This year, American muscle car enthusiasts everywhere were reunited with an old flame: the Ford GT. The GT re-entered the spotlight at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in January, but the car’s debut was more than just a reintroduction. Held in the heart of the American automotive industry and the car manufacturer’s hometown of Detroit, Michigan, the 2016 Ford GT made its first public appearance and reclaimed its old stomping ground in one fell swoop.
“…the most powerful EcoBoost engine Ford has ever created.”
Sure to be the start of a modern supercar era for the automaker, Ford plans to show off the 2016 GT’s American grit at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a famously grueling race known to challenge even the most skilled drivers and advanced supercars. The 2016 GT revival is forged with a twin turbo V6 EcoBoost engine that yields more than 600 horsepower, making it the most powerful EcoBoost engine Ford has ever created. Ford employed the use of lightweight materials to capitalize on the car’s performance, using carbon fiber to construct the passenger cell and body panels and aluminum in the front and rear subframes. – From the 2016 Exotic Car Buyers Guide
