2016 SEMA Show: Zero to 60 unveils GTT or a Mustang inspired by Ford GT

Article by Christian A., on November 1, 2016

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.

Zero to 60 Designs is introducing the world to the groundbreaking 2017 GTT next week at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nev. The GTT pays homage to one of the world's most legendary and iconic supercar nameplates: Ford's all-new 2017 GT. The Zero to 60 Designs GTT will be featured in the SCT Performance Booth (Booth #61018) booth at SEMA. GTT stands for Grand Turismo Tribute and the vehicle was conceived by automotive designer and lead fabricator, Kenny Pfitzer. Showing a striking resemblance to the Ford GT, this all-new muscle car was designed with production in mind and Zero to 60 Designs will begin production in early 2017.

In addition to the debut of the world-class GTT, Zero to 60, in partnership with LINE-X Protective Coatings, is showcasing four other SEMA vehicles. These include a prototype off-road OEM production vehicle, a customized 2017 Toyota Tundra (LINE-X Booth #31107), a restored 1975 Ford Bronco (SEMA LTAA Booth #34183), the North American debut of the Alkane Dominator Search and Rescue vehicle (LINE-X Booth #31107), and a Hyundai Tucson customized into the ultimate off-road monster (LINE-X Booth #31107), represent the creative design skills and in-house fabrication capabilities of Zero to 60.

For the GTT, Zero to 60 selected PPG Professional Paints to ensure the look was not only clean, but helped set this GTT apart. Zero to 60 tied in the elegant look of the GTT by adding Solar Gard window protection and tinting to the vehicle. Zero to 60 chose ProCharger as its official supercharger partner to deliver both power and efficiency and SCT Performance to provide optimized programming for a wide range of driving conditions. Exhaust was quite simple; it had to be Magnaflow dual flow exhaust.

The GTT stands on HRE Performance P204 Brushed Titanium wheels and mounted on Pirelli P-Zero 22x9.5 (front) and 22x11 (rear). Zero to 60 selected Brembo as its brake partner and chose the Eibach Pro-Street-S as its suspension partner.
