here, I’m going to share my excitement and nervousness to drive ford GT …hell yeah! watch this video
this is designed in commemoration of the older Ford GT than won serval races (24 Hours of Le Mans)
The GT recalls Ford’s historically significant GT40, consecutive four-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans (1966-1969), including a 1-2-3 finish in 1966.
American mid-engine two-seater sports car manufactured and marketed by Ford for the model year 2005 in conjunction with the company’s 2003 centenary and again in redesigned form for the model year 2017.
At the 2017 North American International Auto Show and at the unveiling of the 2015 racing video game Forza Motorsport 6, a new Ford GT was introduced and is set to be produced and released in 2016. It will mark 50 years since the GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans and has run successfully in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans to mark the anniversary, winning the GTE class.
The car is powered by a 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine making 647 hp (482 kW; 656 PS) and 550 lb⋅ft (746 N⋅m) of torque. This engine shares many components with the 2017 F-150 3.5L engine including the heads, block and dual fuel system. Notable differences include larger turbochargers, aluminum intake manifold, custom dry sumped lubrication system, unique camshafts and higher strength rotating & timing drive components. At the time of release, the Ford GT had one of the highest specific power outputs of any production car.
According to Ford, “the GT will exhibit one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car,” thanks to its lightweight carbon fiber construction. Underpinning the GT is a carbon fiber monocoque bolted to the aluminum front and rear subframes covered in carbon fiber body panels. The car also has racing inspired pushrod suspension, active aerodynamics, and dihedral doors. The windshield of the vehicle is made of Gorilla Glass manufactured by Corning, which is also used for smartphone screens. Gorilla Glass is used to reduce the weight of the vehicle by allowing for a thinner windscreen with the same strength.
Production began in December 2016, with Ford planning to build the GT at a rate of one car per day in their new, low-volume assembly facility at Multimatic in Markham, Ontario until October 2020. Vehicles produced in 2017 and 2018 are reserved for selected GT buyers, 2019 vehicles for buyers passed over in the initial selection process, and 2020 vehicles for new customers.
The GT is capable of 0 – 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds, 0 – 100 mph (161 km/h) in 6 seconds, and a top speed of 216 mph (348 km/h).
