2017 Ford GT – The future is here! Do you remember when we were kids and were watching those pictures of superb cars of the future? Well, now we can meet those supercars in person. Many expected that Ferrari was going to be the leader in this field, but there are a few automakers which offer same quality for less amount of money. One of them is Ford. Ford was even considering the acquisition of Ferrari and was so close to signing a contract.
However, at the end, Ferrari withdrew itself from the story. In turn, Ford started designing its own supercars and the most popular among them is GT. The latest model, 2017 Ford GT, is going to be released in the following several months thus we decided to present this stunning vehicle. It definitely takes after Ferrari’s cars, such as Ferrari Enco for instance, but when you take a closer look, you realize how huge the difference is. Only design is similar, but everything else is unique.
2017 Ford GT Specs and Engine
Plenty of things are still unknown but are expected to be released soon. One of the few things we certainly know is that a 3.5-liter twin-charged six-cylinder EcoBoost is going to be placed under the hood of 2017 Ford GT. However, this is the only certain thing regarding powertrain. Power, torque, speed and acceleration are being kept of record but thanks to our sources we managed to get rough estimations.
Reportedly the 3.5l is coming with an output of 600 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. This is just a rough guess, but the real figures should be around these numbers. With such a power it can easily compete with Ferrari and other automakers in this field. The 2017 Ford GT is not just powerful but fast as well. Estimated 0-60 mph time is 3.2 seconds while it can reach 200 mph (we hope you won’t ever need to develop such speed on the road).
Contrary to previous years, Ford decided to go with the rear-wheel drive setup for the first time. All previous models had all-wheel-drive orientation hence it’ll be interesting to see how is new GT going to behave on the road.
Interior and Exterior
And now – what you all have been waiting for. When people see a car like this, they are usually less interested in what is hidden under the bonnet, and they immediately go to this section. Generally, design is similar to some cars manufactured by Ferrari and McLaren. This means that focus was on aerodynamics since designers were putting a lot of effort in creating as faster car as possible. You may notice that the front part takes after GT40. At the back, there are two huge exhaust pipes and rear fenders. The 2017 Ford GT is definitely one of the most attractive and well-designed cars ever manufactured.
Cabin follows the exterior. This means it is wrapped in finest materials and has a futuristic look. Contrary to the majority of vehicles, new Ford GT has seats directly connected to the chassis. This is a very unusual way of designing seats, but it’s not the first time we see it. The steering wheel was specially created for the 2017 Ford GT and was inspired by Formula 1. Such vehicle comes with cutting-edge technology. Everything you can think of is there: advanced LCD panel, climate control, cameras, etc. All in all, this car is one of the greatest vehicles ever produced.
2017 Ford GT Price and Release Date
Unfortunately, only 250 copies are of the 2017 Ford GT are going to be produced. There’s no chance that we’ll see it this year. The best prediction tells us it will hit the market in the first quarter of 2017. Price is staggering! According to certain estimations, it’s going to cost $100,000, or even more than that.
