The Ford GT has a storied history from its Le Mans victory over Ferrari in 1966 to its return 50 years later to win again. But the Ford GT is more than a well-engineered car. It's a purpose-built race car with an exterior design to maximize its aerodynamic performance on any race track.

How The Ford GT Was Aerodynamically Designed | The Car Design Show

  • Amazing Video. Bitcoin has faced a rather strong resistance after its explosion to the $11,100 highs. At the recent lows, the asset traded as low as $10,300 - around 8% ish below the local highs couple of weeks back. Despite this slight slip and the fact that BTC remains above $14,000, we should all remain bullish on Bitcoin. I think bitcoin could soon move higher to $20,000 in a couple of days. As a crypto trader the past few weeks has recorded immerse benefits all round, my only regret now is not knowing Mr taylor on time, his top notch signals remains the bedrock of the successes recorded in my personal trading portfolio. his trading technics helps me get my profit... i already made $100k with his. investing on cryptocurrencies is now the new source of income for everyone he continues to be an inspiration to all who have been fortunate to have made use of his signals.You all can reach out to him through or on WhatsApp +1 409 299 3921

    • Also just to add on, the engine could either be 5.5 liters naturally aspirated or up to 4 liters turbocharged. A 4 liter v8 does not make much sense considering the engine needs to be reliable enough to run for 24 hrs straight for the FIA WEC competitions.

    • The current Ford GT is more of a homologation build for their GTE version. They only sold a certain number because they needed to meet the number in order to enter a track variant into the 24 hrs of Le Mans. There are a couple rules around what could be used and one is that the engine has to have the same cylinder block as the road version. There is no rules to how many cylinders are needed but ford probably found that the turbo v6 is the best balance between weight, power and their ability to package it into such a small space in the back of the car.
