There are dramatic rumblings in the world of Ford these days. 2016 will be the 50th anniversary year for Ford’s first victory in the Le Mans, a 24 hour endurance race. It earned that win with the Ford GT. Motor Trend now reports that Ford is possibly bringing the GT back into production to celebrate. Sound the trumpets! Granted, it may feature a different name than “GT,” but rest assured that it will perform just as powerfully as its predecessors.
The last GT was, to put it simply, a powerful car. The GT500 had specs that seemed like they were lifted out of a science fiction novel: A blown 5.8-liter V8 motor that could achieve 662 hp and 631 lb-ft of torque.
In light of the fact that that particular motor was retired in November of 2013, Motor Trend has its suspicions for the next generation motor. The Sebring, a 12-hour race, was won with a car that had a Ford 3.5-liter, twin-turbo EcoBoost engine. Perhaps they will go with that one.
While we might need to wait until 2016 to see the new GT, you can still visit Sanderson Ford today to check out fantastic current models!
