For other cars with the Ford GT name, see Ford GT (disambiguation).
The Ford GT was created to fulfill the most auspicious destiny in the world of motorsport – claiming victory at Le Mans. Marking the 50th anniversary of the original Ford GT 40’s victory, the new Ford GT was built to prove that Ford can still dominate at the highest level of sports car racing. The production model GT is the starting point for homologation from which endurance racing provenance is borne. Take one look, or one listen, or one drive, and the character of a champion is obvious. Throughout the carved aerodynamics and gloriously sculptured form, players will find active elements and static design that create not only unique allure, but massive downforce. Within, technology abounds in adjustable suspension and drivetrain settings that put 647 EcoBoost twin-turbo driven horsepower to the massive rear wheels. Ford Performance set the bar high when they reinvented the GT, and of course both destiny and expectations were exceeded with not only the victory they sought, but the awe of the lucky 1,000 owners who are lucky enough to own them.
— Official description [1]

The 2017 Ford GT, abbreviated as Ford GT '17, is a mid-engined supercar by Ford featured in Forza Motorsport 6 and all subsequent titles.

Synopsis

The 2017 Ford GT is the second-generation model of the limited-production Ford GT supercar from 2005. It went into production in December 2016 as a 2017 model to mark 50 years since the GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, with one car being built each day until October 2020.

Similar to its predcessor, the 2017 GT is Ford's halo car that shows the company's prowess in performance and technology. As such, it is equipped with a racing-inspired pushrod suspension and active aerodynamics, the first for a Ford car.[2] The car weighs 3148 lb (1428 kg) but weighs 2890 lb (1311 kg) in titles before Forza Motorsport 7.

The engine is a twin-turbocharged 3.5 liter Ecoboost V6 producing 647 hp (482 kW) at 6550 rpm and 550 ft·lb (746 N·m) of torque between 1200 to 5800 rpm, although it is featured with 630 hp (470 kW) and 539 ft·lb (731 N·m) of torque in titles before Forza Motorsport 7. It is equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox delivering power to the rear wheels.

Performance

It can do 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.9 seconds, 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.5 seconds, and reach a top speed of 216 mph (348 km/h), making it the fastest Ford production car. In the Forza games, this top speed is always exceeded, with the Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the car reaching 228 mph (367 km/h).

Special Variants

Nutri-Grain Edition

The 2017 Ford GT Nutri-Grain Edition is a liveried variant of the 2017 Ford GT available only to New Zealand players in Forza Motorsport 6 as part of a promotion with Nutri-Grain.

Horizon Edition

The Horizon Edition has an upgrade preset that tunes it to the top of S2 Class and equips it with the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4's 6.5L V12 engine, but upgraded with twin turbochargers and other engine upgrades for a total of 1310 hp (977 kW) and 952 ft·lb (1291 N·m). The car also comes with a black body color with two white racing stripes and a generic race-ready front bumper and rear wing. It awards a double base Credits boost.

It can only be obtained through the Auction House or from a Horizon Wheelspin. It was also available as a reward in the Winter Wonder Land-Down-Under Forzathon event for completing the Reindeer Games challenge, but can was obtainable again from the event Rhapsodic Racers until September 7, 2018.

Forza Edition

The Forza Edition comes with homologated performance that retains its stock engine and gives a 50% CR boost that will be doubled for racing at Le Mans. Although its exterior is similar to the Horizon Edition from Forza Horizon 3 it lacks the dual white racing stripes.

It is rewarded upon completing all Championships in the Forza Driver's Cup.

Trivia

  • It appears on the cover art for Forza Motorsport 6 and on the normal app icon for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.
    • Owning the 2017 Ford GT in Forza Motorsport 6 unlocks the Cover Car achievement.
  • Its engine cover and front bonnet remain permanently shut in Forzavista, although the Ford #66 Ford Racing GT Le Mans's engine cover and front bonnet can be opened. This was fixed in Forza Motorsport 7, where it now has an openable engine cover.[3]
    • Its engine cover can only be opened and closed via the Explode and Implode functions, respectively.
  • In the game files of Forza Horizon 3 it is referenced as the "2016 Ford Phoenix" ("FOR_Phoenix_16" and "FOR_PhoenixHE_16").
  • Its Forza Motorsport 7 rendition features side bumper markers, further indicating that the model used is now a US-spec model.
    • The Forza Edition lacks side bumper markers, indicating that its model was reused from the Horizon Edition in Forza Horizon 3, which in turn is based on the pre-Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of the 2017 Ford GT (the one that lacks side bumper markers).
  • Up until Forza Horizon 4, this car came with only Liquid Blue as a manufacturer color option, even though it is available with multiple colors in real life.[4]
  • Its windshield glass is made of Gorilla Glass, which is also used for smartphone screens.
