“The Ford GT is all about performance. We achieved considerable weight savings with the carbon fiber architecture. We then reinvested some of that savings into where it counts most – performance, specifically, the active dynamics. The result is an even faster car.” – Raj Nair, Ford Executive vice president, global product development and chief technical officer.

Ford GT Engine Power and Performance

Powering the new Ford GT is the third-generation version of the company’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine. This high-output version of the engine has been designed push the EcoBoost’s performance to the absolute max. The end result is an engine that produces 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. This is the highest output ever for an engine in the EcoBoost line.

All of that power translates to a top speed of 216 miles per hour. This makes the GT the fastest production car to ever wear the Ford badge.

    The GT made a name for itself in the 1960s, and the nameplate returned to Ford for the 2005 and 2006 models. Since then, the vehicle has truly evolved into a supercar, evident by it’s $100,000+ price tag.
    The company has made some changes to the third-generation GT, prioritizing handling and track capabilities in their 2017 model. The result? Not only one of Ford’s most impressive cars ever, but perhaps one of the most innovative cars to ever be released. For more information about the 2017 Ford GT Wishlist checkout.

    Skype has opened its online-centered buyer beta towards the entire world,
    after introducing it broadly within the United states and You.K.
    previously this calendar month. Skype for Website also now
    can handle Chromebook and Linux for instant messaging communication (no voice
    and video but, those require a connect-in installment).

    The increase from the beta brings help for an extended list of different
    languages to help strengthen that worldwide user friendliness
