ford-sema-2015-3

Center stage at the Ford booth here at the 2015 SEMA Show was the Ford GT Le Mans race car, unveiled this summer, commemorates the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1966 overall victory. The new race car is based on the all-new Ford GT supercar unveiled last January in Detroit and features the most powerful production EcoBoost engine, a twin-turbo V6.

As with last year, there were numerous Mustangs, Focus, and F-150s with mild to radical modifications. The Ford booth at SEMA is always a fun booth to walk through as there is usually something different to check out. In fact, for 2015 the Ford Mustang won the SEMA Show’s Hottest Car award which is based on how many tuners/exhibitors had a Mustang on display. There were some pretty crazy Mustangs at SEMA, but my favorite one was actually in the Ford booth this year. You can check it out in the gallery below, it’s the white widebody with blue wheels built by Ice Nine Group.

Check it, and the other vehicles in the Ford SEMA 2015 booth.

All-New Ford GT Makes Its Highly Anticipated Debut

ford-gt-concept-naias-2015-7

Ford debuted their all-new Ford GT to replace the aging current Ford GT supercar. Opting to go with twin turbochargers in the new GT, instead of the supercharged V8 in the original, Ford packs the most powerful EcoBoost engine ever under the hood. They are not releasing any specific performance figures but we are told it will deliver more than 600 horsepower to the rear wheels. The engine will be paired with a seven-speed DCT transmission. Really, the Ford GT needs no introduction. In fact during the unveil, Ford saved all the fanfare for the GT350R and just let the GT do all the talking.

“The GT is the ultimate execution of an enthusiast supercar,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “GT includes innovations and technologies that can be applied broadly across Ford’s future product portfolio – another proof point that Ford continues raising the performance bar while ultimately improving vehicles for all of our customers. While we hope enthusiasts rejoice about this all-new GT, all Ford customers will benefit from the ultimate performance Ford and its new-generation innovations,”

While the new Ford GT is wide up front, the lines of the body taper inwards creating a narrower cabin to aid in reducing aerodynamic drag while directing airflow to the mid-mounted engine. An active rear wing that adjusts its height and angle based on speed and driver input further control the air flow to balance maximum aero efficiency and handling. It rides on a set of 20″ wheels wrapped with Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires that cover a set of carbon-ceramic brakes on all four corners.

Chip Foose tastefully enhances his personal Ford GT

Typically, we’d expect a vehicle from 2006 to fall well short of a more modern vehicle, both in terms of performance and style. Of course, the Ford GT is not your average offering from the Bush era. That’s doubly true when the 2006 GT in question belongs to one Chip Foose.
