2015 Geneva Motor Show LIVE: 2017 Ford GT supercar image

Ford has officially pulled the wraps off the brand new 2017 GT supercar in an European premiere, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

After introducing the Focus RS, Ford has also shown the brand new GT supercar, for the first time ever on the Old Continent. The model in question has been officially unveiled back in January, at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, and it was then brought to the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, but in a different silver shade. The model shown in Geneva these days is wearing the same appealing blue finish on its body as the one shown in NAIAS, which is also similar to the one of the Focus RS.

The 2017 Ford GT will be hitting the production line by the end of 2016 and this will make it a 2017 model year. Its design is evolutionary and it has some revised lighting units and new graphics, which will put some distance between it and its predecessor. This has a mid-mounted turbocharged V6 engine under its hood, which is capable of producing a total output of 600 HP (447 kW), connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Power is being sent to the rear wheels but details on its performance still stop here as the car manufacturer hasn’t announced any more info on the supercar. According to a company representative, the new Ford GT will be priced similarly to a Lamborghini Aventador. More details on the Detroit supercar are limited at this time.
