JAY LENO FORD GT IN MALIBU! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 659

JAY LENO FORD GT IN MALIBU! – FIREBALL MALIBU VLOG 659 – Fireball heads to a Malibu Car Show, talks with Jay Leno and his Ford GT, Bruce Meyer and Caitlyn Jenner… then watches a Classic Car on Fire? Wups.

From WIKI… The Ford GT is an American mid-engine two-seater sports car manufactured and marketed by Ford for model year 2005 in conjunction with the company’s 2003 centenary — and again in redesigned form for model year 2017.

The GT recalls Ford’s historically significant GT40, consecutive four-time winner of the 24 Hours of LeMans (1966-1969), including a 1-2-3 finish in 1966. Jay Leno Ford GT

At the 2015 North American International Auto Show and at the unveiling of Forza Motorsport 6, a new Ford GT was introduced and is set to be produced and released in 2016.

It will mark 50 years since the GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans and has run successfully in the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans to mark the anniversary, winning the GTE class. Jay Leno Ford GT

The car is to be powered by a newly designed 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine making 647 hp (482 kW; 656 PS) and 550 lb·ft (746 N·m) of torque.

According to Ford, “the GT will exhibit one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car,” thanks to its lightweight carbon fiber construction.

Underpinning the GT is a carbon fiber monocoque bolted to aluminum front and rear subframes covered in carbon fiber body panels. The car also has racing inspired pushrod suspension, active aerodynamics, and dihedral doors.

The windshield of the vehicle is made of Gorilla Glass manufactured by Corning, which is also used for smartphone screens. Gorilla Glass is used to reduce the weight of the vehicle by allowing for a thinner windscreen with the same strength.

Beginning in December 2016, Ford plans to build the GT at a rate of one car per day in this new, low-volume assembly facility at Multimatic in Markham, Ontario until October 2020.

2017 and 2018 model year vehicles will be reserved for selected GT buyers, 2019 vehicles for buyers passed over in the initial selection process, and 2020 vehicles for new customers.

A Day with Jay @ JAY LENO’S GARAGE…

2013-04-13_13-04-25_306

Had an awesome day yesterday with Jay Leno at his cool garage in Burbank. It’s massive at about 2-3 times the size of the Petersen Museum with so many cool cars that I lost count. Love to show you some, but out of respect to Jay and his team, his collection of fine rides will stay in the garage.

We shot an episode of his Book Club and that airs on Youtube and tons of other places May 1st. I also announced Wacky Rides BOOK 2, so that was fun and signed a few to the Jay and the crew. And no, I’m not gonna say what it is LT or SB until May 1st, no matter how much flogging I get. But buy Book 1 so that Book 2 isn’t lonely…

BIG THANKS to Jay and Kico for having Kathie and I, the awesome YooHoo with lunch, and look forward to doing some of the “other things” we discussed while there!

Big thanks to Richard James of GM… Now for some Caddyness….
