The groundbreaking design of the all new 2017 Ford GT not only combines style and elegance with a stylish and powerful silhouette, but has also earned the Ford GT the Gene Ritvo Award for Design and Elegance from the New England Motor Press Association (NEMPA).
The Ritvo Award honors the best in design in the automotive world, that of which I feel the Ford GT exemplifies perfectly. The entries were judged by the New England Motor Press Association in conjunction with design experts from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brooklin, Mass.
“It is an honor to receive this award, an accolade that the entire team behind the all-new Ford GT can proud of,” said Moray Callum, vice president, Design, Ford Motor Company. “The 2017 Ford GT has a revolutionary design that maintains the essence of the original GT40, while making it into a 21st century car. This vehicle truly demonstrates our commitment to performance and innovation in every aspect of our business.”
First unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, the 2017 Ford GT supercar has set new standards for Ford innovation. With top level performance, advances in light weighting, aerodynamics and an ultra efficient EcoBoost engine, the 2017 Ford GT is truly raising the bar.
