Along with the auto show in India, the Chicago Motor Show, also taking place these days, is no less significant in the automotive world. And one of the brightest representatives of the exhibition was the Ford GT supercar, which experts are already finalizing in the production process. So, all in order. The program for the release of the special representative of the American brand is scheduled until 2022. And even not yet assembled cars, which, by the way, will total 1350 copies, already actually have their owners on pre-order. Nevertheless, the company’s engineers continue to improve the supercar, which was presented at the exhibition.
In particular, the EcoBoost V6 3.5 bi-turbo engine was upgraded, which now has new pistons, increased intercoolers and air intakes, a different ignition coil and other technical nuances. And to everything else, a lightweight titanium exhaust system Akrapovič is also installed. As a result of such improvements, the power unit performance is increased from 656 to 669 hp.
n addition, the suspension of the supercar has been changed and two exterior options have appeared. The first of them, called Liquid Carbon, is an unpainted carbon fiber body coated only with transparent varnish with visually visible carbon fibers. And the second is the Gulf Racing color scheme, corresponding to the racing GT40 Fords from the 1968-69 Le Mans marathons. Prices in the US for such supercars start at half a million dollars.
