Nowadays whenever a new sports car or supercar is revealed, automotive renders get to work imagining different body styles even if they’re unlikely to ever eventuate. With this in mind, X-Tomi Design has released a rendering of the brand new 2016 Ford GT with a removable Targa roof and it certainly looks impressive.
As a reminder, beneath the skin of the 2016 Ford GT is Ford’s most powerful EcoBoost production engine ever and just as speculated, it is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 unit delivering more than 600 hp. Final specifications have yet to be released nor have performance times, but one can be assured the 2016 Ford GT will be faster off the line and feature a higher top speed than the previous-generation Ford GT. This engine makes use of dual fuel-injection as well as a low-friction roller-finger-follower valvetrain and is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle transmission.
Design wise the 2016 Ford GT is a revolutionary step over the previous GT. With that in mind it features a plethora of curves and carries an overall tear-drop shape. While the entire body of the new Ford GT has been created to provide for the best airflow, the new American supercar also makes use of a selection of active aerodynamic components including an active rear wing which can adjust its height and pitch depending on driving conditions.
