarne Rally in 1985.
9. 1982 Ford Mustang GT
The Mustang has always been one of the flagship cars in the American market. But this 1982 model of the Ford Mustang GT brought significant improvement in power and performance. It packed a 4.9-litre V8 engine that was called 5.0. It is the Mustang which we all know as a performance-oriented muscle car.
8. 2018 Ford Fiesta ST200
No matter how much you love the Mini Cooper, this pocket Ford car can leave the Mini to dust. The Ford Fiesta was power by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 200 hp as the name ST200. Paired with a six-speed manual transmission made enthusiasts enjoy this car fully. With only 400 of these ever made, the Ford Fiesta ST200 was an incredible and capable car.
7. 1996 Ford Crown Victoria
Built on the Ford’s “panther” platform, the Crown Victoria was one of the favourite cars for the people who like its design which was durable and could be moulded into any car for any purpose. Why wouldn’t it be? These cars are everywhere from Police cars to Taxis. There is hardly any car as popular as this.
6. 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback “Eleanor”
Popular for being in the movie Gone In 60 Seconds, the 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 Eleanor use by Nicolas Cage in the movie. One of three cars ever made sold at a 2013 auction for a whopping $1 million. One could also find one for them for a hefty sum of $200,000. A California-based company called “Fusion Motor Co.” finds a 67-68′ Mustang and converts it into an Eleanor. While it is a very heavy amount but worth it if you want a car as stunning as this.
5. 1955 Ford Thunderbird
Ford made the 55′ Thunderbird rival the Chevrolet Corvette who was making a two-door car. They only made these two-door models for just two years as they start making a four-door car that was focus more on a family car. It packed a Vi engine that made 198 horsepower. It is quite rare to find the 55′ model year one but it was one of the most good-looking cars the company made during the time.
4. 2017 Ford Focus RS
Before the Fiesta ST200, Ford was killing the hot hatch scene with its Ford Focus RS. The Focus came with a turbo-four engine that produced 350 hp and was capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 4.6 seconds. Ford Focus RS was a popular car in Europe before Ford brought it into the US in 2017. It is still one of the best hatchbacks one could have.
3. 2021 Ford GT
The Ford GT is “The Best Car” Ford has ever made. With a 3.5-litre V6 engine the 2021 GT makes a hefty 647 horsepower and can do 0-60mph in under 3.0 seconds. Carrying a legacy of its predecessor the iconic piece of machinery costs over $500,000 and certainly is a collector’s item due to the limited 1000 pieces that Ford will make. This is the newest supercar in the list of 10 Best Ford Cars.
2. Ford Model T
With over 16.5 million models built for over 20 years, the Ford Model T is one of the best-selling cars in the world. The Model T revolutionised the automobile industry in the 20th century. It made it easier for everyone to have a car that was utility and affordable rather than just a car built for the rich. The affordability was the result of the success of the car and made Ford popular around the globe.
1. Ford GT40
There is just no discussion here. Apart from the design and the innovation behind it, there is a much more sentimental and emotional value behind the story. I don’t know if you know the history or not, or if you have seen the popular movie “Ford Vs. Ferrari”. Nevertheless, long story short, the GT40 made to beat the infamous Ferrari at the 24-Hour LeMans after the deal between Henry Ford II to buy Ferrari from Sir Enzo Ferrari broke off. The V8-powered monster which produced 485 horsepower is a very rare machine to see today with only 135 of these ever built. This is one of the best super in the list of 10 Best Ford Cars.
