With the first generation of the legendary Ford GT (2004-2006), the American brand launched itself into the world of supercars after a long time, precisely from the 1964 GT40. In reality, we could even talk about hypercars in this case, given that Ford technology is taken to the extreme. This can be understood immediately and only by looking at its very aggressive design inspired by the racing world. The Easy Fuel system, patented by Ford, is also very characteristic, and allows to have a petrol filler without the cap, and which will later be adopted also in the cheaper models, such as the Focus and Mondeo. The frame and the engine are entirely in aluminum. Even the Brembo brake calipers are made of aluminum! You could choose between a six-speed manual gearbox and an automatic one, which for some reason was only four-speed. The performances are incredible, and would still make many supercars tremble today! It was sold with two different engines, a V6 (also shared with the F-150) and a V8. At the time, the Ford GT was a commercial failure and therefore was sold for only two years. It was planned to sell 4500 cars but, apparently, this number was never reached. In 2016 Ford will try again to achieve commercial success in the world of supercars with the second generation.
