The pinnacle of the Ford Performance line-up, the all-new Ford GT is an ultra-high-performance supercar that serves as a technology showcase for EcoBoost performance, aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fibre construction.
The Ford GT delivers one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car ever made with a carbon fibre body featuring active aerodynamics and a powerful, fuel-efficient twin-turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine.
All New Ford GT at Le Mans
Ford will return to competitive action at the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in 2016 with an all-new generation of Ford GT race car, half a century after securing a 1-2-3 finish at the prestigious race with the iconic Ford GT40 in 1966.
The Ford GT race car will compete in the LM GTE Pro class of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race in 2016, and will run the full 2016 schedules of the FIA World Endurance Championship and TUDOR United SportsCar Championship.
The two Ford teams will be operated by Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates. Also joining Ford in this project are Multimatic Motorsports, Roush Yates Engines, Castrol, Michelin, Forza Motorsport, Sparco, and Brembo.
The Ford GT race car is a proof point of Ford innovation and is based on the all-new ultra-high-performance Ford GT supercar unveiled in January 2015 and which was also on show at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
Most powerful production EcoBoost ever
Ford EcoBoost technology is available in every new Ford car, utility and light-duty pickup in North America beginning this year.EcoBoost engines power a growing number of Ford performance models, including the new Mustang, just-announced F-150 Raptor, as well as Fiesta ST and Focus ST.
Based on the same race-proven engine architecture serving Ford’s IMSA Daytona Prototype endurance racing efforts, the next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in the GT features a wide powerband with impressive time-to-torque characteristics.
