Building on decades of design expertise and technical innovation, the second-generation Ford GT is set to be a world-beating supercar. The original model achieved legendary success at the Le Mans race, winning four times in a row.
The GT has an elegant and purposeful design that echoes previous Ford racing cars. This mid-engined model has well-balanced proportions and is optimised for aerodynamic efficiency. The bonnet has two large air ducts and there are two flying buttress wings at the sides for extra downforce.
These race-focused design features give the GT an imposing road presence, and the car is constructed from carbon fibre to save weight and enhance performance. The circular tail lamps and low, wedge-shaped bonnet hark back to the original Le Mans winner with a nod to iconic Ford style.
The GT will be powered by a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine with two turbo chargers. This finely tuned unit is expected to produce more than 600bhp, making it the most powerful EcoBoost engine Ford has ever produced. Along with the two turbo chargers, Ford has employed a raft of sophisticated engine technologies to maximise the power output, including an advanced fuel injection system.
Thanks to the Ford designers’ extensive use of carbon fibre throughout the GT’s construction, it will be a supremely lightweight car. Ford has not released any performance figures yet, but it is estimated that the GT will accelerate from zero to 60mph in under four seconds and reach a top speed of at least 200mph.
This model will be exclusively available as a rear-wheel drive car, keeping the focus on a lively and engaging driving experience. Power will be delivered to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, enabling slick gear changes that allow the GT to accelerate even faster.
This exhilarating new model will arrive in SMC showrooms throughout the UK in 2017.
