There are at least a handful of super cars or better say hyper cars that does not have any proper competitor on the market. Even knowing that Bugatti Veyron and 2016 Ford GT are not in the same power segment it is interesting to compare these two vehicles because both offer some quite impressive features.
Without a doubt 2016 is one of the most important anniversary years of one of the greatest victories of Ford racing team. We are talking about the great days of 24 Hours of Le Mans and a first year when Ford’s GT model won its first out of its four consecutive titles. We mention this because everyone needs to know these facts about GT model and what it brought to the market and racing segment.
Back than Veyron wasn’t even a thought in Bugatti’s engineer’s head, but around the time when GT disappeared from the racing scene one of the most prized vehicles from this manufacturer owned by VW Group came out. Later it received titles like The Fastest Street-Legal Production Car and many more, but bear in mind that the Ford’s racer is back and one of the goals is to bring great performances at a quite affordable price. Who will win 2016 Ford GT vs Bugatti Veyron race? Even this is not so hard to guess we know that Ford GT is great car.
2016 Ford GT Vs Bugatti Veyron
So what’s the new 2016 Ford GT going to bring? In the exterior segment it is going to come with extensive modifications to increase its racy profile and sporty look. It will have redesigned apron, new splitter and side canards, which will improve its aerodynamics. Veyron will come with its standard rain drop aerodynamic shape, low stance and massive splitter in front. It will also come with two tone exterior design, black yellow, with a mesh grille and initials in the front and on the rims. All this is racy enough to compete with any vehicle available on the market.
GT’s interior will be more than premium with soft touch materials and a lot of modifications to reduce overall weight, this is something that we can see even with the very supportive and adjustable carbon fiber seats. Bugatti on the other hand will come with two tones stitching on its premium leather upholstery, but it will also have some carbon fiber, especially in the dashboard. Unlike Ford it will have a central console and much more leather trims all around the cabin. If comparing 2016 Ford GT vs Bugatti Veyron interior styling second model definitely comes with more luxury, but if we want a real racy interior it is better to choose the first model which comes with F1-looking steering wheel and other racing gear in place where central console used to be in the old model.
Now we come to the main part of this comparison, the performance segment. The 2016 Ford GT will come with 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V6 EcoBoost engine which is going to be able to accelerate to 62 mph in less than 3 seconds, and develop 600+ horsepower output and reach 200 mph of maximum speed. On the other hand Veyron still has the title of the fastest car in the world with its crazy 8.0 liter W16 and quad turbo setup. This beast can produce 1,183 hp output and 1,106 pound feet of torque. It can reach much higher speeds than GT, with an ability to accelerate to 62 mph in 2.6 seconds and 253 mph (yes, your read it right) of maximum speed.
Price is one of the most important criteria in deciding who will win the 2016 Ford GT vs Bugatti Veyron race. Second model is one of the most expensive vehicles in the world and it cost 3,1 million dollars. We still don’t know the prices for the 2016 GT, but it is hardly going to come close to the pricey and luxurious Veyron. Something about $150,000 is expected making it much more affordable than the Veyron.
