Ford uncovered the cutting edge GT at the 2015 Detroit Motor Show. The car gets a complete outline redesign, with insights of the first design remaining true to it. The new GT is the perfect representation of the change in times. While the first was about force being gotten from a huge V8, this one is about weight decrease and force being sourced from a new and smaller motor.
The new GT exhibits one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car.
The GT makes broad utilization of lightweight materials, including carbon fiber and aluminum.

Power for the new car originates from Ford’s commended EcoBoost motor which is present in every new Ford car. After making its way to the likes of Mustang, F-150 Raptor, Fiesta ST and Focus ST, the engine will be present in the GT in its powerful guise ever. The cutting edge twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in the GT will deliver in overabundance of 600 bhp. Transmission obligations will be completed by a 7-speed DCT gearbox.
Production of the 2017 Ford GT begins towards the end of 2016.
The new Ford GT rides on Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires wrapped around 20 inch wheels. Halting force is given by 4 carbon ceramic disc brakes. Within, the driver and traveler seats are coordinated specifically into the carbon fiber passenger cell. The F1-style steering wheel incorporates all essential driver controls, making a stalk-less directing section and it has been done to ease the access to the paddle shifters.
The reborn GT will be propelled in select worldwide markets to commend the 50th commemoration of Ford GT race autos getting the platform positions at the 1966 Le Mans 24 hour race.
