Production 2017 Ford GT Supercar Shown at Le Mans

Production 2017 Ford GT Supercar led a parade of historic Fords at Le Mans

There was no shortage of exciting moments of the 84th running of Le Mans 24 Hours. Highlights include Toyota experiencing a heartbreaking loss with a breakdown 3 and a half minutes from the finish line after leading most of the race. Audi struggled to be competitive in the race after a series of breakdowns, and Porsche ended up winning the race, overall.

The other big surprise at this year’s Le Mans was the appearance of a production spec version of the new 2017 Ford GT Supercar. With Ford Product Chief Raj Nair behind the wheel, the car lead a parade of fast Fords including the original trio of GT40s that made the historic one-two-three finish in the 24 Hours of Le Mans 50 years ago.

The Production Version looks just like the Ford GT Concept

One thing that immediately stood out about the production version of the Ford GT is just how similar it looks to the production version. In fact, it looks almost identical to the breathtaking concept unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

Information we have about the Ford GT Supercar

At the unveiling of the production version of the Ford GT this weekend, Ford Product Chief Raj Nair only confirmed that it would be available as a 2017 model. He did not reveal any additional information about the vehicle’s specifications.

We are not completely blind about the Ford GT Supercar. Here is some of the information we do have. It features a mid-engine monocoque structure made of carbon fiber. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine that is rumored to put out 630 horsepower and 539 pound feet of torque. Power is through the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.

Selecting Buyers for the Ford GT Supercar

With far more buyers for the Ford GT Supercar than will be produced, Ford made prospective buyers submit an application to buy the car. Over 7,000 applications were received earlier this year. Ford has not revealed for how many years the Ford GT Supercar will be produced but only 250 units will be produced at a starting price of $450,000.
