Ford has taken its restricted, GT supercar and turned it right into a full-fledged observe automobile that’s as succesful if no more succesful than any GT3 automobile presently available on the market. In doing so, it elevated energy output from the three.5-liter V-6 hidden behind the seats to 700 horsepower, 53 ponies greater than the road-going mannequin and 200 ponies greater than the Ford GT Le Mans. Because of some severe weight discount (round 200 kilos), revised suspension, and a few loopy aerodynamics, the Ford GT can pull 2 Gs when cornering. To place this into perspective, the Koenigsegg One:1 was capable of pull 1.7 Gs in lateral acceleration on the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. This outright efficiency and loopy design are all attainable as a result of Ford didn’t adhere to any racing rules.
