The 2017 Ford GT sports a newly designed 3.5L (3,496 cc) twin-turbocharged Ford Ecoboost V6 engine that produces over 600 HP.

The 2017 Ford GT's new 3.5L twin-turbocharged Ford Ecoboost V6 engine pumps out 647 hp (656 PS; 482 kW) at 6,550 rpm and 550 ft·lb (746 Nm) 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. Equipped with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox delivering power to the rear wheels, the 2017 Ford GT can do 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 216 mph (347 km/h), making it Ford's fastest production car ever.

Performance Edit

The 2017 Ford GT basically stands as the fastest road-legal Ford in the series. The 2017 Ford GT features excellent all-round stats for its class, with great acceleration, supercar-class handling, best-in-class top speed, and decent braking. Its top speed is the highest for any Ford car, hitting 228 mph (367 km/h), well above its real-life top speed of 216 mph (347 km/h). The GT's sports tires and active aerodynamics work together to give the car the ability to tackle difficult corners with ease and brake to a stop quicker than most cars; the GT covers at most 262 ft (80 m) to brake to a stop from any speed up to 100 mph (161 km/h), giving it ample time to approach the corner correctly.

The 2017 Ford GT mainly rivals the Pagani Huayra, Ferrari 488 GTB, Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, and Ferrari 458 Speciale.

The 2017 Ford GT Horizon Edition is a heavily tuned variant of the 2017 Ford GT, upgraded to S2 998 and given the 6.5L V12 engine swap. It has an extremely high top speed, let alone the fourth fastest car in the game: 266 mph (428 km/h). This makes the 2017 Ford GT Horizon Edition the best-performing Modern Supercar in the game, given that it has already been optimized for maximum downforce on both front and rear and for optimal performance.
