When Ford introduced audiences to the new Ford GT supercar, there was a palpable sense of excitement that went throughout the auto industry. The storied history of the Ford GT is known to many motorsport enthusiasts and the Ford Motor Company is looking to revisit this former glory, as was evidenced by the announcement that the model would be competing in the competition at Le Mans.

Now we can get a great look at the new Ford GT race car that will take part in the event, with further insight from professional drivers Ken Block and Vaughn Gittin Jr. Check it out below and let us know what aspect of the racer surprised you most.

For us here at Bill Brandt Ford, we were astonished to learn that it wouldn’t be a V-8 at the heart of the Ford GT, but the EcoBoost® V-6, a surefire sign that Ford is betting heavy on their own technology. After seeing the car in action, we're certain that it will prove to be a formidable contender on racetracks everywhere, not only at Le Mans.
