The Ford GT 2017 finally lets know their numbers, it has 656 hp and reaches 348 km / h
And more than two years ago we met the new Ford GT at the Detroit Motor Show , but the American brand had not yet given us the final numbers of this super high – flying, so far. Finally we know all the details and I anticipate that are figures of scandal. How about 348 km / h maximum speed for the fastest production Ford history?
The engine 3.5 – liter V6 Ecoboost (biturbo), which promised “over 600 hp” finally is a power of 656 hp at 6,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 745 Nm from 5,900 laps. And all this brute force to a two – seater coupe that has a dry weight of 1,385 kilograms . From here, the performance of such an ‘appliance’ you can imagine. Brutal.
Ford moment not loose garment on the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h, 0 to 200 km / h from 0 to 300 km / h, but compared their model with other beasts of European origin. According to the manufacturer of Michigan, the Ford GT (2: 09.8) it is faster in the circuit Calabogie Motorsports Park (Canada) that a McLaren 675 LT (2: 10.8) , or a Ferrari 458 Speciale (2: 12.9).
In addition to its great power to weight ratio of 2.11 kilograms per hp, the Ford GT is able to set good times in circuit thanks to its “active dynamic”, consisting of suspension and active aerodynamics. And while future owners will care little, Ford announced an average consumption in American cycle of 16.8 liters (14 mpg), with figures of 21.3 liters in city (11 mpg) and 13 liters in the extra urban consumption (18 Mpg).
“ Our goal has always been that the V6 Ecoboost surrender dramatically in the Ford GT, both in terms of power and aerodynamic efficiency. We tested and developed this engine in the prototype racing for Daytona that ran two seasons of the IMSA, the last a Ford GT. We are delighted how it behaves, both track and road , “said Dave Pericak, global director of Ford Performance.
In recent months much has been said of the Ford GT, due to its box – digital instruments which, incidentally, revealed the maximum speed of model without making too much noise- or configuration kit carbon fiber receiving the lucky customers chosen to receive one. The downside is that it only manufactured 250 units per year (1,000 in total, over a period of four years) plant in Markham, Ontario, Canada.
