John Cena Samples The 2017 Ford GT 17

After showing his impressive fleet of performance cars to the world, WWE wrestler John Cena has upped the ante for his ‘Auto Geek’ channel, recently jumping behind the wheel of a 2017 Ford GT.

This particular GT came courtesy of Elder Ford Of Tampa and is finished in a beautiful shade of blue. It’s certainly not as eye-popping as some, including this Riviera Blue example, but still stands out on public roads, particularly with Cena in the driver’s seat.

As we know, the new Ford GT is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine with 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque, launching the supercar to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and through to an impressive 216 mph (348 km/h) top speed.

However, the new Ford GT isn’t dominated by its engine. In fact, previous reviews have suggested that it is the car’s race-tuned chassis that makes it stand out from all of its rivals.

Rev Off: 2017 Ford GT Titanium Exhaust Vs Standard Exhaust 17

Posted by Brad Anderson in Ford, Ford GT, Ford Videos, video on 11 17th, 2017


From the moment Ford revealed the 2017 GT would use an enhanced version of the Ford F-150’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost, many loyal company enthusiasts bashed the carmaker for using a V6 in a supercar.

Sure, the engine may not have the exotic soundtrack of the supercharged V8 found on the previous-generation Ford GT, but it delivers enough power to rival the European constabulary. As the video below shows, it also sounds pretty impressive.

This clip compares the optional titanium exhaust system of the GT with the standard system. As you’d expect, the lightweight titanium setup sounds the best, producing some satisfying pops and a race car growl.

However, this isn’t to say the standard exhaust doesn’t sound good. It too delivers a satisfying bark, but doesn’t quite have the exotic vibe of the titanium system.

In either case, we can’t imagine any of the lucky owners complaining.

Ford’s New GT Is Perfect For An Austrian Road Trip 4

Posted by Brad Anderson in Ford, Ford GT, Ford Videos, video on 11 4th, 2017


The new Ford GT doesn’t redefine performance car boundaries, but it still captured the attention of enthusiasts around the world, amassing a remarkable cult following in the process.

Eager to continue promoting the new mid-engine supercar, Ford provided a pair of Austrian journalists with the keys to the new GT and let them hit the Austrian Alps, exploring every facet of the car.

Unlike almost all performance-focused cars on the market, the 2017 Ford GT hasn’t been designed as a road car with some abilities when taken to a racetrack. Instead, the GT was designed for winning its class at the Le Mans 24 Hours and then refined and tamed for road use. Consequently, it is about as close to a race car as you can get.

Sitting at the heart of the GT is a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine with 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque.
