Faster than Ferrari and McLaren?


In January 2015 Ford surprised at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit the audience with the new edition of the GT. This has been a good two years, and the car has been produced since last month. However, Ford did not yet provide official information on technical data and driving performance. Now the long overdue numbers have finally arrived. As expected, the new Ford GT will be extremely fast and extremely powerful.

656 hp and 745 Newton meters
, the dry weight of 4.76 meters long and 2.24 meters wide (with door mirrors) Ford GT is 1385 kg. The fact that a 3.5-liter V6 Twinturbo engine is used in the engine room was already known. Not that this unit produces 656 HP at 6250 rpm and reaches its maximum torque of 745 Newtonmeter at 5900 tours. The top speed is given by Ford at 347 km / h, the average consumption is almost 17 liters per 100 kilometers (according to US-American cycle).

Fast lap time and little trunk
A 0-100 km / h time Ford initially owes us. There are comparable times, because the manufacturer has already sent the GT through the Calabogie Motorsports Park. The car needed 2: 09.8 minutes for the approximately five kilometer race track in Ottawa. A Ferrari 458 Speciale (2: 12.9 minutes) and a McLaren 675LT (2: 10.8 minutes) were each a few seconds slower. And where we are at small numbers: a holiday with lots of luggage you can forget with the Ford GT. The luggage compartment holds only eleven liters.
