2017 Ford GT was developed in a basement to keep it secret image

Ford has disclosed some details on the new GT supercar announcing that this has been developed in a basement in order to be kept a secret.

A month after being officially unveiled during the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the 2017 Ford GT is being highlighted with some new details. According to a recent report, the model in question has been concealed in a basement where only a few employees had access and this meant that the entire project was kept a secret, at its best.

“A lot of people probably knew something was going on, but no one actually knew what the project was. This was probably a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get to do a vehicle like this. I’m still pinching myself that we’re actually doing it”, said the Ford global design chief, Moray Callum.

The brand new Ford GT will be hitting the production line in late 2016, which will be making it a 2017 model year. The supercar has a truly evolutionary and appealing design which is making it look instantly recognizable. It packs a mid-mounted turbo V8 under its hood, which is producing a total output of 600 HP (447 kW), connected to a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which is sending power to the rear-wheel drive. Ford kept the performance specifications of the supercar in the shadows at Detroit but chances are these will be fully revealed closer to its production date.
