Ford is producing a handful of the new 2017 GT with just 500 units for two years. Ford is making sure only a select few get their hands on it and who are serious about owning the GT and not for profit.
The new Ford 2017 GT misses out on two cylinders, so it has been tuned down from V8 to V6. Many enthusiasts might find it bizarre, however, the video below that Ford Performance has ensured the V6 sounds like a demon and fans do not miss out on the V8.
At the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance the Ford GT V6 has been filmed with the sound and revving of the '66 GT Heritage Edition, painted in black and looks right at home.
The Ford GT will be powered by a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine which can churn out 592bhp of power in the final production model. Prices are rumored to be in the range of $450,000 (Rs. 3 crores approx.).
The 2017 Ford GT V6 once launched will rival the likes of Lamborghini Aventador or a Ferrari F12. Currently, 7,000 application has been received, Ford initially was to manufacture just 500 of them, however, with the kind of demand, Ford will increase the production of the same.
Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance said, "While we can't build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of our most loyal Ford ambassadors, we want to keep Ford GT exclusive, but at the same time we know how vital this customer is to our brand."
