2016 Ford GT

One of the biggest surprises of the 2015 North American International Auto Show, aka Detroit Auto Show, has to be the new Ford GT. A stunning piece of machinery that stole the spotlight from the highly anticipated Acura NSX, the blue oval went through lengths to protect its secrecy. Until two hours before its unveiling, only six specially chosen designers knew about the project. After the show car had been built, it was carefully stored in a storage facility close by and the designers would make nightly visits to check up on the car. The new design retains the classic look of the previous GT and the legendary GT40 while still making a bold statement and sporting a design direction that is less retro and more high tech. The 3.5 liter twin-turbo V6 Ecoboost may seem underwhelming on paper, yet it makes over 600 hp paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. We can’t wait to see how it performs on the road and track.
