First Drive: 2017 Ford GT

Besides, this engine is here not for how it sounds but for what it does. Like so many other Le Mans–driven decisions on the GT, the V-6 was chosen for its relatively small size, which helped keep the rear cowling as compact as possible. The fact that the same basic powerplant won at Le Mans and twice at the 24 Hours of Daytona (first in Ganassi’s Daytona Prototype, then in the GT) probably makes the lack of sexy sounds easier for prospective buyers to accept.

The street GT makes 647 hp, some 150 hp more than the race car. Power delivery is strong and linear, the V-6 pulling forcefully from 3000 rpm to its 7000-rpm redline. The seven-speed dual-clutch transmission rips off lightning-fast upshifts and rev-matched downshifts. The gearing is appropriate for everything from in-town driving to blasts at the track.
