Here’s a rather peculiar mule of the Ford GT supercar undergoing testing near Ford’s Allen Park test laboratory in Metro Detroit. The sighting is very curious since Ford is said to discontinue the GT in the near future (2022), and the fact that we haven’t seen a mule in about five years. This mule showing up at a facility where they do EPA testing seems to indicate that the Ford GT program is far from over.
Even more noteworthy is that the mule features an oil cap that has been moved from under the glass to where the current trunk sits, suggesting that the mid-engine supercar could feature a new powerplant under its mid-ship engine cover. Currently, it’s unclear what exactly is taking place under the hood, but a source familiar with blue oval has hinted at the possibility of the 7.3 Godzilla mated to a couple of turbos. Interestingly, the 3.5 Ecoboost and the 7.3 Godzilla occupy about the same amount of space, mainly because the 7.3 is a pushrod V8 and the 3.5 has a DOHC.
