2017 Ford GT will continue its legendary predecessor that has been produced from 1964 to 1969 as GT40 and after four decades, the company considered changing its name to be simpler that was Ford GT. Later, the production was ended too soon because the car could not support the high competition on the market. Currently we have heard on International Auto Show in Detroit that 2017 Ford GT is ready as the new version that is designed to deal with other sport cars.

2017 Ford GT will be available with new and super-light bodyweight that is made of aluminum and also carbon fiber. The engine is one of the most interesting parts to tell. There is a lot expectation that the company will support this new version with some V8 unit that could be the same as the engine for the new Mustang GT350, but in fact the company has considered installing smaller unit which is EcoBoost engine 3.5 liter that is also used by IMSA Daytone Prototype endurance racer. This engine is the second generation that is not too large but quite great to offer powerful output. Two turbocharged engines are able to produce more than 600 horsepower.
