Intro

Ford will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Ford GT40 winning the Le Mans in 1966 by releasing the 2017 Ford GT into the world. The new car is from the company’s second generation series and is being promoted as having one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car. Let’s go over the features of the 2017 Ford GT and see for ourselves what innovations it brings to the automotive market.

Exterior

Just one look at the design and it is clear that there’s a lot of focus on aerodynamics. The 2017 Ford GT has a shark nose, a teardrop-shaped cockpit, radical body-side channels, and moveable rear wing which can adjust the pitch and height of the car. The wide front end harkens back to the Ford GT40, but the rest of the car is quite modern. The bridging of the roof to the fenders is aerodynamically formed, with a cross-section that is wing shaped. The buttress adds strength to the chassis and guides airflow over the car. The central tub and bodywork are carbon fiber. Aluminum makes up the front and rear substructures along with most of the suspension. The doors don’t incorporate portions of the roof and hinge up and forward.

Interior

Once you get inside the speed demon the cabin becomes quite narrow. The seats are fixed directly to the tub of the car which means that the driver and passenger will have to sit quite closely beside each other. With the seats being fixed the pedals and the steering wheels are adjustable for the driver’s comfort. A central color touch-screen display augments a digital gauge cluster.

Features

The 2017 Ford GT features the next-generation EcoBoost twin-turbocharged, direct injected 3.5 liter V-6 engine which makes for 600 horsepower. The car also has carbon-ceramic brakes. The 20-inch wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires. Additionally, the windshield is made of high quality hybrid gorilla glass, which is designed to be light, thin, and damage resistant. Furthermore, the flying buttress, through the unique design of the intake tubes, is a neat feature in the 2017 Ford GT. On each side of the car there is a hollow panel housing pipes. These pipes flow from an air-to-air intercooler ahead of each rear wheel. From beneath the Ford GT intake air is scooped up, compressed in each turbocharger, and before going down into the engine it shoots through the intercoolers. Wow!
