Sure, the Ford GT has been assigned to the history books for many years now, but the American supercar classic has remained an absolute favourite for tuners all around the world thanks primarily to the fact that it’s more than capable of handling well over the mid-500 horsepower it was produced with.
As a matter of fact, the Ford GT’s transmission is so sturdy, that the Hennessey Venom GT uses the exact same gearbox with no problems despite pumping out more than double that of the Ford GT. And with this popularity comes an ever increasing number of GT’s being twin-turbocharged to attain the absolute maximum performance of this American classic.
In standard form, the Ford GT completes the quarter mile in times varying from 11.2 seconds at 131.2 mph to 11.78 seconds at 124.31 mph, however those numbers are put to shame by the following twin-turbo Ford GT.
This particular GT manages to complete the feat a full two seconds quicker with a time of 9.72 seconds at 145.64 mph. Not bad for a car which could be considered as ancient when compared to modern-day European and Japanese supercars.
