The Ford GT has 647 horsepower and can reach the top speed of 216 mph. Beneath its skin sits the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine and produces 550 pound-feet of torque from as low as 3,500 rpm.
It will cost you somewhere north of $450,000 to buy one, and if you were lucky enough to be chosen by Ford as one of the few with the chance to do so.
Also, as the Ford engineers prove in the video below, it passes the water and splash test. Ford puts all of its cars through this test to make sure they can handle puddles that might be bigger than what you get with your average pothole.
This is the extreme version of what cars would experience out on the street, it’s done to make sure drivers don’t have issues should they encounter such adventurous conditions.
There’s the percentage chance approaching zero that the Ford GT owner would ever attempt something like this. Hell, we will be impressed if a GT owner takes his or her car out during the mild sprinkle.
Still, Ford has to know that its vehicles can pass this test, and the GT doesn’t get an exemption. So, as you can see in the video below, some Ford employee had the job of pointing the nose of the very expensive and the very low GT toward the splash test zone and driving right on through.
As this video rolls on you can see that the water flows out of a rear through areas that were designed for optimal airflow on a racetrack.
