    The new Ford GT should be the “quickest Ford creation automobile on the tune ever,” in line with a statement from the company on Wednesday.

    The specs of the vehicle are what make it so spectacular. the new supercar has 647 hp and 550 lb-toes of torque on tap, a 3.5-liter V6 Eco Boost engine, and a good pace of 216 mph, in line with Ford.

    The mid-installed engine points a 9.0:1 compression ratio, which is mated to a 7-speed twin-grab transmission.

    “The Ford GT is all about efficiency,” stated Raj Nair, Ford government vice chairman, global product development and chief technical officer. “We carried out appreciable weight reductions with the carbon fiber structure. We then reinvested some of that rate reductions into where it counts most – performance, principally, the lively dynamics. The outcome is an excellent faster motor vehicle.”

    “We actually may have gotten extra fuel economic system,” Nair said, “however we tuned it for horsepower and throttle response.”

    “We completely looked at the efficiency metrics,” Nair persisted. “The fuel economic system is what it's.”

    Dave Pericak, international director, Ford efficiency noted they are “very pleased.”

    “Our expectation has at all times been that the Eco Boost V6 would perform mainly well within the Ford GT –- both in terms of power as well as aerodynamic efficiency,” Pericak said. “We demonstrated and developed this powertrain during the Daytona Prototype race motor vehicle that ran in IMSA for 2 seasons, closing season racing with Ford GT. we're extremely pleased with how it performs, each on the tune and on the street.”

    Whereas the price has no longer been officially introduced, it is speculated that it could come in at around $four hundred, 000, according to autoweek.com. The McLaren 675LT is available in at $376,000 and the Ferrari 488 GB is available in at $245,000.
