The 2017 Ford GT is a high-performance sports car produced by Ford as part of its GT series. It was introduced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Ford's victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. The 2017 Ford GT is a modern iteration of the classic GT40 race car.

Here are some key features and specifications of the 2017 Ford GT:

  1. Engine: The 2017 Ford GT is powered by a mid-mounted, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. This engine produces an impressive amount of horsepower, contributing to the car's high-performance capabilities.

  2. Transmission: It comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, delivering quick and precise gear changes.

  3. Performance: The GT is designed for high-performance driving, with advanced aerodynamics and lightweight construction. It features a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and body panels, helping to keep the weight down while maintaining structural rigidity.

  4. Top Speed: The 2017 Ford GT is capable of reaching a top speed of over 200 mph, making it one of the fastest production cars at the time.

  5. Design: The design of the 2017 Ford GT is aerodynamically optimized for performance. It has a low-slung and aggressive stance, with features like flying buttresses and an active rear spoiler that adjusts based on speed and driving conditions.

  6. Limited Production: The 2017 Ford GT was produced in limited numbers, adding to its exclusivity. Prospective buyers had to go through an application process, and Ford selected customers based on certain criteria.

  7. Technology: The GT is equipped with advanced technology, including a digital instrument cluster, a centrally mounted touchscreen for infotainment, and various driving modes to adjust the car's performance characteristics.

The 2017 Ford GT is a highly sought-after and collectible sports car due to its limited production and association with Ford's racing history.

AUTOart's latest innovation in composite and diecast models, or exquisitely crafted replicas made from a hybrid of different materials that have been selected and engineered to produce both the supreme finish detail and high value our collectors demand. Model making will never be the same.
In composite models, AUTOart pairs a die-cast interior with a newly developed injection Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a thermoplastic polymer with special blend of different materials for reinforcement of the body, utilizing the benefits of both materials to create the highest quality models our company has ever produced. 
Injection ABS composite material has shown itself to be an ideal material to form the body of a model car. Compared to our old body material, die-cast zinc, injected-ABS composite material surfaces, with correct formulation, are smoother and the bodylines and creases are sharper. The openings for vents and holes are also reproduced more cleanly, and the panels can be much thinner when rendered in ABS composite material than in zinc alloy. That makes the finished body closer to the true scale gauge of real car bodies.
