It is with great honour and pleasure that Ford has asked MenStyleFashion to be part of one of the most aggressive and iconic racing events in the world. What is their mission for 2017?
Four Ford GTs to compete at 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours – a year after taking the class win in 2016 and 50 years after Dan Gurney and AJ Foyt took the second win of what would become a four-year winning streak for Ford at Le Mans.
Late last year, the first all-new 2017 Ford GT road car rolled off the production line, capping a year that saw Ford celebrate a winning return to Le Mans with the Ford GT race car, 50 years after a 1-2-3 victory at the 1966 Le Mans 24 Hours.
Le Mans The Mission The Message
Produced at a new low-volume production facility at Multimatic in Markham, Ontario, the new Ford GT road car is the most advanced, but also most exclusive Ford product ever, and will be limited to volumes of no more than 250 a year, globally.
“When we kicked off 2016, we had two primary objectives for our Ford GT supercar to excel at Le Mans, and to start deliveries before year-end,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president and president, North America. “We’ve achieved both.”
The all-new Ford GT racing car is the culmination of years of Ford innovation in aerodynamics, lightweight carbon fibre construction and ultra-efficient EcoBoost engines. Le Mans is the biggest challenge we could face with the Ford GT and the GTE Pro class is probably the most competitive GT class in the world.
