Exclusive Look at the Engine That Could Power Fordís All-New GT

What you may not know is that the 600hp race versionóbuilt by Roush Yates Racing Engines (RYRE)óuses a production block, heads, direct injection, cam drive, gaskets and valvesprings. It also uses stock bore and stroke, compression ratio, and valve sizes.
Weíve run [unrestricted] dyno tests close to 1,000 hp. When we set the 223-mph speed record at Daytona, the V6 was making 800 hp. And we ran 10 miles at WOT.Ē Theyíve also run more than 14,000 simulated miles at Daytona. But IMSA rules limit the engine to about 600 hp with the use of 33.2mm restrictor plates fitted before each turbo. With such immense power and reliability, Ford realized this was the engine for the next GT supercar.

Autoblog posted some snaps of a mule in the wild. With that motor, and the lightweight body work on this machine; this is going to be one serious performance car.
