Ford has just taken EcoBoost, aerodynamics, performance and light-weighting to the next level with its GT Carbon Fiber Supercar. The GT is one of the 12 brand new Ford models expected by 2020 and it stands in line with the Focus RS, Shelby GT350R, Shelby GT350 and F-150 Raptor in the rising Ford Performance lineup.
The GT will start production in 2016 and it will hit the roads only in selected global markets. The model will feature, of course, Ford’s renowned EcoBoost engine in the twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 option, offering more than 600 horsepower.
The all-new GT will have a sleek and aerodynamic two-door coupe body shell, mid-mounted engine and rear-wheel drive. Thanks to the aluminum and carbon fiber, the car will be handled with improved efficiency and will offer outstanding acceleration.
[adsense300gray]Ford has also added technologies which make the GT a supercar: SYNC-3 connectivity system, deployable rear spoiler, structural carbon fiber elements, aluminum front and rear subframes, the next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, all-new, port/direct dual fuel-injection, visibility-enhancing curved windshield, aircraft-inspired fuselage, active rear spoiler which can adjust its pitch angle and height depending on conditions, state-of-the-art chassis, Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires and many more.
Although the engine offers more than 600 horsepower, the automaker did not mention how fast America’s newest supercar will be. We will see the exclusive GT in action at Ford’s 50th anniversary of its GT race cars which placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the 1966 Le Mans 24Hrs.
