I don't understand Ford (or Shelby). They own the GT supercar and put a V6 in it. While putting 700 hp in a Mustang

They don't have V8 as good as the V6 in Ford GT. Ecoboost is far superior in fuel consumption. And it matters a heck of a lot in Le Mans.

I understand you... but Ferrari won with 3.9 V8 TT


User avatar

FastestLaps  2w ago @M Power

Ferrari V8 TT is modern turbo engine, like the ecoboost V6 or I4.

This Ford supercharged V8 is a gas guzzler. I bet it feels and sounds amazing to drive it, but with the GT, Ford actually wanted to win races.

They could have designed ecoboost-type V8. But they chose V6. Both options would have advantages and disadvantages. V6 is more compact and better for weight and weight distribution, also a bit more fuel efficient. V8 has smaller pistons and can rev up higher (a bit more horsepower).

M Power  2w ago @FastestLaps

Again i agree with you about V6, but historically Ford GT had a V8 (not the same this Mustang). Maybe the client of street version wanted a V8.


User avatar

BR2+  2w ago @FastestLaps

Ford should be ashamed of themselves, Putting a V6 in a GT, Blasphemy, Not saying its a bad engine at all, But it doesnt belong in a GT, If i had one, Id certainly be putting money in a new V8 that would fit in it, Could care less about resale value, And be the first one to do it.

SpeedKing  2w ago @BR2+

Finally we agree on something lol I wouldn't buy one because they put a shitty V6 engine in it which sounds like crap.


User avatar

FastestLaps  2w ago @BR2+

Depends on whether you wanted the Ford GT Mk II to be tribute to original GT or if you wanted the Mk II to be clean slate design with no nostalgia baggage and simply be engineered as good as possible to be fast on track.

Actually, in a way, V6TT Ford GT is closer to GT40 because the original GT40 was also built to simply win Le Mans, purely function-over-form and with no weird vanity requirements for certain number of cylinders etc.

V8 engines simply were the best option at the time. It is only logical to expect Ford to choose the best option again in 2017 - and they did when they chose V6TT.

BR2+  2w ago @FastestLaps

Cant we have both? Cant we have a GT that is both a tribute to last cars while having a clean slate? Every GT was built for racing but that doesnt mean they have to ditch tradition because people have become oversensitive pussys knowadays, Ivee got no probel with that EcoBoost V6, None at all, The only problem i have is that its in a GT, If they wanted to make a standalone supercar with it, Im all for it, But 6 cylinders in Fords most awesome car doesnt feel right. Whats next a Lambo with an Inline4? A Porsche with a V16? Chevy with a V2? Ferrari with a W8?....

FastestLaps  2w ago @BR2+

You would have both if Ford went for V8TT. Unfortunately, they didn't. Not the end of the world.


User avatar

BR2+  2w ago @FastestLaps

.....Its just the end of heritage, And tradition, And sticking to there roots, I agree that the next cars generation in every car looses a bit of its root in the newest generation, But its going much faster and thats a shame.

The GT 40 had to meet certain criteria to race and win again at Le Mans.

Motor Trend magazine just did a test comparing this to the C8 Corvette with and without the carbon track pack, and the corvette on or not on performance tires.
Track: Virginia International Raceway
GT500 w/ Track Pack: 1:56.30
GT500 without Track Pack: 1:59.68

C8 Corvette w/ track suspension: 2:00.69

Motor Trend Magazine, March 2020 issue, article is “Wait, What?”

You can run 9.70's by making some minor modifications to the GT500...

Odd that both the 3.7 sec 0-60 and 1/4 mile times have already been beaten online. Several places rolled 3.5 sec 0-60 times and sub 11 sec 1/4 miles at 133/34 mph. Are these times produced by Ford? If so I bet it's without the carbon fiber track pack. While it only lowers the weight by a 150-ish lbs the carbon fiber wheels lessen the power needed to the wheels...

One of my fav cars out today. Think about it. You can get a Mustang with more power then a NASCAR and even an F1 car without the electric boost.

According to Ford, and confirmed by testers on a drag strip, 0-60 is in 3.3 seconds, and 1/4 mile is in 10.6. If you’re looking for instrumented tests, Car and Driver got 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, and 1/4 mile in 11.4 on a non-prepped surface.

Should we separate the standard GT500 and the GT500 with the track pack seems like there is a notable difference in performance.

Interesting the 2020 stock Mustang Gt500 just put down a 10.4 : 1/4 mile - interesting to see what it does on drag radials. Although Ford understate the power With 705 rwhp equates to over 800hp (825hp) more accurate.

The 2019 GT500 did a 1:59.68 for Standard pack and Carbon Fiber track pack did a n Viper ACR beating 1:56.30 and has almost reached the Corvette ZR1 territory at VIR Full course track, I am sure the new GT500 wont beat the Corvettes that much on slower tighter tracks, still those numbers are really good for a car that weighs a whopping 4200 lbs , some who have tracked the GT500 in streets of Willow-Willow Springs say the stock GT500 can do 1:25.xx-1:26 almost C7 Z06 levels of lap times without any modifications.

Looks like same gen car with yet another facelift. But that's not too bad - looks good.

All the money went into Match E.

Ford make a new GT with V6 Twin Turbo and a Shelby with a 5,2 liter V8 Supercharged. No sense...

Do most people like the way this car looks? Am I in the minority for not liking it? I think it looks a little ridiculous and not in a good way. The gt350 is designed so much better imo. I just wish it came with an automatic :(
