January 13, 2015

The Ford has stolen all the eyes and limelight of the Detroit Motor show with an all-new Ford GT supercar has surprised the press and public alike.

The new Ford GT is all set to go on sale in 2016, features carbon-fibre body and powered by 600bhp 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine. It fairly looks similar to the last model – it’s still very low, tear-dropped shaped with aggressive gaping grille at the front but under the skin is very different.

The new GT has been built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the GT finishing line of 1-2-3 win at the 1966 Le Mans..
