How Rich Do You Need To Be To Afford The New Ford GT Supercar?

 

 

 

 

 

 

” At the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford went for the gold – both in honors and price tags.

  Its new Ford F-150 won the North American Truck/Utility of the Year award, and the company was runner-up for the North American Car of the year with its Mustang, which lost to the Volkswagen Golf.

  But the golden child of the show was the new Ford GT, which had been a mere rumor for months.

  The verdict: It was worth the wait – and possibly even the price tag.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In time for the 50th anniversary of the original GT40 winning the LeMans races, the new GT is all about flash. The machine has a 600-horsepower EcoBoost V-6 engine and is no gas sipper. The sleek, “futuristic” body is made completely of carbon fiber, which posed a huge engineering challenge. CNET quoted the car’s creator and Ford vice president of design, Moray Callum, as saying, “We wouldn’t have been able to build [this] car 60 years ago. Even 20 years ago.” “

2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 Debuts With Flat-Crank V-8 And MagneRide Shocks!

 

 

 

 

 

” The GT350 is back, baby. The last factory Ford Mustang to wear the vaunted badge disappeared nearly a half-century ago; based on the Mustang GT, it was a street-legal track weapon produced in partnership with Carroll Shelby. Ol’ Shel may now be gone, but the ties between his name and Ford’s pony car are as strong as ever. And the new GT350, which picks up where the original GT350 and the 2013 Boss 302 left off, may be the best-ever example of the breed.”

 

 

 

 

” The outgoing GT500, the most recent Mustang with a Shelby badge, was all about violent, face-flattening velocity, teaming 662 bombastic, supercharged horses with a solid rear axle. Ford’s newest Shelby takes an entirely different approach. For starters, it’s based on the latest “S550” Mustang chassis, which packs a fully independent rear suspension. The GT350 builds on that with Ford’s first suspension with magnetorheological dampers, unique bodywork that’s shaped for aerodynamics first and everything else second, and a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V-8 with a flat-plane crankshaft. It’s a thoroughly modern pony built for racetracks with apexes instead of those with burnout boxes. (Ford isn’t abandoning that niche, however, as a new GT500 is in the works.) “

The Juice Is Back After 20 Long Years

” It’s finally happening: after waiting 20 long years Ford is bringing back the Ford Bronco for 2016 and it’s not the Early Bronco concept that was unveiled to the world in 2004 like many believed. This all-new Ford Bronco is based off the highly popular Ford Atlas and if history does indeed repeat itself, this could kick-start the 2-door 4×4 SUV market once again.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The fullsize Ford Bronco faded away after the 1996 model year never to be seen again; that is, until now. The 2016 Ford SVT Bronco isn’t a cookie cutter soccer mom all-wheel drive purse with a steering wheel, it’s a genuine off-road rig and its large size and menacing appearance make no apologies at all. The 2016 Ford SVT Bronco is all business all the time like its predecessors before it. This definitely isn’t the Ford Bronco concept you probably saw in 2004 and every year since then as the so called “new” Ford Bronco. “
