He is the highlight of the house Ford! The mid-engine sports car Ford GT (2017) will probably only be built until 2018 and of course the number is limited. Ford would like to sell the sports car in 20 countries and as the official successor to the GT40 (2004-2006) it shouldn't really have any trouble adequately representing the legacy. The response to the athlete with a monocoque made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and a light aluminum frame is so high that the originally planned number of 300 units has already been increased to 1.000 units. The highlight is of course the drive. An EcoBoost V6 engine with a displacement of 3,5 liters, thanks to two turbochargers, developed a whopping 483 kW (656 PS) & 746 NM torque and thus manages to accelerate the GT to 2,8 km / h in just 100 seconds and only to put an end to propulsion at a breathtaking 347 km / h.

Drivers can of course provided that the GT has rear-wheel drive and the power flies by means of seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox with paddles on the steering wheel to the standard 20-inch alloy wheels. Incidentally, Michelin developed the Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 for the GT, From the factory, the GT is equipped with forged 10 spoke Alus (8,5 x 20 front and 11,5 x 20 rear), but optional are also available Carbon fiber wheels which are structurally stiffer and at the same time reduce the unsprung mass per wheel by approx. 1 kilogram. But the owner of this copy had a completely different plan! He looked up from the shelf HRE Performance Wheels and wanted to see the S107 wheel set on the super sports car. Due to the specially made tires, the wheel set had to be installed in identical dimensions and thus the assembly with 285 / 30 / 20 on the front axle and 355 / 25 / 21 on the rear axle is identical to the standard wheels.
This GT is an absolute world premiere because so far there is no new Ford GT on HRE rims, and in general we are not aware of any modified specimens. Incidentally, the team from was responsible for the conversion Elite Cars LLC (Jonesboro, Arkansas, United States) who are also responsible for the images and the video.

These are the changes to the 2017 Ford GT:

- possibly a sports exhaust system (more information is not available)

News from 15.03.2019
And we discovered another example on HRE Performance wheels forged rims. This Ford GT is on the new P1SC Series alloy wheel named P104SC in "Naked Silver" (possibly 21 & 20 inches with 355/25/21 and 285/30/20 tires) and looks just so breathtaking. Of course, the gorgeous pictures as well as the beautiful livery of the GT have a big part in it.
