Ford GT wins EyesOn Design prize for best production vehicle


The all-new Ford GT, designed as a technology showcase for top EcoBoost performance, aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fibre construction has won the prestigious EyesOn Design Award for best production vehicle at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.

The ultra high performance supercar was recently at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.

EyesOn Design, the official design awards for NAIAS, honors the best production and concept vehicles making global debuts in Detroit.

Judges include current and former design leaders from global automakers and transportation departments at top art schools.

The all-new supercar represents the company's commitment to innovation through performance. Its advanced, lightweight composites will help serve Ford Motor Company's entire product lineup moving forward.

A next-generation, 600-plus-horsepower twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine demonstrates remarkable efficiency - a key attribute of its endurance racing-derived powertrain. The engine is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle that provides for near-instantaneous gear changes and exceptional driver control.

Aerodynamic efficiency is at the heart of the design of the Ford GT, with every slope and shape designed to minimize drag.

An active rear spoiler is keyed to both speed and driver input, deploying and adjusting its height and/or pitch angle depending on conditions.

Beginning production in 2016, Ford GT arrives in select global markets to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford GT race cars placing 1-2-3 at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans.
