Ford GT is our fastest car ever!

January 27, 2017

The news that petrol-heads everywhere have been waiting for has finally arrived.

The top speed of the new Ford GT supercar is a mindboggling 216 mph – making it the fastest car we’ve ever built for the road.

Flat out, a Ford GT driver will cover the length of a football pitch every second, and could travel from London to Edinburgh in less than two hours.

Clever technologies like a lightweight carbon fibre body, a powerful engine with not one, but two turbochargers, and active suspension and aerodynamics that adapt to provide the fastest performance – mean the Ford GT isn’t only quick in a straight line.
