The Ford Motor Company revealed its new Ford GT Supercar At 2015 Detroit Auto Show. This new Ford GT supercar got all the typical supercar cues like a mid-mounted engine, a sleek, aerodynamic coupe body and rear-wheel-drive configuration . But instead of the typical V-8 engine found in most performance Fords, including the previous GT, the new generation will come packing an EcoBoost V-6 engine whose twin-turbochargers will help liberate more than 600 horsepower.

Under the lightweight carbon-fibre skin is a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged version of Ford’s EcoBoost V6, generating more than 592bhp. That’s mated to a unique seven-speed dual clutch transmission. From power output alone, the GT should produce performance that strikes fear into the world’s most prominent supercar manufacturers, such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and Mclaren.
Slide into the two-seat cockpit through the scissor doors, and the interior is clearly race-influenced, with seats that are mounted directly to the floor. A huge number of functions are transferred to the F1-style steering wheel, with a configurable digital instrument display behind it.
Prices are yet to be confirmed, but a spokesman steered us towards the Lamborghini Aventador, which costs from £260,000, as a guide. There’s no official word on the size of the production run either, although the spokesman said it would be “significantly more exclusive” than its predecessor that sold a little over 4,000 units between 2004 and 2006.
