If you want old-school analogue dials by Smiths, VDO and Jaeger, do go on and close this article now – the brand new GT goes fully digital. But don’t expect an Audi-esque satnav to feature any place in this mixture this really is about speed, power and… er, speed.
Ah yes, speed. Until recently, Ford only has noted the way the new GT supercar will manage north of 200mph. Today, it seems – a minimum of based on these new dash pics – that it’ll do 216mph. Would be that the top speed? We have no idea. But when so, it’s greater than the Porsche 918, along with a little under LaFerrari and also the McLaren P1. Still mighty fast, whichever way you peg it.
About individuals modes: you will find five to select from – Normal, Wet, Sport, Track and V-Max – that display salient information for that selected setting. For example, V-Max has got the GT’s velocity front and center on the top speed runs, and Track mode puts the apparatus in prime position, also detailing coolant temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure, in addition to fuel reserve, measured in percentage points.
Ford states that it’ll trickle lower to their other cars – presumably, only pretty brisk ones – which can make for many pretty awesome readouts around the facelifted Focus RS (just a concept, so don’t hold Ford to that particular).
Obviously, merely a select couple of is ever going to begin to see the display for action within the GT. And also the 250 customers selected for any 2017 model have something entirely more tactile to experience with before they take delivery of the shiny new wheels.
Online configurators really are a bit old hat, it appears. Ford appears to consider so, delivering out a ‘GT Order Kit’ to the first run of consumers. It’s filled with swatches for that trim and exterior pieces and moulds from the body covering – out of all available colours – with interchangeable stripes to demonstrate colour combinations. You can even find miniature wheels to obtain a peek at how different wheels look with various shades of brake caliper.
