Was already longing for some interesting rumors for the North American International Auto Show, this year end is raised very quiet, and somehow, I found one interesting not, what next, and although it seems more an invention to achieve visits, It could be more than a rumor. Supposedly, according Carscoops, Ford will present a supercar in the Hall of Detroir, but not just any, but a reissue of the 2003 Ford GT.
A new Ford GT for yankee appointment scheduled to open in January. But beware, there’s more, because they say it would not be a concept far from Ford directly present a limited edition of 1,200 units of the supercar. There are times when the source of these rumors makes me mulling over his head for hours. Where do these things come from? Do they seek views?
On one side until I see it logical. The Ford GT came about the same time as the Porsche Carrera GT, Mercedes SLR McLaren and Ferrari Enzo. Currently, the Ferrari Enzo and has no substitute, the LaFerrari, the Porsche Carrera GT could say that too with the 918 Spyder and Mercedes is the hook that is something for the Mercedes-AMG GT can not categorize substitute, that was the Mercedes SLS AMG great, but we can say it is ‘their race’. Come on, to continue the list, missing Ford.
More data that make me think that the rumors are unfounded. According Carscoops this hypothetical new Ford GT ride turbo EcoBoost V6 engine of 600 hp, which reminded me that Ford engine used in the 24 Hours of Daytona. He was introduced in October 2013 and has been competing throughout 2014. This is a V6 3.5 liter, twin turbos and direct injection tuned by Roush people, making about 600 hp and 658 Nm of torque. As they say, the performance of a five-liter V8 and 20% more efficient.
These are data that fit completely from my point of view, I have not invented any data and not unlikely that Ford exploited the development of this engine in competition to put in a supercar. What I’m not so clear is it a ‘substitute’ the Ford GT, much less get that name, because if we consider the purists who bundled with the 2.3 EcoBoost four-cylinder Mustang, a supposed heir to the Ford GT40 with a six-cylinder engine and less than five thousand inches Cu can be torture as a criticism, but then the engine is a marvel.
And so, finally, Ford has confirmed the arrival of the Ford Focus RS, part of a total of twelve new high-performance models that Ford will launch in coming years. ¿Would form part of the new Ford GT of those twelve cars?
