The Ford GT, or at least the latest rendition of the car, has really been a controversial cup of tea. The car had made headlines at the time of its release for a variety of reasons including the fact that it would no longer sport the V8 under the hood but instead have a twin-turbocharged V6 application that would flip the entire concept of the car on its head. Now, given that we understand that the EcoBoost has been a shared lineage for Ford between the GT and the F-150 lineup, a quite common practice, you’d think that there would be a lot to offer in other areas of the machine for the price tag that comes along with this thing.
If that was the question that you had in mind, in the opinions of people familiar with the industry across the board, there seems to be a consensus that there are certainly a lot of nuances provided by the car that make it interesting enough to spend the amount of money on. This time, we check out one component of the car in the suspension that really is interesting to dissect and watch. Who better to look into something like this with than the host over at Engineering Explained? He really seems to have a firm grasp on the concepts and takes the liberty of breaking down exactly how complicated this suspension is in motion along with a helpful animation that will allow you to visualize exactly why it’s so top-of-the-line.
If you follow along with the video below, you might get a better idea one of the systems on a Ford GT that makes it what it is. The footage really gives you an opportunity to see just how many moving parts need to come together at one time to paint one cohesive picture of the suspension in order to give the driver the optimal driving experience as they use their input behind the wheel to have the optimal output that will help the car move around the track, street, or whatever surface that it’s trying to tackle in the most efficient way that it possibly can.
