Ford GT: Active Aero In Action At The Wind Tunnel

by Paul Hadley

The new Ford GT is expected to be on sale by the end of the year, but Ford still doesn’t mind treating its potential customers to a little insider info. Ford released a video of the new GT under development in the wind tunnel at Allen Park Michigan.

In the video we get a close up look at the new GT’s active aerodynamics, with Ford engineering supervisor Nick Terzes stating: “One of the great things about this car, as dynamic and beautiful as the design is, every single opening has a purpose on the car. So if you see a large grille, if you see a scoop, it’s wasn’t just put there to look good,” Terzes said. “It was put there because it has a function.”

The new GT is one of the most highly anticipated cars of the year, with Ford engineers working round the clock to create it. Terzes said: “In the end, all these late hours, all these weekends that we work, are absolutely worth it to be a part of a program like this, and to create the ultimate GT.” Much like the past GT’s this one will lead Ford on through 2017 and, with a Le Mans win already, the GT certainly has a bright future ahead of it.
