Forza 6 Reveals Ford GT Horsepower, Torque, and Weight

All-New Ford GT

On September 15th, the world will be able to purchase Forza 6 and a special edition Xbox One that features the Ford GT as the halo car. Being a racing simulator, it’s important for these games to have accurate information from the manufacturer. But what happens when a car isn’t released yet? That just happened with the 2016 Ford GT and Forza 6.

Thanks to our friends at Motor Authority, we have an idea of what the performance numbers will be for the new Ford GT. According to the game, the car will make 630 horsepower and 539 lb-ft of torque. All of that power will need to push around 2,890 lbs of body weight. The weight distribution is 43-57% front to rear.

Are these numbers accurate? Maybe. They could also be numbers that weren’t finalized when the game went into production. A simple software update when Ford releases the official numbers could update the car to be accurate. I highly doubt Ford wants their numbers leaked via a video game. However, it’s also very possible they’re 100% accurate. I guess we won’t really until until Ford gives us official numbers.

Until then, I’ll be driving the crap out of the Ford GT in Forza 6. Will you? Let us know in the forums!
