12 Ford GT

Mid-engine supercar to feature exotic-rivalling pricetag

A V6 supercar? You better believe it.

Ford is promising its crazy GT will beat up every other player in the segment – its race-proven 3.5-litre Ecoboost V6 delivers in excess of 450kW through a seven-speed dual-clutch ’box.

Carbonfibre chassis and aluminium subframes keep weight to a minimum, active aero and wildly sculpted bodywork generate huge downforce, and the suspension is so trick Ford won’t even talk about it lest its rivals copy it for their own race cars.

Race cars? Oh yes, Ford is returning to Le Mans to celebrate 50 years since its historic 1-2-3 finish with the original GT40. For more on the new GT see p34.
