Despite knowing a lot about the car already, Ford Motor Company, has not released any performance specs of it’s new GT supercar. Well we can now confirm that the twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 pumps out 647 horsepower (475 kW) at 6,250 rpm. This mid-mounted V6 is mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Drive is to the rear wheels only, via a limited-slip differential.
The top speed is 216 mph (347 km/h), making the GT the fastest production car in Ford history and during testing it proved to be faster than a McLaren 675LT and the Ferrari 458 Speciale around the Calabogie Motorsports Park. The GT clocked a time of 2:09.8 around the 3.1-mile track. The McLaren’s time was 2:10.8 and the Ferrari’s 2:12.9.
