The new Ford GT Supercar debuted at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show and fast is indeed the keyword! With a streamlined structure, and sexy, sleek curves, Ford’s new baby is designed for speed! However, it’s hard to say which is more impressive: its function or beauty.
To a casual observer of the GT in motion, the 2015 Supercar is sure to appear as nothing but a blur. Due in part to the aerodynamic design, but also adding to the power is the 3.5-liter twin turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine. A carbon-fiber driver’s cell and aluminum-alloy sub frames decrease the car’s overall bulk, thus enabling an increased pace.
With the newest addition to its performance lineup, Ford continues its tradition of GT panache. Swing-up clamshell doors give two passengers an extravagant entrance into the smooth and simple interior, each line and angle of the body calculated to reduce drag.
Designed as an homage to the original Ford GT built in 1966 (the original being commissioned by Henry Ford II to win the Le Mans 24-hour race in France), the Ford GT is set to be released next year in celebration of the original’s 50th anniversary.
