As a true halo product for the automaker, the 2017 GT is a big deal for Ford both in terms of showcasing their innovation but to kick serious ass, again, at LeMans after winning it back in 1966. Powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, the Ford GT makes 600-hp and finds everything from new engine technologies to light-weight materials and innovations in aerodynamics.
