Spy photographer tracks down the 2017 Ford GT S testing without Paint
Spy photographer tracks down the 2017 Ford GT S testing without Paint

Moray Callum, the Vice President of Design, was not kidding when he said that 95% of the GT supercar‘s design was complete at the 2015 Detroit car show. The first 2017 prototype of the Ford GT was tracked by our photographer at Dearborn headquarters of the automaker. Apart from the emission testing equipment and the placeholder nipple like taillights, and a large  lack of paint, the prototype was very much similar to the concept we saw at the show in Detroit.

The GT admittedly appears quite good in the primer paint, and you can easily identify it with the “caped crusader’s ride”. But we would like to see the GT without so much cover like to see the entire bodywork, and it will be totally carbon fiber or composite. This will be constructed at a plant in Canada.  The spy photos reveal the car regaining the clever intercooler, and engine intake assembly of the concept car.

There is no rear diffuser found in the test mule, and the GT offers us a glimpse of the rear differential, and also the exhaust setup with its high center exist. Just within the proximity of these gears resides the 3.5 Liter twin turbo V-6, which is supposed to spew out a walloping 700-hp.  There is a debate on what to include in aluminum wheels and the carbon fiber work that you have seen on the Mustang Shelby GT350R. Another debated item is the decision between five-lug design and center lock.  The rims on the test car are five-lug, which is very similar to the one witnessed on the forged aluminum wheels of the show car.

 

With  completely done car testing on the streets already it had come as a surprise when Ford said that it promised to deliver the GT in one and half year time which a super quick turnabout to a vehicle got the nod only 16  months ago.

What do you think about this vehicle?
