Ford continues to fine-tune the 2017 GT supercar’s aerodynamic design and function before its availability later this year. In fact, they’ve released a short video of the Ford GT being tested on a wind tunnel.
Ford Engineering Supervisor Nick Terzes leads a team of experts who work daily at Ford’s Wind Tunnel 8 facility in Allen Park, Michigan. Terzes’ team aims to gather data in order to evaluate the GT’s aerodynamic performance by blowing a stream of white smoke at speeds of around 200 km/h.
One of the great things about this car is that every single opening has a purpose. So if you see a large grille or a scoop, it wasn’t just put there to look good. It was put there because it has a function,” said Terzes.
In case you’re wondering, the 2017 Ford GT runs with a 600 hp 3.5L V6 gasoline engine. Ford added that the vehicle is fitted with a teardrop-shaped carbon fiber body to minimize drag. It also has an aluminum subframe which improves rigidity and weight reduction. In addition, the car’s ride height can also be brought down to 50 mm while its rear is equipped with a speed-activated spoiler.
See how the 2017 Ford GT performs on the wind tunnel in this video.
