The High-Performance Ford GT Supercar

February 9th, 2015 by

Ford GTThe very first Ford GT made its debut in 2002 and has been known as a popular exotic sports car ever since. During the recent North American International Auto Show in Detroit, an all-new Ford GT made its first formal appearance, and critics and drivers alike couldn’t have been more impressed. All of us at River View Ford are thrilled about this unveiling, and we hope to be able to offer the model to drivers around Plainfield and Naperville someday. Fortunately, this supercar is expected to go into production sometime in 2016.

What’s the Ford GT Made Out Of?

Believe it or not, the GT is made almost entirely out of carbon fiber and aluminum. The GT’s fiber and aluminum body reduces its overall weight and in turn improves handling, braking, acceleration, efficiency, and overall performance. Ford has designed the GT to showcase one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car on the market.

What Kind of Engine Will It Have?

As far as the engine is concerned, the GT is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost that delivers over 600 hp. It comes equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and rear-wheel drive.

What other Features Will It Have?

The GT is packed with plenty of unique features, including a two-door coupe body shell, 20-inch wheels, adjustable steering wheel and pedals, a variety of steering wheel-mounted controls, and an racing-style torsion bar with pushrod suspension. It was built with active aerodynamics in order to reduce drag while accelerating and increase it during braking. The all-new GT demonstrates Ford’s dedication to new technology as well as the automaker’s ability to constantly innovate.
