Ford GT Carbon Supercar Revs Up Detroit Auto Show

While the new Ford F-150 has dominated the Blue Oval’s headlines for many months now, Ford still managed to put out another equally impressive performance car at the North American International Auto Show this year—the Ford GT Carbon Fiber Supercar. This Ford GT supercar is one of twelve new performance vehicles the brand promised us by 2020—and if this is the standard, we’re excited to see the rest of those cars, for sure.

The Ford GT gets its power from its EcoBoost engine. Ford has begun implementing EcoBoost technology in basically every one of their vehicles, and this engine, a twin-turbocharged V6, is the most powerful EcoBoost offering yet. In fact, it will get over 600 horsepower. That engine is mid-mounted, and the car also features rear-wheel-drive and a beautiful carbon fiber design.

What’s more, the GT also received the EyesOn Design Prize for Best Production Vehicle at NAIAS. The award is given to the best production and concept vehicles making their global debuts in Detroit.

“Ford and its employees are honored to receive this recognition,” said Moray Callum, Ford Motor Company vice president, Design. “The great thing about the all-new Ford GT is that we were able to maintain the essence of the original GT40, while making it into a 21st century car. The GT’s cutting-edge technology and engineering demonstrate Ford’s commitment to performance and innovation in every aspect of our business.”

We’re certainly proud of the Ford GT Carbon Supercar here at Cambridge Classic Ford, but we’d be even more proud to see you behind the wheel of one. So come see us today to learn more about the supercar that shocked Detroit—and to get more information on all the Ford performance cars coming this decade.

Ford Concept Hints at Company’s Future

Ford has always been an innovator when it comes to performance vehicles, and it doesn’t look like the American carmaker will be stopping this tradition anytime soon. Known for its top of the line EcoBoost performance, Ford has decided to combine this technology with the new Ford GT Carbon Fiber Concept to create a GT model that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping.

“As we at Ford drive innovation into every part of our business, it’s worth remembering that our first innovation as a company was not in a laboratory, but on the racetrack,” said Mark Fields, Ford president and chief executive officer, referring to Henry Ford’s win of a 1901 car race that inspired financial backers to invest in his company. “We are passionate about innovation through performance and creating vehicles that make peoples heart’s pound.”

The all-new GT supercar features the most powerful EcoBoost production engine ever, featuring a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 that churns out more than 600 horsepower. Combined with the car’s lightweight, carbon-fiber body, this high-performance car is Ford’s most extreme offering.

Ford will begin producing the Ford GT Carbon Fiber Concept in 2016. Until then, stop in to Cambridge Classic Ford today and see what other high-performance options we have to offer!

New 2015 Ford F-150 Ads Keep it Tough

Ford is launching a new, rough-and-tumble ad campaign for their upcoming 2015 Ford F-150, the latest in Ford’s F-150 series, which in 2014 became the best-selling truck in 38 years. With such a huge fan-base, the auto company is ready to let the world know that the 2015 F-150 is ready.

The new F-150 is made out of trendy, lighter-weight aluminum, making the vehicle easier to power while maintaining its strength. However, the usual “Built Ford Tough” ad campaign will likely not make use of this fact, that could potentially be confusing to passerby.2015 Ford F-150 Ads
