Ford just changed the world–or the automotive world, at least.

The Blue Oval gang shook up the automotive universe today when it unveiled an all-new Ford GT (slated for a 2016 release) powered by a twin-turbo V6.

The 3.5L EcoBoost is reported to make more than 600 horsepower. It is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. The vehicle features aluminum subframes wrapped in carbon fiber body panels. Ford officials say the 2017 Ford GT will have one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car.

As Road & Track said: “If you don’t like it, you are incorrect. Or dead.”

Other vehicle highlights include upward-opening doors, active aerodynamics with a deployable rear spoiler, torsion-bar and pushrod suspension, 20-inch carbon fire wheels, and more.
