The Blue Oval surprised everyone at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit back in 2015 when they introduced the prototype of the new GT – and now after deliveries have already started we finally get the complete specifications sheet.
So, we now know the biturbo 3.5-liter V6 engine packs a meaty 647 horsepower (482 kilowatts) at 6,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 550 pound-feet (745 Newton-meters) from 5,900 rpm and in coupe form the GT tips the scales at 3,054 pounds (1,385 kilograms), dry. This is now the most powerful EcoBoost engine Ford has ever made, so in turn this is the brand’s quickest production model as it will max out at no less than 216 mph (347 km/h). This is in line with the Easter Egg from the company, revealed when they touted the car’s all-digital dashboard.
If you really need to know all the numbers, the GT supercar will return just 11 miles per gallon in the city and 18 mpg on the highway for a combined 14 mpg, according to the EPA estimation. Ford is also giving us more numbers: the track lap time at Calabogie Motorsports Park in Canada came in at 2:09.8, which is quicker than a McLaren 675LT (2:10.8) and a Ferrari 458 Speciale (2:12.9). There’s one catch – the 250 units per year supercar still has no official sprint time for the zero to 60 / 62 mph speed.
