Ford GT 2017
The second generation Ford GT will be powered by a 3.5 liter Ecoboost engine with twin turbochargers. While there are no specifics as of yet, reports have it that this car will have an output of at least 600 horsepower. It will also be available as a rear-wheel drive instead of an all-wheel drive.
The Ford GT will have a design that is different from its older siblings. Its mid-engine design yields to a long wedge shape. It also has a sloped GT nose with dual ducts, giving it a menacing look. At the back are a set of canon exhaust outlets, with an aggressive rear diffuser on the lower part.
The Ford GT will also incorporate a lot of new features, like carbon fiber wheels. These wheels allow greater design flexibility resulting in improved dynamics, ride quality, and reduced weight.
It will also be the first production vehicle to showcase a gorilla glass windshield. Gorilla glass is a kind of glass that’s thin, light, and damage resistant. It’s the same material used in portable devices like laptops, tablets, and mobile phones.
Ford says that this windshield is a lot thinner than the typical laminate glass, improving handling in the process by lowering the center of gravity of the vehicle. It also improves the windshield in terms of durability as gorilla glass windshield is scratch-resistant.
The new reincarnation of the GT will be available in classic colors like white, black, silver, grey, as well as bright and vivid hues such as liquid blue, liquid red, and triple yellow. Buyers will also have the option to have their units finished in matte black.
