Revealed at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford's new GT40 design is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine and a seven-speed semi-automatic dual-clutch transmission. The 2016 Ford GT merges the classic retro-feel of the original 1966 GT40 with sleek modern-day aesthetics and a newly designed power-train.
The second-generation Ford GT is composed of lightweight carbon fiber panels affixed to aluminum front and rear sub-frames, giving the car one of the greatest power to weight ratios in the industry. This rear-wheel drive sports coupe has a rear mid-engine layout, placing the engine between the two-passenger cockpit and the rear axle. The twin-turbo EcoBoost engine delivers more than 600 horsepower and over 500 pounds of torque per foot. The Ford GT achieves a zero to 60 mile per hour time of 3 seconds, and it reaches speeds greater than 200 miles per hour.
This exotic-style hyper-car features butterfly doors, active aerodynamics, carbon-ceramic brakes and a lay-down shock, push-rod suspension. The Ford GT rolls on 20-inch rims featuring Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires. Two exhaust tips port centrally high above the GT's rear diffuser. Inside the cockpit, a color touch-screen offers Sync 3 infotainment access and a racing-inspired steering wheel provides a pair of paddle shifters.
