Ken Block Helps Unveil Gorgeous Red 2017 Ford GT in Dubai

Ken Block made a special trip to the Dubai Motor Show this week to help unveil the new Ford GT in a stunning new color called Liquid Red.

This is the first time we’ve seen Ford’s supercar in red, and with white racing stripes on its wide, sculpted hood, it’s safe to say that it looks damn good.

Block was on hand to present the 2017 Ford GT to Sheikh Hamdan, the Crown Prince of Dubai. The move is part of Ford’s strategy to introduce about 30 new models to the Middle East and Africa in the next five years.

This is the third-generation Ford GT, and only 250 units will be built annually. Just 100 will be available to buy in the U.S. and the supercar is scheduled to go on sale in late 2016. Pricing should be around $400,000 and official specs haven’t been released yet, but we do know that it will be powered by a 3,5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 with more than 600 horsepower.

    The Middle East royalty might be large market for the GT. They have the money and don’t have the history to ‘require’ a V8 engine.
