Come, let’s take a bit more detailed look at these speedsters with the Boy Things :


2017 Ford GT

Ford GT is a legendary world-beater! A car that do not need any kind of introductions. The GT dominated LeMans in the late 60’s (’66, ’67, ’68, and ’69). Fifty years after, in 2006, the GT returned to the tracks with a whole lot of improvements. Once again, it showed the world the power that the Ford ingenuity beholds. This time, the new Ford GT wasn’t just built to win races – it was a test-bed of new and advanced technologies put into action for possibly the first time. Its development produced advancements in materials, aerodynamics and powertrain performance that should in turn benefit the entire Ford lineup.

The GT is built with the purpose of delivering pure power and incomparable performance. The 2017 Ford GT chooses to focus on downforce and drag reduction. Constant nipping and tucking throughout the development process means the GT has a truly remarkable power-to-weight ratio. Its active dynamic systems provide optimum down force, drag and balance at any speed. With a top speed of 216 MPH, it’s fierce, it’s gorgeous, and it wins, again and again.

The GT is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost, it produces a monstrous 647 horsepower. It’s lightweight body is made of carbon fiber. Aluminum structures minimize the weight of the high-strength subframes. This beast harvests all its power from the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine and is Ford’s most aerodynamically sophisticated supercar.


2013 Ford Shelby GT500


Shelby Mustang is a high performance variant of the Ford Mustang. It was built by Shelby in between 1965 and 1968, and from then on by Ford. The Ford Shelby GT500 is the most powerful Mustang ever.

It uses a DOHC 354.6 cubic inches 32-V V8 supercharged engine is capable of producing 662 bhp and 631 lb-ft of torque. This spedster has a claimed top speed of 202 miles per hour (325 km/h). The new GT500 weighs approximately 3,850 pounds (1,750 kg) and has no grill, due to the massive amount of cooling required for the vehicle.Shelby mustang hot wheels | Boy Things | Need For Speed No Limits

2017 Jaguar XE SV Project 8


The 2017 Jaguar XE SV Project 8 is engineered to be the world’s most exhilarating sports sedan – exclusive, rare and with the very latest state-of-the-art technology.  With 600 PS from a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine, the Project 8 is the most powerful street-legal Jaguar vehicle in history. Jaguar is to produce only 300 Project 8 worldwide. Each and every model is hand assembled and also offers a choice between two seat track oriented version and a road biased four seater.

It uses motor sport-derived suspension and a modified all-wheel-drive system for outstanding driver feel and agility. The heart of the car is the legendary Jaguar supercharged V8. But the speed and driving exhilaration ain’t just about power. The Jaguar pioneered lightweight aluminum architecture combined with the extensive use of carbon fiber in the Project 8. For example, the hood, bumpers, fenders, side skirts, front splitter and rear spoiler – keep weight to a minimum.


So, as the makers say “Blackridge has a new king of the jungle“. But, are you ready to tame the beast?! Do you have what it takes to rule the streets of Blackridge?! If yes, we shall meet soon! 😉
