7. 2017 Dodge Viper 25th Anniversary Editions (645 hp)
Although Viper’s now gone, at least it bowed and left the stage in a proper way. Dodge offered no less than five final editions which got snapped up in five days. Had FCA managed to sell 40 Vipers per day on a regular basis like these special editions, Viper would still be here. All five models came with 645 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque which was the maximum amount of power sports car that saved Chrysler at one point managed to achieve. Although they don’t really differ from the rest of the conventional lineup, besides their unique paint and badging, it’s safe to assume these 206 25th anniversary edition models will one day drive much higher stickers than their siblings.
6. 2017 Ford GT (647 hp)
With big shoes of its iconic Ferrari fighting and four time 24 Hours of Le Mans winner GT40 to fill, new Ford GT has had its work cut out for him. Nevertheless, 2017 Ford GT duly delivered. It’s got 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of twist and it’s assembled out of 250 carbon-fiber pieces. What’s even more striking is the fact that Ford Performance managed to squeeze all that power out of 3.5L V6 mill. Twin-turbocharged, though, but still on the small side. Without any doubt, Ford GT will earn its place among the coolest and most advanced American cars of its generation. Just like its predecessors have done before him.
