2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS)
Optimism is high at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) being held in Detroit where Ford’s new GT supercar being shown. It’s quite unlike its Le Mans-winning predecessors.
The new Ford GT is powered by a 3.5-litre, twin-turbo V6 which produces a remarkable 600 bhp. Wrapped in a carbon-fiber monocoque and equiped with active aerodynamics, Ford will achieve new heights with this model.
The other big story from Detroit is Acura’s second-generation, production NSX. After years of teasing, the 12-headlight Toyota supercar is finally here also with a twin turbo V6 mated to a nine-speed DCT transmission.
