New top-secret supercar to be built in Toronto

Ford spun heads in January when it revealed its 2017 GT supercar at the Detroit auto show - and now, it looks like Toronto gets to unleash its unprecedented badassery upon the rest of the world. Ford announced yesterday the car will be produced in Markham by Toronto-based company Multimatic -- the same folks who had a hand in the Aston Martin CC100 and the One-77.

Developed in secret over the past year (which, fittingly, is hyperspeed in the auto world), the two-door GT will feature a carbon-fibre body, scissor doors, rear-wheel drive, and an EcoBoost V-6 600 hp engine - all of which, Ford says, will add up to the best power-to-ratio of any car on the market. The final model is due out next year.

What do you think? Are you excited for this car of the future?
