Background

The Ford GT is the Blue Oval's new supercar - the third iteration of the famous, Le Mans-winning 1960s racer. We've been here before, of course. Ford built a Ferrari-slaying supercar in 2005 too, but it's back in 2017 with a new fire-cracker with racing roots. For more information on the GT, click on our further stories on the links below.

60sec road test

This is a Blue Oval unlike any other. Crafted from carbonfibre and aluminium, the Ford GT is essentially a racer for the road - in keeping with its namesakes' roots. It's predictably light as a result, at 1385kg in Competition Spec. Powered by a highly tuned 3.5-litre V6 Ecoboost turbo, performance is scintillating: 0-60mph takes a blink-and-you'll-miss-it 2.8 seconds and top speed is a claimed 216mph. That's what happens when you strap an all-aluminium engine making 647bhp and 550lb ft amidships. Ride and handling? It feels like the race car it is, with sharp responses, agile steering and a degree of mental toughness required to drive this thing on the road. It's a very focused supercar indeed.
