The iconic GT returns after a 10-year hiatus

The Ford GT40 was a purpose-built car that was designed to put Enzo Ferrari in his place at Le Mans, and it did just that. Unfortunately, it was only produced for two years before being discontinued but, for 2018, Ford debuted the second generation that will be known as the Ford GT.

On the outside, there are plenty of hints that point back to the GT40, like the overhang at the front fascia and the air intakes behind the rear doors, but otherwise, the car is sleeker and looks much more modern and supercar-ish. Inside, the car is built for control and usability. The seats are integrated into the shell to give the drive a better overall feel, and the car features an adjustable steering wheel and pedals. There are two display screens and soft touch surfaces here and there. While it was expected to use a turbocharged version of the flat-plane crank V-8 from the GT350 Mustang, Ford decided to go with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost unit with twin turbochargers. No specifics have been provided as of yet, but it should deliver at least 600 horses.

The best news so far is the fact that Ford decided to skip going with an all-wheel-drive setup, and instead decided to stick with the traditional rear-wheel-drive orientation, making the new Ford GT a true driver’s car. All told, the new Ford GT is hands down, the best supercar to ever be developed in the history of the blue oval brand. With a legendary history behind it and modern materials throughout, the Ford GT is sure to recreate and surpass the Ford GT40’s success.
