Ford GT Repainted Silver for Chicago Show, Will Be Produced in Canada
Tungsten silver is back.
At today's Chicago auto show, Ford rolled out a Ford GT draped in gorgeous silver paint, with contrasting gray stripes. This color scheme references the special Tungsten edition Ford GT from 2006, which commemorated Ford's win at Le Mans in the 1960's. Like the sumptuous blue paint color on the previous Ford GT show car, there is no confirmation whether or not this paint option will reach production.
The automaker also confirmed that the new Ford GT will be built in conjunction with Multimatic Inc. in Ontario, Canada. Multimatic is known for extensive work on racing programs, including Formula 1 suspension and chassis components, along with Ford Racing manufacturing. Multimatics previously made headlines for chassis and suspension development for the 2012 Aston Martin One-77, as well as for developing the high-end DSSV dampers on the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28.
Like the blue model shown in Detroit, the silver Ford GT has a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine pumping out an excess of 600 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. Overall mechanical and performance details are scant on the Ford GT, but we have previously learned the Ford GT engineers benchmarked the 2015 Ferrari 458 Speciale, which puts the GT deep within supercar territory, and pushing near the realm of hypercars.
Look for more details regarding the sublime Ford GT in the coming months, and for now, take a long, loving look at the silver Ford GT in our large photo gallery below.
