Ford has unveiled the all-new
GT, an ultra-high-performance supercar that serves as a technology showcase for
top EcoBoost performance, aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fibre
In a press release, the
company said the GT is one of more than 12 new Ford Performance vehicles coming
by 2020. It joins Focus RS, F-150 Raptor, Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R in the
growing Ford Performance lineup.
Beginning production late next
year, the GT hits the road in select global markets to celebrate the 50th
anniversary of Ford GT race cars placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
“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,” he added. The all-new GT
supercar features rear-wheel drive, a mid-mounted engine, and a sleek,
aerodynamic, two-door coupe body shell. It is propelled by the most powerful
EcoBoost production engine ever – a next-generation twin-turbocharged EcoBoost
V6 producing more than 600 horsepower.
The GT makes extensive use of
lightweight materials, including carbon fibre and aluminum – enabling
outstanding acceleration and handling with improved efficiency.
