This is a subjective matter, but if you would ask 10 gearheads what are their favorite supercar presented in the last year or so, chances are most of them will say the 2017 Ford GT that debuted in January.
Rewind back to the Detroit Auto Show and FoMoCo utterly obliterated Acura's NSX launch with a trio of performance-oriented machines: the instant classic 2017 Ford GT, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor dune runner and the 2016 Shelby GT350R Mustang.

We know that the 2017 Ford GT and its 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 with over 600 ponies will enter production in late 2016, but until this point, information was slim on pricing and production numbers. Not anymore though, as the guys from MotorAuthority managed to have a chat with Ford Performance boss Dave Pericak at the Geneva Motor Show and found out two interesting details.

Without further beating around the bush, Dave told MA that the price of the production-spec GT will be "near that of the Lamborghini Aventador," which goes for around $400,000 in the U. S. of A. In Europe, the suggested retail price of an Aventador is €275,000, so go figure how much the 2017 Ford GT will cost.

It's a far cry compared to the Ford GT of the Noughties, but then again, the one we're waiting for is a far cry in terms of propulsion technologies, construction and, most important aspect of all, power-to-weight ratio. In addition to this price pointer, Pericak also declared that Ford will make the 2017 Ford GT in very limited numbers: about 250 examples of the breed will be made yearly over the course of several years. Gulp!

I don't even want to imagine how much you'll have to wait for such a beastly machine. But then again, 1960s Le Mans pedigree with a modern Ford Performance twist doesn't come cheap. Speaking of which, I have a sudden urge of buying a lotto ticket... or more. Am I the only one suffering from this urge?
