The Ford GT
This is what true innovation looks like. From its 3.5-litre EcoBoost technology to its ultra-efficient aerodynamics, the Ford GT is the culmination of everything great from Ford. And it’s the same passion for innovation that can be seen throughout their entire performance vehicle line up.
This Ford GT is the ultimate expression of form following function. Its teardrop-shape body is the result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. Its carbon-fibre body and its - 650 BHP twin-turbocharged, intercooled 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine are the ultimate expressions of technological innovation. Whether on the road or on the track, every single element of the Ford GT was designed to deliver the extraordinary speed and exceptional handling found only in purpose-built racing cars.
Long suspension arms and inboard damper packaging deliver track-capable vehicle dynamics - an example of Ford Performance engineers exploring suspension design for future Ford Performance vehicles.
The lightweight body is made of carbon fibre. Aluminium structures minimise the weight of the high-strength sub frames.
The rear wing is built into the overall aerodynamic design of the fuselage, so it enhances airflow even when not deployed. When deployed, it can even change shape to optimize airflow and squeeze out just that extra bit of performance.
A great example of the engineering ingenuity that went into the Ford GT, the buttresses add strength to the chassis and guide airflow over the car while contributing to drag reduction and efficient airflow management. They also reduce the coefficient of drag and contribute to the downforce that optimises handling and performance.
