According to the most recent reports, a new 2023 Ford GT is on the way. This amazing supercar is still legal for road use, but its price is so high, that most people can only dream about having one. Some spy shots are available, showing the most recent updates. However, cosmetic upgrades are minor. Moreover, the interior should also gain mild updates.
On the other hand, you can read a lot of speculations regarding the Ford GT and its engine lineup. While some reports are predicting the same V6 engine, some other sources are suggesting the famous Godzilla engine. Anyway, here’s everything we know about the new Ford GT at the moment.
New Godzilla Engine Rumors
Recent reports, which have been confirmed by spy images from Ford’s test center in the Detroit area, indicate that a modern V8-powered 2023 Ford GT is in the works. According to a source close to the American company, a 7.3-liter engine might thus replace the V6 3.5-liter EcoBoost.
Of course, this is just another rumor. The current Ford GT with a V6 engine produces 660 horsepower. The sound this car makes is incredible and the ride quality is astonishing. On the other hand, rivals from Ferrari and McLaren are providing even more power.
Ford GT Spy Shots
We have these spy images fresh off the wire, which clearly show the 2023 Ford GT with a modified rear end and engine cover. Additionally, it was discovered near an EPA testing site located near Ford’s global headquarters in Dearborn. The bottom grille and diffuser are missing from the back fascia, and temporary bumper pads are evident. The exhaust tips are distinctive, and just forward of the spoiler, you’ll notice what appears to be an oil cover.
Whatever the cap’s purpose, it will not be found in that location on a conventional GT, indicating that something mechanically unique is occurring here. When we combine this with the exposed bottom end, the exposed exhaust tips, the location of the sighting, and the rumors, we have more than a handful of dubious allegations.
Similarly, the inside is stunning, but for a different reason. It’s highly basic and driver-centric, with nearly all controls confined to the race-car-inspired steering wheel. While getting inside the 2023 Ford GT is difficult, once inside, you’ll see the driver’s seat does not adjust.
Rather than that, Ford designed the pedals and steering wheel to adjust to the driver’s fixed seat position. The gauge cluster appears to have been lifted directly from the Ford GT racecar, while another digital panel embedded in the suede-wrapped dashboard controls the infotainment system.
2023 Ford GT Release Date, Price
At this moment, we don’t know how much the 2023 Ford GT will cost. However, many experts believe the price will start at $500,000 and move up from there. Of course, if you are reading this, you know the price of this exotic supercar is something you cannot afford. Still, that can’t stop us from loving this iconic model with astonishing performances. We also don’t know what will happen with the Ford GT in the near future. Many reliable sources are suggesting the end of the production. However, the new 2023MY is coming, most likely by the end of 2022.
