Behind The Scenes 2017 Ford GT Design

Unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January of 2015, the 2017 Ford GT was a smash hit! With an almost entirely carbon fiber chassis tub and bodywork that has been hand-laid, this monster is not just a example of beauty but hand made craftsmanship as well.  That carbon fiber drops the weight on this vehicle down to astronomically low levels, so much so that chief engineer Jamal Hameedi said the GT is targeting the "best power-to weight ratio of any car on the market."  Although Ford has yet to reveal the actual weight, Ford has promised to…

We reported on the rumors earlier this year, but now we finally get to see the real deal! That's right the Ford GT is returning this year!  Although it does bear a strong resemblance to the Ford GT that inspired us growing up, the internals have been upgraded to the latest cutting edge technology. The supercharged V8 is now gone, replaced by a Ecoboost engine. But this is not just any old Ecoboost, this is a twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 engine with 'more than' 600bhp pushing those rear wheels.  And although we don't have exact figures yet, you…
