  • 2017 Ford GT has 647 horsepower and does 216 mph

The full spec sheet for the Ford GT is out, and the newest American supercar will be the fastest vehicle to wear a Ford badge.

The twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 found in the Ford GT produces an SAE-certified 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque.

It's thanks, too, to the carbon-fibre supercar's incredible low dry weight of just 3,045 lbs.

Dave Pericak, Ford Performance's global director, said: "Our expectation has always been that the EcoBoost V6 would perform exceptionally well in the Ford GT - both in terms of power as well as aerodynamic efficiency". That's a shame, but if we can't have one, neither can he. How much exactly the already-selected prospective owners will be paying for the privilege to drive this thing, though we know it's around $450,000. "But as we did the simulations and testing on the mules, we thought it was worth reinvesting some of that [weight] into the active systems, specifically the active aero and the active suspension".

The EPA has answered this question at long last, revealing that its 3.5-liter EcoBoost allows the 2017 Ford GT to achieve 11 mpg city/18 miles per hour highway/14 mpg combined. Also, Ford spent some time on the road course of Calabogie Motorsports Park in Ontario, Canada, which happens to be near the Multimatic production facility where every Ford GT is built.

After years of keeping auto fans in the dark, Ford has finally released the official specifications of the GT supercar.

The new Ford GT is going to have a pumping engine that will have the ability to provide a power of 647bhp.it will allow a torque of 550 lb.ft. and a massive top speed of 216mph. the vehicle will have a turbocharged 3.6 liter V 6 supercharged engine.

The GT lapped in 2:09.8, which was a second faster than the McLaren (2:10.8) and more than three seconds faster than the Ferrari (2:12.9), said Ford in a statement. Even with the race cars-sometimes we'd like to get a little more heat in the tires.
