Thursday, November 3rd 2016. | Ford

The initial debut of 2018 Ford GT500 was in 2015 at Detroit Auto Show. From its first look, it has amazing design that makes our jaw dropped. There are some reasons about its awesome design. The first is about the great concept with the full carbon-fiber material to complete the body panels and the weight of the car. Besides, it has high aerodynamic design to support its powerful speed. Above all, it is a hypercar and more than just a supercar. Believe it or not, the car is capable to generate about 600 hp.

Design

Speaking about the design, 2018 GT500 is like other car. Of course, there must be something new. We glad that the car will come out with more futuristic touch with its clear look and more stylish design. Some major features are added to make it more prominent compared to other cars in its class. You can see that the back part has a pair of canon-size outlets that works as exhaust and it is located in the center, not in both sides.

We couldn’t reveal much thing about the cabin of 2018 Ford GT500, but there are some reliable sources mentioned that Ford will support it with new digital gauge cluster as the center of attention for its interior. It also has better cluster than before, thanks to new color for its touch screen display located in the center of the cockpit.

Engine

We have already mentioned that the output can reach 600 hp, and if you wonder how it does happen basically there is a new thing to offer. The engine can develop this output because Ford doesn’t use the same supercharged V8 engine that we could see in the previous GT version. They will support the new 2018 Ford GT500 with the use of EcoBoost V6 engine and 3.5 liter of capacity. It is estimated to produce 600 hp, just estimation.  There is no official verification yet, but the company mentioned that it seems possible to force the engine to produce even more than 600 hp, fantastic! So, how about the torque power? It seems that the car will have some shared components especially for the engine with F-150 Raptor 2017. If it comes to be true, the torque power can be about 500 pound-feet.

Release Date and Price

2018 Ford GT500 is still a big secret for Ford. They didn’t tell us yet about the estimated price. It is the strong rival for Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Huracan as well as McLaren 650S. If we see the rivals, it seems that the price can reach about $230,000. Ford mentioned that the release should happen in 2017.
