EcoBoost Ford GT Pushes 600hp And A New Age For Ford

This is NOT the new EcoBoost Ford GT that was just released at the Detroit Auto Show this week!
I repeat, NOT the new Ford GT

This is!! >> What do you think?


I think the rear end could have been a bit more sexy, I know it's designed for a purpose, but it's really ugly. The rear spoiler is active though, and it is an engineering miracle that Ford was able to put this out there to compete with the big dogs.




It's almost like the McLaren P1 and the Lamborghini Aventador made a red headed step child........called the EcoBoost Ford GT.

With the rear side vents for the mid engine design, aggressive lines like a Lamborghini, and it not being a "hybrid" car, it is very impressive that Ford could bring a 6 cylinder to the big boys table.
It will be interesting to see a 600hp Ford go up against 700hp Lambo's and other supercars. I just hope its not a laughing stock with all this hype.

From Ford --"The GT features an all-new, port/direct dual fuel-injection setup to improve engine response, plus a low-friction roller-finger-follower valvetrain. The twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 will be paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle for near-instantaneous gear changes and exceptional driver control."



"An F1-style steering wheel integrates all necessary driver controls, creating a stalkless steering column that allows uncluttered access to the transmission paddle-shift controls. A fully digital and configurable instrument cluster provides a wealth of driver-focused data. The display is configurable for multiple driving environments and different driving modes." --
