Stunning Ford GT In Silver and Racing Stripes At The Chicago Auto Show
Ford revealed their new super car in Detroit last month in “Liquid Blue”. Not everyone was crazy about this new color so there’s good news, it comes in silver and racing stripes too. Better news is that the GT has been confirmed for production at Ford’s factory in Markhan, Ontario.
The new 2017 Ford GT in Liquid Silver is wearing titanium-tinted racing stripes. Not as classically American as the blue, but it’s gorgeous nonetheless. So, let’s discuss what we already know about this automotive beauty, it will be powered by a mid-mounted 3.5 liter twin turbo V6 with “more than 600 horsepower.” It sends all that power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox and blends a carbon fiber monocoque and body panels with aluminum subframes.
The GT, which will go on sale in 2016, is not meant to be a mass-produced and mass-sold car. Company chairman Bill Ford said it would be a ‘halo’ on the Dearborn automaker’s performance cars. Ford plans to release 12 new Ford Performance vehicles over the next five years. Ford plans to release pricing details of the Ford GT supercar at a later date, but analysts are right to expect a steep sticker price. “We will have pricing details closer to launch but the Ford GT will be the most exclusive Ford product ever,” Craig von Essen, of Ford global product communications said. “Main maket competitors to the GT include vehicles such as the Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren 650S and Ferrari 458 Speciale.”
