Jan 13, 2015: Ford unveiled a new version of its iconic GT supercar, shaking up the market for exotic performance cars.
The “ultra-high-performance supercar” will go into production later this year and will be available in certain markets in 2016, the automaker announced Monday at the Detroit Auto Show.
The GT has a 600 horsepower, mid-mounted V6 engine, which the company says is its most powerful production engine ever.
Ford says it set new standards in using carbon fiber and aluminum to make the GT light and fast. The car has an aerodynamic “tear-drop” shape that was inspired by an aircraft fuselage and a curved windshield to help minimize drag.
“We are passionate about innovation through performance and creating vehicles that make people’s hearts pound,” said Mark Fields, Ford president and chief executive officer.
