    New Ford GT 600 Horse Power Mid Engine....Oh and its a V6!

    Mid-engine layout 600 horsepower, lots of carbon fiber, and a dual clutch gearbox.
    3.5-liter Twin turbo EcoBoost V6 (yes, seriously) with more than 600 horsepower and is going into production in late 2016.

    Sounds great, except for the engine. Expected to see a 5.0 v-8 twin turbo with over 700 HP

    ^ Agreed, the motor is proven itself in the rolex series I was told, so the ground work and platform has been proven. BUTTTT 600 ponies is pretty weak if you ask me. I think they should have let that flat crank v8 in the gt350 get some time under its belt and then tossed some turbos on it for the GT. It would sound sick, make gobs of power, and have a nice curve.

    Apparently the V6 is required for Ford to be able participate in certain racing series.

    Maybe they'll wait a year or two and come out with a supercharged flat-plane V8 version.

    Maybe that's the plan for the GT500. I know the new 5.0 was designed to easily adapt to direct injection, and that will be key to making big power on pump gas.

    Has a lot of the same feel of this 3.5L turbo V6. It made 540HP and ran 213 mph back in 1992.

    I think its total badass. They claim it will have the best power to weight ratio of any production car as well. And there was mention about it being built to race at Lemans...Which would be AWSOME..thats why v6

    I think it depends what regular production vehicle means. But well see. I think its a cool looking car as far as exotics are concerned. Lets see how it performs

    I think it looks way cooler than the previous GT. Just don't think 600 HP is going to be enough to give it Super Car status.

    Don't think they are putting it all on the table.

    Little deeper into the sales cycle you may see some changes.

    Great looking car, nice setup, but I just can't get behind a six-cylinder in a Ford GT. It just feels sacrilegious.

    I think with 600+ on the hp scale and with the light weight of this car you would be happy with it... But not to worry, with a price tag of over $350,000 I don't think you will be buying one any time soon....Now I will have to sell my old one and maybe get one of these.....Rich
    Too many cars,too little time to drive them. Anything less than 500 cubes is a small block. If you slow down in life you will get run over..

    Correct Rich, I'm not loony enough to spend $350k on a car. Good luck. Sounds like a brilliant decision.
