|At the 2015 North American Auto Show Ford pulled the curtain off of the all-new 2017 Ford GT. With a super-light carbon fiber and aluminum construction, a 600-plus horsepower, EcoBoost V-6 and a race-ready cockpit, the latest Ford GT is hands down the best supercar in the history of the Blue Oval brand.|
The 2017 Ford GT was conceived to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company’s legendary victory at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans race, in which three Ford GT40 race cars swept first, second and third place.
|It had to be fast tracked from concept to production, with testing and development compressed into the next 18 months in order to go on sale by the end of next year|
Power will be sent to the rear wheels courtesy of a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Said force is transmitted to the rear wheels with 20-inch alloy wheels wearing specially designed Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
|The all-new GT starts production in 2016.|
