Ford reaches Detroit Auto Show with 2017 Ford GT
Ford reaches Detroit Auto Show with many powerful cars including 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor and there is all new 2017 Ford GT supercar. The two-seater car looks very sexy and has many powerful specs to compete other supercars. The Ford has replaced supercharged 5.4 liter V8 engine by a twin turbocharged 3.5 liter V6 engine. Though the Ford GT 2017 can produce 600 horsepower due to the six powerful cylinders, so the new GT 2017 will be faster than the old GT 2005 that houses supercharged 5.4-liter V8 engine and produces 550 horsepower. So the Detroit Auto Show has something from Ford for supercar enthusiast.
Carbon fiber will be used to the passenger compartment, and combination of carbon fiber and aluminum will be used for the front and rear sections of the Ford GT. The ride height of the car can be changed with the help of pushrod and torsion bar suspension. Even the Ford GT has an active rear aero spoiler that can vary its angle and height for downforce according to the speed and conditions.
The Ford GT 2017 is one of the best concept of Automobile Engineering as there are many unique features including its aero spoilers, and air intake tubes on the both sides that passes air through an air intercooler and takes it on both rear wheels to keep them cool. The street racing car features two exhaust on the rear bumper that looks like jetfighter exhaust.
The Ford has not unveiled the specs and price of the GT though we can predict few things such as torque which is expected around 500 lb-ft. The Ford GT 2017 has 20 inch simple black wheels covered by Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup, and carbon ceramic breaks. The twin turbocharged 3.5 liter V6 engine gives power to rear wheels through a dual clutch seven speed auto transmission. A touch screen display could be seen from outside of the GT and the cabin has buttons to ignite the engine as well as to select transmission type.
