The 5.4 litre powerplant is Supercharged and churns out 550 horsepower and an even 500 lb-ft of torque. This power is guided through a 6 speed manual gearbox and allows the GT to accelerate from 0-60 mph in only 3.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 205 mph. It can complete the 1/4 mile in roughly 11 and a half seconds.
As on the historic race car, the Ford GT aluminum body panels are unstressed. Instead of the steel or honeycomb-composite tubs used in the 1960s, the Ford GT team developed an all-new aluminum space frame as the foundation. The new Ford GT is sexy, sophisticated and very, very quick.
