For other cars with the Ford GT name, see Ford GT (disambiguation).

The 2017 Ford GT, also abbreviated as Ford GT '17, is a supercar that appears in Forza Motorsport 6 and all subsequent titles. In Forza Horizon 3, the GT is also used as a Horizon Edition car. In Forza Motorsport 7, the GT appears as a Forza Edition car.

The 2017 Ford GT is the second-generation model of Ford's GT limited-production supercar introduced in 2005. It acts as Ford's current halo car, tracing back its origin to the Ford GT40 race car of the 1960s.

Description

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

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, 0-100 mph (161 km/h) in 5.5 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.

Main article: Forza Edition cars

The 2017 Ford GT Horizon Edition is a special variant of the 2017 Ford GT that can only be won through the Auction House, Horizon Wheelspin, or the Winter Wonder Land-Down-Under #Forzathon event by completing the Reindeer Games challenge. The Ford GT 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. It awards a double Credits boost.

The 2017 Ford GT Forza Edition is identical to the 2017 Ford GT Horizon Edition but for use in Forza Motorsport 7. It lacks the dual white racing stripes and twin-turbocharged Aventador V12 seen on the Horizon Edition car and is instead featured with homologated performance for the Exotic GT division. It also retains the 647 hp (482 kW) 3.5L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 from the original 2017 Ford GT.
