Although it was always intended to take its place among the world’s most desirable ultra-high performance sports cars, make no mistake that the third generation Ford GT was conceived, designed and built with one priority in mind: win the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 50th anniversary of Ford’s fabled victory at le Sarthe in 1966.

The result is a masterpiece in design, echoing the iconic shape of the Ford GT that Bruce McLaren and Chris Amon piloted to victory in the “ronde infernal” while taking every possible advantage of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile’s regulations to create another Le Mans winner. With a miniscule frontal area and dramatic “flying buttresses” the Ford GT cuts through the air on the Mulsanne Straightaway like the proverbial knife through butter – with plenty of of help from a 3.6 liter, twin turbo Ecoboost V6 engine producing 530 horsepower and 494 ft-lb torque. The combination delivered a dramatic win at Le Mans in 2016 in the car’s inaugural campaign, along with several other victories in World Endurance Cup and IMSA competition, indelibly stamping the Ford GT as worthy successor to its legendary namesake.
