this car should've been around 720-750bhp with something akin to an extreme aero pkg. i still like the car, i just dont understand why they made it so track oriented without some real downforce/aero and being the least poweful in its segment

The Ford GT is really a British car (and always has been, its roots trace back to the original GT40) and assembled in Canada. The Ford badge doesn't always make it American. This is no more American than the Chevrolet SS sedan is, and that car is completely Australian. The Ford GT is no more American than the Honda NSX is Japanese.

He retard you know nothing the 2017 Ford GT, and the 2004-2005 Ford GT are both 100% American Ford built sports cars having nothing to do with anything British you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground. In the sixties the original Ford GT-40 was built using a British body even so that's a Ford GT-40 not a Ford GT late model super car. The multimatic factoring Canada builds the carbon fiber body, and a Ford GT Factory in Canada assembles the entire car in a Ford factory having nothing to do with Britain or Canada. How you make the link that the Ford GT is in British car only somebody who's mentally retarded or six years old would say something that ignorant. The United Kingdom has nothing to do in any way whatsoever in the production of the last two versions of the Ford GT. Ford has factories in Canada North America Mexico amongst other places. The Multimatic racing Factory, and team that races Ford City located in Canada. They were chosen because of their special abilities with carbon fiber, and the fact that a carbon fiber body is not going to be built on a assembly line. But the entire car once the body is built is salt inside of a Ford factory in Canada which only makes sense because Multimatic a Ford race team their factory is in Canada. They were chosen to build the carbon fiber body. Ford employees in a Ford factory build Ford GT until they are complete. By your logic any Ford car built that is not built in the US is not is not an American car? Every car manufacturer has factories in other countries.

Chanante  3m ago

I think the real reason of the slow time in 1/4 mile is the large gear ratio for make 348km/h. 650S and 488 have very sort first gears and this makes better aceleration.

 

User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago

Also .353 drag vs .323 for 488.


User avatar

Chanantes  3m ago @Fastedee

That reinforces my arguments more. Since with higher drag has higher top speed.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @Chanantes

Though very small difference in US tests. 0.2 to 100 slower than 488 and 0.6 to 150. 0.3 slower than V10 plus to 170. From 60-100 it ties 488 at 3.2 seconds. Hopefully there will be European tests as well.


User avatar

Grotiare  4m ago

Should this website separate the base Ford GT with the competition gt or are they too similar? Apparently that gt is 3000 lbs w/o fluids, I'm guessing it's 100 to 200 lbs lighter than base.

Racing GT is lighter but less powerful by over a 100 bhp due to regulations

Why is the 0-170 time barely quicker than the Charger Hellcat? Look at the 150-170 gap

 

User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

Hellcat is around 25 seconds to 170 mph.


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago @Fastedee

Car and Driver had the Charger at 23.1.


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago

I mean there's no way this car is making LESS horsepower than the 2013 Shelby MMUUSSTTAANNGG GT500. This is a supercar from Ford, the other's a $60k ($40k used) muscle car.

 

User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

Oh I think the 5.8 l DOHC GT500 is making 510-520 at wheels vs 530-540 for 3.5 l GT. If it made too much power it would be overstressed. Track cars are about durability. It already easily outaccelerates the AMG GT-R, ZO6, GT3-R and ACR. It isn't about competing with a Chiron or 720 s at the dragstrip.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

Also Car and Driver think it would have lapped 2:41.5 to 2:42 if they had had more time with the car.


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago @Fastedee

No, the GT500 made 609 at the wheels


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @hostboy

3800 lb car would be way faster. E 63 is way heavier and maybe has 600 at wheels.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago

I was wrong. MT dynoed GT500 at 587 bhp at wheels with 500 lbs of torque from 2000 rpm. DB11 must be putting at least 560 at wheels even with better aerodynamics. GT probably 595-600 at wheel and 488 605-610.


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago

Also the 647bhp number is just a solid conservative one, the real number won't be published until after 2018. It's most likely making SEVEN-hundred 47, or closer to that of the new Shelby GT500. Ford is keeping everything lowkey for now as they know they are competing with likes of the new Corvette ZR1 and Bugatti Chiron.

Remember when McLaren stated their F1 had 550-580 hp for one year and then they said 627? Or when Ferrari said the F40 made 478 hp but it REALLY, REALLY made closer to 550?

 

User avatar

Grotiare  4m ago

Wouldn't its quarter mile times be closer to or better than a 720? it's almost a second slower.. I'm not complaining if it really does produces more hp tho


User avatar

n21t4  4m ago

Ford are not competing with Bugatti.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago @Grotiare

The mph times of the 458 test are from a car Car and Driver dynoed at 495 bhp at the rear wheels. The GT is likely making 530-540 at the rear wheels but has more drag than barely less quick 458.


User avatar

If there wasn't enough stuff posted on this car page, I would have deleted this page as a moderator as it's not quite a production car yet. Ford is still upset that John Cena sold a blue one.


User avatar

hostboy  4m ago

10.8 sec at 134 mph is a good 1/4-mile time to believe. Way more senseful than 11.1 sec at 130 mph.

 

User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

That was at nearly a mile elevation for Road & Track.


User avatar

hostboy  3m ago @Fastedee

I believe that because an old GT could run 11.2-11.5. There is no way a new GT is "barely" quicker with a slower mph (128 mph with a manual or old-school auto is approximately 133 mph with a dual-clutch, 131= ~136). The Ford GT should even be running 10.6 at 140. That's what a 488 does and a 650S does.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @hostboy

The GT is a compromise between what an ACR and 488 does. It is nearly as fast as 488 and laps nearly as quick as ACR. There is always a tradeoff. It did reach a higher top speed at Virginia but it exited the turn faster than 488.


User avatar

Fastedee  3m ago @hostboy

McLaren Senna has right idea ...incredible mechanical grip, power to weight and downforce. The GT has only 205 kg of downforce at 250 km/hr vs 591 for ACR. The ACR accelerates too slowly for a 450 000 $ supercar.


User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

So it was 9.2-9.4 0-200 km/hr car at low altitude after all.

grotiare  3m ago @tyler

I really like the GT, but Ford's behavior is almost making me regret the fact that they won Le mans. They still treat the car as if its not a production model with all the secrecy regarding instrumental test. Like, why is Ford so covert with a car introduced 3 years ago.


User avatar

Grotiare  4m ago

TBH Ford should make a more track oriented version of the GT called like the "ganassi edition", like what McLaren's doing with the 720s and Senna. Make it 2600 2700 lbs and bump hp to 750-800 with a big ass wing and a lot of carbon. I'm sure the v6 can have more power pulled from it easily

 

User avatar

tyler  4m ago

Them making the car have more horsepower shouldn't be hard. I agree there should be a version with more power. But this car is never going to be close to 2600-2700 lbs pounds with a full fuel tank and be road legal.


User avatar

Grotiare  4m ago @tyler

Maybe 2800? If I recall the gt prototype initially weighed 2890 lbs but they decided to add the extra suspension components to which made it heavier


User avatar

Grotiare  4m ago

Motor trend already tested the GT already at big Willow with a lot of technical data, Randy Pobst said the article will be released at any moment.

Especially when the 2005 Ford GT almost beat the Porsche Carrera GT in Motor Trend.


User avatar

hostboy  5m ago

Actually I think the Ford GT shouldn't even be in the 10-second range, but 9.8-9.9 for the 1/4-mile time at over 145 mph. Yes, I know, don't judge me, it makes 647 hp but it also makes barely less torque than a 488 GTB at a HUGE 5900 rpm and it has a top speed that beats the Porsche 918 Spyder too. It's also twin-turbocharged in its V6! 647 hp and 3.5L Ecoboost equates to about 30 psi of boost and that means it's just as likely to be underrated as the European cars.

On a side note, even the 2005 Ford GT's engine was underrated; and so are all of the Hellcats (made today) - but they're all supercharged.

 

User avatar

Fastedee  4m ago

Too high a drag and slightly more optimistic American bhp figures or less efficient drivetrain. Very close to 488 till 140 mph though. Easily fast enough to scare Clarkson lol

911 TurboS Cabriolet - 14.9 s
Impressive performance for 500,000 usd price .Probably GT faster on the track but not twice. And it's not clear why the McLaren 570S has the same weight and only 560hp and runs 0-150 in just 13,9s

most probably they will hand over their tweaky version of this car in other tests and call it our stock cars can do better than the competition, but since they know they can sell the idiots out there an updated exterior design from its predecessor with cheap ford interior quality, why not charge them over 400k ? lol

i wonder what could happen if one of those ecus decide to fail ? 125 mph would come up in 12 s - 13 s ? lol


User avatar

Fastedee  10m ago

According to the Road & Track tester this car was tested in hot weather at 4370 feet(1325 metres). You lose about .7 seconds in the quarter for every 4000 feet in an N/A car and .3 in a turbocharged car in my experience. Subtract another .1 for heat and this car does a 10.7 134 mph quarter and a 9.2-9.4 125 mph.

 

User avatar

hostboy  5m ago

Although in reality, the Ford GT should be a 9.85s/145mph car. Dual-clutch from a Ferrari 458/Mercedes-AMG SLS and great aero (0.35 Cd mixed with 19.15 ft2 frontal area, almost on par with the old McLaren F1!) packed with over 30 psi of boost


User avatar

dddd  10m ago

I would say that not every supercar has to be so heavily performance-obsessed like Mclaren. But by any standards new Ford GT shouldnt be slower than typical supercar like 488 GTB or 991.2 Turbo S.

More tests will show how fast is this car.
