While Ford has no official plans to produce a roadster version of the upcoming Ford GT, that hasn’t stopped our friends at Emilano from creating their version of a GT Roadster.
The render features two different colored Ford GT’s (blue and white with blue stripe) – both sans roof. In our opinion these renders look absolutely stunning and we would love for Ford to produce a GT Roadster concept, at the very least.
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.
Underpinning the 2016 Ford GT is a carbon fibre monocoque with aluminium front and rear subframes also featuring. Carbon fibre has also been used for the new Ford GT’s body panels and while Ford has yet to reveal how much the car weighs, it is claimed to have “one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car”.
