The Ford Motor Company has shocked the automotive world with the unveiling of an all-new GT supercar at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
As stunning as it looks, the GT on show in Detroit isn’t a concept to be watered down by the time production rolls around but a preview of the car that will be hitting showrooms sometime in 2016.
It’s got all the typical supercar cues such as a mid-mounted engine, rear-wheel-drive configuration, and a sleek, aerodynamic coupe body.
But instead of the typical V-8 engine found in most performance Fords, including the previous GT, the new generation will come packing an EcoBoost V-6 engine whose twin-turbochargers will help liberate more than 600 horsepower.
Some of the new aspects of the design include updated direct-injection and valvetrain features, aimed at boosting performance and efficiency. The transmission, meanwhile, is a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle.
There’s still a lot of development work to be done, which is why we haven’t heard any official performance numbers just yet. Expect further announcements to be made in the coming months.
