The Ford GT is only the most hotly awaited supercar in a generation. The last Ford GT was an icon, but this one serves to indicate that Ford isn’t going to be synonymous with V-8 power any longer. The aluminum and carbon fiber Ford GT’s engine delivers 600hp, but it’s from a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6.
What Does Ford Say?
“As we at Ford drive innovation into every part of our business, it’s worth remembering that our first innovation as a company was not in a laboratory, but on the racetrack,” said Mark Fields, Ford president and chief executive officer, referring to Henry Ford’s win of a 1901 car race that inspired financial backers to invest in his company. “We are passionate about innovation through performance and creating vehicles that make people’s hearts pound.”
