Whenever writing about exotic car crashes these days we are used to seeing mostly Lamborghinis and Ferraris but every once in a while, things tend to be different. The newest exotic ride to be involved in a crash recently is this Ford GT. According to the guys from the model in question has been driven fast and the guy holding the wheel lost control after the rear tires skidded. The supercar ended up looking like this after hitting an electrical post. Happily no one was injured in the crash and the Ford GT looks salvageable.
The Ford GT was an American mid-engined two-seat supercar, which was produced between 2004 and 2006. The vehicle has been inspired by the GT 40 racing cars of the 1960s and it had a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout. The first generation of the model has been produced in just 4,038 units, in Wixom, Michigan, United States, and it stood at 4,640 mm long, 1,950 mm wide and 1,130 mm tall, weighing 1,520 kg. Power was provided by a 5.4 liter V8 aluminum engine, rated at 550 HP (410 kW) and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint made in 3.5 seconds and a top speed which was electronically limited to 205 mph (330 km/h). The second generation of the supercar has made its debut at the 2015 NAIAS and it will start production next year.
