The new pre-production Ford GT release date is set for late 2016, and this new vehicle has been introduced in a new video released on the Ford Today YouTube Channel.
At the 2015 Detroit Auto Show the new GT concept was shown off, which is hopefully going to be the production car going on sale in 2016. This is said to take on the mighty Porsche 911 GT3 RS and the likes of Ferrari. This will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford GT racing cars, placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
There will be a V6 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost lump, which will be put on show under the see-through viewing panel on the supercar. This engine will produce s staggering 600HP, ford have decided to go for the EcoBoost engine rather than the supercharged V8.
There is also a aluminum-alloy frame and a carbon-fiber driver cell, the seats are fixed but the steering column and pedals are fully adjustable. By keeping the driver in one place and moving the lighter wheel and pedals it keeps the weight distribution at its best.
Ford will also be introducing new models including the new Focus RS, Focus ST, Fiesta ST, F-150 Raptor and Shelby GT350 Mustang.
