2017 Ford GT to get more than 700 HP image

A new report is indicating that the upcoming Ford GT supercar will be packing more than 700 HP from underneath its hood.

The new generation of the Ford GT may have been officially presented to the public back in January, during the 2015 North American International Auto Show, in a world premiere, taking everyone by surprise, but the vehicle is still a long way from hitting the production line because the car manufacturer still has some aces up its sleeve for it. Despite being unveiled officially a few months ago, Ford has remained skeptical on releasing performance figures and the only thing announced was the fact that the supercar will be coming with more than 600 HP from its engine.

Now, according to a recent report published by Car and Driver, the model in question is said to be getting the 3.5 liter V6 twin turbo EcoBoost engine which will be capable of producing a total output of at least 700 HP (515 kW). This will be getting brakes signed by Brembo with carbon ceramic rotors, forged aluminum wheels, four distinct driving modes including the Normal, Sport, Track and Wet, variable damping, active aerodynamics, advanced traction system, stability-control programs and much more. This will be carrying a price of 300,000 euros on the Old Continent and in the United States it will be setting you back for about 400,000 USD. The new Ford GT will be hitting the production line in late 2016 and it will be coming as a 2017 model year.
