The next Ford GT could be a hybrid car

Rumor has it that the sleek and sporty Ford GT is set to make a triumphant return — as a hybrid car. Prius be damned.

Popular car blog, Auto Express is claiming to have scored exclusive pictures of what is believed to be the next Ford GT. Auto Express believes that the new Ford GT will have an electric motor that will complement its revved up V8 engine with up to 600 horsepower. The front wheels of the hybrid car is rumored to be powered exclusively by the electric motor.

In addition to an electric motor, the body of the car is said to be an all-aluminum chassis with a weight of 1.5 tons — about 440 pounds lighter than the last Ford GT. The new Ford GT will reportedly go from 0-62 miles per hour in three seconds and hit a top speed of up to 200 mph.

A hybrid Ford GT would still cost a bundle, but that’s ok. As long as those rich Beverly Hills folk aren’t speeding around in gas-guzzling cars, I’d be slightly less annoyed by their orange tans and a little happier for the environment.
