: ONLY 500 MODELS
After the Oath Ceremony of 45th American President Donald Trump Dwheels brought the story of The American Automaker or we can say that the Real American Blood " The FORD" , which comes in 2017 with its old wine in new bottle , we are talking about the Ford GT . This Ford GT is the ultimate expression of form following function. Its teardrop-shape body is the result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. Its lightweight body is made of carbon fiber and Aluminum structures minimize the weight of the high-strength subframes which help to produced 600-plus horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine are the ultimate expressions of technological innovation.
But Ford only sale 500 GT this year, if you are 501’th customer then you should wait for own a GT in 2018. Prices likely will starts around $400,000.
Power comes not from a supercharged V-8 as in the previous GT, but rather Ford’s next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine. They’re promised it will produce “more than 600 horsepower.” They have to imagine that the GT’s EcoBoost six likely shares at least some componentry with the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 in the 2017 F-150 Raptor, meaning it should have plenty of torque; at least 500 lb-ft. So far as we can tell at this point, there is no hybrid componentry, no complicated electric-boost function, and no kinetic-energy recovery system, just pure, unadulterated horsepower from a beastly gas engine feeding the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Carbon-ceramic brakes haul the prototype down from speed, and 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires are tasked with keeping the car stuck to the pavement.
The car was named the GT (for Grand Touring) with the 40 representing its overall height of 40 inches (1.02 m, measured at the windshield) as required by the rules. Large-displacement Ford V8 engines (4.2-litre, 4.7-litre and 7-litre) were used, compared with the Ferrari V12, which displaced 3.0 litres or 4.0 litres.
The creation of this Ford engineering which were come into existence only when Ford and Ferrari had been in merger negotiations for weeks when a young Ford executive and engineer found himself in the office of Founder Enzo Ferrari. Ford’s attempt to purchase the Italian automaker, dominant at Le Mans, ended then and there as Ferrari unleashed “a tirade that I had never seen or heard before in my entire life and have not done so since,” as one Ferrari employee later described it.
Without complete control over Ford and Ferrari’s racing future, there would be no deal, Ferrari said.
The event was a turning point for Ford’s racing program. In the aftermath, Henry Ford II would set his sights on making Ford the first American auto manufacturer to win at Le Mans.
“My dad wanted to beat Ferrari on its own turf,” says his son Edsel Ford II, now 67 years old. “Period.”
After that company developed, the Ford GT40, would be uniquely suited to find success at Le Mans, an endurance track that stretched over eight miles. To win the 24-hour race, cars needed all-out speed to take advantage of the three-mile-plus Mulsanne Straight, and maneuverability to handle tight corners like the Esses. “To see these cars curving through the Esses was to witness the pinnacle of engineering and human courage,” writes A.J. Baime, author of “Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans.” Ford GT won all three places on the podium in 1966. Victories would follow in ’67, ‘68 and ‘69.
