Ford’s New GT Goes On An Austrian Road Trip

By November 4, 2017Reviews

The new Ford GT doesn’t redefine performance car boundaries, but it still captured the attention of enthusiasts around the world, amassing a remarkable cult following in the process.

Eager to continue promoting the new mid-engine supercar, Ford provided a pair of Austrian journalists with the keys to the new GT and let them hit the Austrian Alps, exploring every facet of the car.Unlike almost all performance-focused cars on the market, the 2017 Ford GT hasn’t been designed as a road car with some abilities when taken to a racetrack. Instead, the GT was designed for winning its class at the Le Mans 24 Hours and then refined and tamed for road use. Consequently, it is about as close to a race car as you can get.Sitting at the heart of the GT is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine with 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque.
