Forza Horizon 3: New Ford GT revisited

The new Ford GT may look different than the previous Ford GT that combines history and performance with ease but with all the added sophistication and the firepower from its 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine, this modern-day take on the American Ferrari beater in Le Mans is a real winning formula for Ford and because it was so successful, it even scored a class win at the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans. Not even the Corvette can't keep up with that.

While taking its motoring vacation to the Land Down Under after all that hectic schedule on the track, the new Ford GT in Forza Horizon 3 is all about showing its true capabilities as a world-class supercar that incorporates the pinnacle of Ford's lineup of high-performance cars consisting of the new F-150 Raptor, the Mustang GT350, the Fiesta ST, the Focus ST, and of course, the Ford Focus RS.

As they told, the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine that powers it produces 638HP of power, which is more than what the old Ford GT's Supercharged V8 engine it possesses and while mated with a 7-speed automatic gearbox, it can go flat out in over 216mph. Apart from the raw power it possesses, the aerodynamics play a key factor to the Ford GT. With the front end, flying buttresses, rear end, and the rear wing played a major role in aerodynamics, it's about as sleek as an F-22 Raptor taking off and as slippery as...I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. It has different driving modes well suited for normal conditions, wet conditions, racetracks, and top speed, depending on where the car is driving at.

I had enough explanations about the new Ford GT but if I had, it's a very challenging feast for the brave and the tough because hitting at max speeds, the Ford GT is much risky to handle and the turning radius is surprisingly harsh unless drivers need to get this one right or else they're going to be in a massive pileup of worries ahead. It maybe a hypercar made to take on the Europeans but being American, they are very challenging to handle due to its dynamic traits too tricky to handle even on the straights. Speaking of which,

You may remember a few moments back in FM6 that I made this special design made in honor of THE IDOLM@STER's 10th anniversary in 2015 and with such stuff truly have in common, I decided to bring this design back to this car not for sentimental's sake but for the fun of it. As always, some major improvements need to be make before ready for today's shooting and because everything's all booked up for the day, some studio executive landed me to an unfittable location somewhere in Yarra Valley. A place that it's definitely no place for exotics like this and I'm talking about something offroad and it's getting to cramp my style, especially for a Ford GT that has gained a lot of power from engine swapping and for a car rounded up to Veyron levels, it's going to be very suicidal to drive even in unforgiving conditions like this.

With no choice, I had to do it even if it gets me home sooner...

Too much script rewrites than a Titanic movie with pirates on it and a shark but on the bottom line, I'm alive and kicking but man, I really wish I shouldn't try this suicidal setup on this Ford GT. He he he...
