Now that the first 2017 Ford GT has rolled off of the production line, we will start seeing more and more of these American supercars on the road. In fact, one Redditor, u/Emulsifide, has spotted a GT without camouflage on the roads of Detroit. He notes that he’s seen plenty under camo, but this was his first time seeing one without a veil on the road.
What’s more, when asked about the sounds of the car, he had an interesting response:
It’s interesting sounding. The guy was just cruising along, so it wasn’t loud, but from what I was able to hear for the 10 seconds I saw it, it did sound like a more subdued version of what they’ve been running in Le Mans this year. Very tasteful, but not what you’d expect when you think Ford. Definitely the sound you’d expect when you think hypercar in general though.
That’s interesting insight into the sound of the car, remarking that it does sound like a hypercar. The sound that he was hearing was coming from a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s capable of producing over 600 hp. And, if you’ve heard the Le Mans version of the car, you know just how brutal it can sound.
The new 2017 Ford GTs will start being delivered soon to those who were approved.
