Evet, kendisi rekor kıran aracın aynısı.

Sitemizin sıkı takipçileri bu Ford GT'yi hatırlıyor olabilir zira kendisi geçtiğimiz aylarda bir azami hız testine çıkmıştı. Aynı otomobil, aynı bölgede ve aynı hava koşullarında tekrar asfalt üzerine çıkmış. Peki ama bu iki video arasındaki farklılık ne? Bugünün menüsündeki videoda GT'nin 4.3 kilometrelik bu pisti tamamlayış zamanı ölçülüyor.

Aracın stok 2017 model bir Ford GT olduğunu belirtelim. Yani kaputun altında çift turbolu 3.5 litrelik bir V6 bulunuyor. Bu V6 motor 650 beygir gücü üretebilirken 7 ileri vitesli DCT şanzıman ile eşleştirilmiş ve gücünü arka tekerlerine iletiyor. Videoda hava şartlarının da oldukça iyi olduğu belirtilmiş. Durduğu yerden hızlanmaya başlayan GT, önce 300 km/sa hıza, ardından azami hızı olan 340 km/sa hıza ulaşıyor.

Launch control'ü sayesinde kalkışta sadece 0.8G kuvvet uygulayan GT, 3 saniye içerisinde 100 km/sa hıza ulaşıyor. 7 saniye içerisinde 160 km/sa hızı gören araç, azami hız testine göre biraz yavaş kalıyor. Bu hızda bile 0.4G kuvveti aşmayan araç, 0-300 km/sa hızlanmasını yaklaşık 26 saniyede tamamlıyor.

Pazardaki en hızlı süper otomobil olmasa da GT'nin hala pist üzerinde bir canavar olduğu ortada. Bakalım bu GT ile karşılaşmaya devam edecek miyiz?

2017 Ford GT Reaches 182+MPH in a Standing Mile Test

The Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds (JBPG) runway, located in Merritt Island FL. is not only the widest and flattest runway in the world but also close to the longest. For over 10 years, Johnny Bohmer has been performing Straight Line Aerodynamic Testing for many manufacturers and thousands of vehicles here. The all concrete runway is 3 miles long with an additional 1000 ft. asphalt runoff on each end. The runway is also 100 yds. wide with an additional 50ft wide traffic lane on each side and has an elevation variance of only 1⁄4 in. from north to south over the 3 miles making this one of the flattest, large surface concrete platforms in the world. You hardly notice the 24 in. crown in the center of the runway due to the immense width of the surface. In todays’ time, the availability of concrete would make this runway impossible to build. The traction is also substantially better here than any street surface; not as good as a drag strip, but much better than the street.

Johnny Bohmer has developed a program to debunk myths and fact check the manufacturer’s claims of vehicles performance. While testing the vehicles, Johnny’s team will data log each vehicle and record the findings. These have been useful to many manufacturers because of the vehicles ability to drive at speed for 2.5 miles while still have a safe, shut down area. Performance videos will be posted to the public on the recently started, Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds YouTube channel.

The vehicles being tested are timed and speed checked with Garmin and GoPro interior monitoring systems. External timing and speed are performed by the International Mile Racing Association (IMRA) who is a sanctioning body accepted by numerous auto groups and the Guinness Book of World Records. Johnny and his team will routinely test 1⁄2 mile, 1 mile, 1.5 mile, 2 mile, 2.3 mile, 2.5 mile and 2.7 mile distances. Manufacturers come from all over the world to test many types of vehicles at JBPG including sports cars, race cars, tractor trailers, electric vehicles, autonomous vehicles, fire safety, law enforcement and the list goes on.

On March 9, 2019, Johnny Bohmer had a small group of vehicles testing at JBPG; ranging from the Bugatti Chiron and Porsche GT2RS to the Ford GT and Nissan GTR. The weather conditions that day are listed below.

10:00AM EST.
Temp: 23C/73.4F
Dew point: 18C/64.4F Humidity: 73%
Wind: 00000kt (0 mph)
Surface Temp: 25C/77F

3:00PM EST.
Temp: 26C/78.8F
Dew point: 18C/64.4F Humidity: 61%
Wind: 09008kt (9 MPH) Wind Direction: Southeast
Surface Temp: 33.9C/93F

We tested a 2017 Ford GT in the standing mile and were eager to see the results.

The professional driver performed a standing mile test and was able to achieve a surprising, 182.082 MPH (293.033 KPH) speed.

One of the main functions of the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds is to safely determine all aspects of a vehicle’s performance capabilities while determining the accuracy of the manufacturer’s claims.

Last but not least, please subscribe to the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds YouTube channel as we continue to perform more testing with some of your favorite vehicles.
