When people think “really cool supercars,” Ferrari usually comes to mind. But another company beginning with “F” is hoping to make that a thing of the past.
Today Ford announced the all-new GT supercar, and it’s possibly the coolest car the company’s ever produced. The GT features “advances in light-weighting, aerodynamics and ultra-efficient EcoBoost engine.” The engine, which produces 600 horsepower, is the most powerful Ford’s ever created. And while they’ve described a number of other technological innovations that will make the GT drive great, for some people the look is all that matters. And the GT definitely stands that test as well.
Don’t pull out the wallet or free up financing to purchase the car just yet. Ford won’t begin production until the end of the year, with hopes for the all-new GT to hit the market in 2016.
Finally, a reason to talk about an american car company in a presidential election year that doesn’t involve a bailout.
