This new Supercar platform has far exceeded all expectations of its predecessors. Although these are the basic “concept” specs, Ford has left us with our jaw dropped in awe and wanting more. The new Ford GT has been redesigned in every way from the previous generations. The technology of the chassis and frame alone with its plethora of hand-laid carbon fiber and aluminum construction is something that Ford will most likely carry over into future vehicles.
Outside the car aerodynamics is the name of the game. This Ford GT will feature the most efficient and functional airflow profile of any production vehicle according to Ford. There is no word on overall weight of the Ford GT as of yet, but with its estimated 600 twin turbo Ecoboost power plant and construction of the body and chassis, we think this will be above and beyond what anyone had thought of. Ford's global performance vehicle chief engineer Jamal Hameedi started that his team was targeting the best power-to-weight ratio of any car on the market. Like other supercar models in the past, functional downforce components will come into play for the new Ford GT. The wing can both rise and tilt and offer extra downforce and drag when needed acting as a brake of sorts. Speaking of brakes, the carbon ceramic Brembo setup will allow it to take any track surface in the world with ease. The suspension of the Ford GT is an ‘active” one Ford states. This Ford GT can lower itself at higher speeds for improved aerodynamics and handling. Overall we are beyond excited to see what Ford has brought to the table, and are ready for the future to come.
