The new 2017 Ford GT supercar has yet to hit the market in early 2018, but a tribute model is already on the way – the Zero to 60 GTT.
Basically a custom Ford Mustang that has been heavily modified to look like the latest Ford GT, the new 2017 Zero to 60 GTT will be displayed in the SCT Performance Booth (Booth #61018) booth at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The new GTT – which stands for “Grand Turismo Tribute” was a brainchild of auto designer and lead fabricator Kenny Pfitzer.
To make the base Mustang look similar to the 2017 Ford GT, Zero to 60 Design stretched its hood forward and fabricated a huge air intake. In addition, Zero to 60 molded two large air extractors – both featuring a similar shape to those on the Ford GT -- into the hood and stretched its fenders. The Zero to 60 GTT is provided with huge side skirts that guide air into two large air inlets located forward the rear wheels – a configuration similar to the aero tunnels on the GT.
Meanwhile, the rear end of the 2017 Zero to 60 GTT features center panel inspired by the exhaust surround on the Ford GT, as accentuated by a large, flat wing off the top edge. In addition, the 2017 Zero to 60 GTT comes with massive diffuser that accommodates a pair of drainpipe exhausts from Magnaflow (dual flow). It rides on HRE Performance P204 Brushed Titanium wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires with sizes 22x9.5 on the front and 22x11 at the rear. Braking and suspension systems were provided by Zero to 60 partners Brembo and Eibach Pro-Street-S, respectively. Exterior finish is done by PPG Professional Paints, with the looks of the muscle car boosted by Solar Gard window protection and tinting.
Serving as the core of the new 2017 Zero to 60 GTT is a 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine featuring a supercharger from ProCharger, with SCT Performance providing an optimized programming for a broad range of driving conditions. This V8 engine could develop around 800 hp (597 kW) of output.
Zero to 60 Design created the GTT muscle car with limited production in mind, with production set to commence early next year. Sales and distribution will be done through a few Ford dealers in Southern California Ford.
Aside from the 2017 GTT, Zero to 60 partnered with LINE-X Protective Coatings to display four other vehicles at the 2016 SEMA Show. These SEMA vehicles include a restored 1975 Ford Bronco, a customized 2017 Toyota Tundra, a customized Hyundai Tucson off-road vehicle and the Alkane Dominator Search and Rescue vehicle.
