Hybrid supercars is a big trend in the industry and although that does not make them green, we support this "greenization" of the sports cars.
Because, we cannot stop producing them from a day to an other but we can try to make them more responsible …
Concerning the Ford GT: it will be powered by an hybrid mid-engined turbocharged V8.
Thanks to technologies similar to those used by Porsche on the 918 Spyder
and the GT3 R-Hybrid
, an overboost: a simple push on a button and electric engines will deliver the additional power to the front wheels.
The new Ford GT will also feature a Start/Stop function will be able to drive for some kilometers in electric only mode.
Its power will be superior to 600hp, an aluminum frame and a body in composite will keep the weight at 1400kg.
Estimated performances: 0 to 100kph in three seconds and a 320kph max speed.
The target: MacLaren MP4-12C and Ferrari 458, the Audi R8 and the upcoming Lamborghini with an inferior price.
