Special Ford GT microsite up in Ford PH website

If you visit the Ford Philippines website now, it won't be an Everest or an EcoSport that will greet you. Instead, you'll see a Ford GT, the company's latest supercar. Could this be a sign that the Ford GT is coming to Southeast Asia for the first time ever?

The Ford Philippines website even offers a special microsite for the all-new GT, giving you a part of its specifications. Unlike the Ford GT revival eleven years ago, this new GT is powered by a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 instead of a V8. Exact figures have yet to be released but Ford sees "over 600 PS" for the newest GT. Like a true supercar, the GT is crafted from exotic materials. The lightweight body is made of carbon fiber while aluminum structures minimize the weight of the high-strength subframes.

Ford GT application details

At the time of writing, we are still awaiting information from Ford Philippines regarding this development. However, a quick look at the microsite states that application details will be available by February.

We will continue updating this story as it develops.
