2017 Ford GT: From Concept Sketch to Reality

1

It took a team of designers 18 months to turn the 2017 Ford GT from a sketch to a show-car.

These sketches offer a glimpse at the interior and exterior design ideas that were brought up before the car was officially revealed at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

The sketches show the challenges that the design team had to face when it came to making a new Ford GT. They had to look back at the legacy of the GT name, yet still deliver a modern and futuristic vehicle. The key design cues, such as the fuselage-like, tapered body style were present from very early on in the idea process. Of course, the mid-mounted twin-turbo V6 engine certainly helped influence that design.

We also have a few photos of the interior and the concepts that lead up to the final design. A minimalist space, the Ford GT features fixed seat bottoms, and a stalk-less steering wheel column. All the main controls are on the steering wheel itself.

    I have to admit I’m impressed by the GT. Particularly the part about making over 600HP from only a compact 3.5 V6. That’s more HP than the new 6.0 liter VW W12 from almost half the size.
