This is what true innovation looks like. From its 3.5L EcoBoost® engine technology to its ultra-efficient aerodynamics, the Ford GT is the culmination of everything great at Ford. And it’s the same passion for innovation that can be seen throughout the entire new Ford vehicle lineup.
The 2017 Ford GT is one of more than 12 new Ford Performance vehicles that Ford plan to release by 2020. It will join the already fantastic performance line up, including the Fiesta nd Focus ST, the new Focus RS, Mustang, the American F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R.
From its aerodynamically optimized shape to its multi functional buttresses, to its extraordinarily powerful 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine; everything about the Ford GT is designed to deliver pure performance.
Its teardrop-shape body is the result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. It's carbon-fiber design and projected 600-plus horsepower, are the ultimate expressions of technological innovation.
While the new GT is set to share it's legacy with classic Ford racing and performance cars, it will hold a contemporary and functional shape that communicates modernity and pure beauty. The lightweight body is made of carbon fiber and aluminum structures minimize the weight of the high-strength subframes. From the front the GT is immediately recognisable, yet a wider stance, deployable rear spoiler and rifled exhaust give it a defining aggressive yet modern look. Every slope and shape is designed to minimize drag and optimize downforce.
A state-of-the-art chassis is suspended by an active racing-style torsion bar and pushrod suspension, with adjustable ride height. The reactive rear spoiler will adapt to both speed and driver input, reactively adjusting depending on conditions.
An F1-style steering wheel integrates will integrate all of the necessary driver controls. Allowing uncluttered access to the transmission paddle-shift controls.
The Ford GT application process will begin soon and you'll only be able to get details from a FordStore, including TC Harrison Derby and Peterbrough.
Ford will begin production later this year and the GT will hit the road in select global markets to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford GT40 race cars placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
