Ford has taken the wraps off their next generation supercar at this weeks Detroit Auto Show, the new Ford GT.
The new Ford GT takes its design cues from the original GT40, but it has more of a modern look than the last model.
The GT comes with a mid engine 3.5 litre V6 engine with twin turbos, EcoBoost and it comes with more than 600 HP, Ford has not specified the exact performance on their new supercar.
“As we at Ford drive innovation into every part of our business, it’s worth remembering that our first innovation as a company was not in a laboratory, but on the racetrack,” said Mark Fields, Ford president and chief executive officer, referring to Henry Ford’s win of a 1901 car race that inspired financial backers to invest in his company. “We are passionate about innovation through performance and creating vehicles that make people’s hearts pound.”
The new Ford GT is designed to be lightweight with a carbon fiber passenger cell, and aluminum front and rear sub frames plus carbon fiber body panels.
The twin turbo V6 EcoBoost engine is paired with a seven speed dual clutch trans axle which for said gives almost instant gear changes.
It also comes with 20 inch wheels which are fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport tires and it features upwards lifting doors, and carbon ceramic brake disks.
It certainly looks very impressive from the photos, as yet Ford have not revealed any pricing or a launch date for their new GT.
