We really need to thank Ford’s engineers and marketing team for creating such a successful PR campaign with the 2017 Ford GT. The marketing team has taken the car’s exclusivity and hype to the next level even though the car is a true performance marvel.
So much so that enthusiast like Jay Leno just need to stand in front of the car for less than a minute and say “we’ll have a road test for you very, very soon”. That’s all it takes for people to go nuts.
We expect a video review of the 2017 Ford GT from Jay Leno soon
According to Jay’s little chat in the Restoration Blog video embedded below, he will be testing the 2017 Ford GT in the next few weeks. John Cena is another celebrity that may be receiving a Ford GT, so it’s possible that these two celebrities will do a collaboration review together. If that will be the case, we’re about to witness the weirdest automotive review team-up ever.
The Ford GT features a 647-horsepower 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 that can hit up to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. Jay is one of the lucky lads to get a piece of history by purchasing one of the first 250 made.
Ford will probably be producing 250 GTs a year for a total of four years (which adds up to 1,000 2017 GTs in total, for you non-math people).
