Supercars have been around since vehicles first emerged. Manufacturers have always challenged themselves, trying to outdo one another in the everlasting race to create the most exciting supercar in the world. Today we will talk about new 2016 Ford GT.
Ford GT first appeared on the scene in 2003. It received universal acclaim and sold about 4,038 units during its production run from 2003 to 2007. Inspired by Ford’s 1960’s Ford GT40, the vehicle looked rather impressive. It featured a rather sporty appearance reminiscent of classic racing vehicles from the 1960’s.
The production of the first generation GT ended in 2007 and it wasn’t until 2015 when the second generation GT was announced.
Revealed at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, the all-new GT received a well-deserved makeover. It looks modern, it feels fresh and it looks aggressive enough to please anyone passionate about supercars.
The new GT is powered by a newly designed 3.5 litre twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine.
Only 200 units are expected to be made, each costing about $400,000.
Ford GT marks the 50th anniversary of the original GT40 winning the 1966 Hours of Le Mans. It is also expected to run in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans to celebrate GT40’s victory all those years ago.
