2016 Ford GT Could Deliver 630 hp and 539 lb-ft

Ford GT to get carbon fibre wheels

Despite being released nine months ago, Ford has yet to reveal just how powerful the 2016 Ford GT supercar is. Thanks to Forza Motorsport 6 however, official specifications about the car have just emerged.

In the game, the 2016 Ford GT pumps out a total of 630 hp and 539 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine. The American marque has previously confirmed that the new GT will deliver in excess of 600 hp and given the accuracy of Forza 6, there’s a very good chance that these figures are the real deal.

To put the new car’s power into perspective, the 2005-06 Ford GT’s 5.4-litre supercharged all-aluminium V8 pumped out 550 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque so the new car improves quite substantially on those figures all while promising to be much more fuel efficient.

Just last month, Forza 6 revealed that the new Ford GT features a completely active rear wing and airbrake similar to the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari.
