Ford GT Unveiled

January 14th, 2015

FordGTAt the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the all-new Ford GT Carbon Fiber Supercar drew attention with it’s striking exterior aerodynamics and it’s EcoBoost upgrade.

The GT is fit with innovations that set new standards for Ford performance: light-weighting, impeccable aerodynamics, and ultra-efficient EcoBoost are at the top of the list.

The lightweight carbon fiber construction provides a wide range of performance advantage including better acceleration, handling, braking, safety and efficiency. The new lightweight advanced composites will help set the stage for Ford’s entire product lineup moving forward. Because of carbon elements, the GT will have one of the best weight ratios of any production car.

“The GT is the ultimate execution of an enthusiast supercar,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “GT includes innovations and technologies that can be applied broadly across Ford’s future product portfolio – another proof point that Ford continues raising the performance bar while ultimately improving vehicles for all of our customers.”

The aerodynamics of the car are seen externally by the deployable rear spoiler and sleek two-door coupe body shell. The design limits drag, yet aids downforce and stability. From its optimum tear-drop shape to its aircraft-inspired fuselage and visibility-enhancing curved windshield, every slope and shape is designed to minimize drag and optimize downforce. When propelled by the powerful EcoBoost production engine, which is twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 producing more than 600 horsepower, this vehicle is Ford’s most extreme offering.

The vehicle is infused with race-proven technology, fit for those looking for that ultra-high-performance supercar. Production for the GT will begin in 2016.
