Description Edit

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.

Specifications Edit

The 2017 Ford GT went into production in December 2016, to mark 50 years since the Ford GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, as a 2017 year model with one car being built each day until October 2020. The 2017 Ford GT sports a newly designed 3.5L (3,496 cc) twin-turbocharged Ford Ecoboost V6 engine that produces over 600 hp (447 kW).

The 2017 Ford GT's new 3.5L twin-turbocharged Ford Ecoboost V6 engine pumps out 647 hp (482 kW) at 6,550 rpm and 550 ft·lb (746 N·m) of torque between 1,200 to 5,800 rpm. The car also has a racing-inspired pushrod suspension and active aerodynamics, the first for a Ford car. It is equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox delivering power to the rear wheels. Weighing 3054 lb (1385 kg), the Ford GT has a power-to-weight ratio of 4.72 lb/2.14 kg per hp.

The 2017 Ford GT can do 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 216 mph (348 km/h), making it Ford's fastest production car ever. In the Forza games, this top speed is always exceeded.

The Ford GT's windshield glass is made of Gorilla Glass, which is also used for smartphone screens.
