Stunning the world upon its unveiling at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford’s second iteration of the modern GT proved that the company could still produce a world-beating, mid-engine supercar, and Ford intended to prove this in the crucible of motorsports—specifically at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Fitted with a 647-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine mated to a seven-speed Getrag dual-clutch transmission, the GT could race to 60 mph from a standstill in less than 3.0 seconds on the way to a top speed of 216 mph.
Prioritizing low weight and aerodynamic efficiency, the car’s bodywork ingeniously channeled air to its engine and brakes while maximizing downforce. Anchored by Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers and huge 15.5-inch rotors up front, the GT also employed hydraulic power steering, making for a racecar that by every account provided satisfying feedback to the driver. Efficient architecture was so prioritized that the sport seats were fixed rather than adjustable, and the pedal box and steering wheel were designed to adjust around the driver rather than vice versa.
Demand for Ford’s newest supercar was (and remains) insatiable; applications outnumbered available chassis allotments by nearly tenfold at the model’s official launch.
Ford implemented a stringent application process, handpicking loyal Ford enthusiasts and mandating that they keep their cars for an extended period. Only 1,350 GT examples are planned through the 2022 model year, with production being handled by Multimatic of Markham, Ontario, Canada. As such, the current GT iteration is a far rarer and more potent offering than previous, with nearly 2,700 fewer examples scheduled than the 2005–2006 GT model.
