New Ford GT with more than 600 horsepower, a stunning design and a phenomenal performance
New Ford GT comes the end of 2016 in Europe market and pulls the car enthusiasts around the world are already under the spell. But one question is hot: What will it cost the new super sports car from Ford? On an evening event at this year’s Geneva Motor betrayed a man of the price and the proposed number of units.

With the 2017 Ford GT plays again in the league of super sports cars. When driving the hitherto most powerful EcoBoost petrol engine series used at all: a 3.5-liter V6 with two turbochargers, which has real racing genes and will develop over 600 hp. The mid-engine drives the rear wheels of the two-seater. The torque yet unnamed Ford will extend over a wide speed range and provide high fuel efficiency. His power transmits the twin-turbo a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, which provides almost instantaneous shifts.
Weight reduction is one of the most effective measures to achieve performance and efficiency. In the new Ford GT, the makers implement the most modern composite materials and carbon fiber elements. According to Ford, to achieve the GT one of the best power to weight ratio in its class.
The suspension side also gets innovative racing technology used. This is testified, the pushrod suspension with pushrods and active stabilizer which can be adapted in height. Behind the multi-piece 20-inch alloy wheels do carbon-ceramic brakes from Brembo their service.
The American Dave Pericak, director of Ford Performance, stated that the selling price of the Ford GT at the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 is based, which is available in the US from 400,000 US dollars and in Europe from at least 312 970 EUR , Only 250 copies of the Ford GT will be created per year – and that only a few years, so that the total production remains below 1,000 units.
Visually, the new Ford GT knows how to impress whose emotional lines, the designer closely which are basically the iconic predecessor. Huge air intakes at the front and the side already indicate the enormous power potential, while sleek air guide elements are made of carbon aerodynamics and sharpen the look further. Meanwhile, can be positioned in the mid engine engine admired through a transparent window.
The rear features a powerful carbon, two round, reminiscent of engines tail lights and two huge, center and far top-mounted exhaust pipes. About the modern driver’s cell spans the flat roof, which also contributes to the excellent aerodynamics of the Ford GT 2017.
The highlight: The new Ford GT has air guide elements that adjust adaptively to the driving situation. The thus generated variable pressure allows especially at higher speeds extremely high driving stability and combines this with an optimized aerodynamic drag coefficient.
