Meet The 2017 Ford GT - The Fastest Ford Ever Created
|   Wednesday, February 08, 2017
The Ford company has officially announced that the 2017 Ford GT is the fastest Ford vehicle ever made, as it has the highest top speed and the fastest lap time! The vehicle, which has 647 horsepower and 550 lb. - ft. of torque, also benefits from a brand new 3.5 liter V6. This means that the engine of this 2017 innovative GT is able to produce more horsepower than any other EcoBoost production engine.

Global director of Ford Performance Dave Pericak declared that "Our expectation has always been that the EcoBoost V6 would perform exceptionally well in the Ford GT - both in terms of power as well as aerodynamic efficiency.
Later on, he added that "We tested and developed this powertrain through the Daytona Prototype race car that ran in IMSA for two seasons, last season racing with Ford GT. We are extremely pleased with how it performs, both on the track and on the road." Well, they surely do have reasons to be pleased!

With a top speed of 216 mph, the new 2017 Ford GT is considerably better than its predecessors. In order to get a better idea, let's just think about the fact that this GT is faster on the track than McLaren 675LT and even the 458 Speciale Ferrari – and let's be honest, that is something!

The evidence comes from a professional performance test run with all three models at the Calabogie Motorsports Park in Canada. Having the same driver behind the wheel each time, the tests concluded that the Ford GT finished at 2:09,8, the McLaren finished at 2:10,8 and the Ferrari came in last at 2:12,9.

Executive vice president, global product development and chief technical officer of Ford, Raj Nair, declared that "The Ford GT is all about performance" and, to be honest, we can't really argue with that! "We achieved considerable weight savings with the carbon fiber architecture. We then reinvested some of that savings into where it counts most - performance, specifically, the active dynamics. The result is an even faster car."
