The styling is somewhat reminiscent of the original GT40, and the 2005 reboot, the original Ford GT.

The new Ford GT is said to be significantly lighter than before, thanks largely to more aluminum and carbon fiber in the body and chassis.

Massive intakes in the rear fenders provide cooling to the rear-mounted engine, and provide plenty of visual flair.

There's also a massive rear spoiler, which deploys at speed to provide additional stability and downforce.

That replaces the supercharged V-8 engine in the previous GT, presumably providing better efficiency as well as more power.

The car's spiritual predecessor was the '60s racer the GT40. Sadly, that branding is now owned by another company, so "GT" is what the new one will be called.

The overall shape of the front of the car, too, is quite reminiscent of the GT40 and the earlier Ford GT.

No pricing yet on this, the 2016 Ford GT, but expect it to fall in line somewhere north of the $140,000 that the original GT cost in 2005.
