We Saw This New Ford GT Track Footage And Figured Carroll Shelby Would Be Thrilled

Time for a return to where Ferrari was defeated.

2016 is going to be another big year for Ford, mainly because its all-new GT supercar is going to debut on both road and track. The road-going version is widely expected to have its debut next month at Detroit, and the track variant will be arriving in time for endurance racing season. Yes, it’ll be racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LM GTE Pro class, commemorating the 50th anniversary of Ford’s 1966 historic overall victory. You know, when Carroll Shelby was brought in specifically to beat Ferrari.

And like the original GT40, the new GT requires testing. Lots of it, only now it’s an awful lot more high-tech. On the other hand, some things don’t change, like actual test runs. So kick back, relax, and welcome 2016 with this new Ford GT track footage.
