Ford Built 2017 GT Interior With Three Principles in Mind
When it was unleashed upon the world back at the North American International Auto Show, the Ford GT left the automotive realm gobsmacked with its beautiful and fierce exterior. For all the positive pub that the GT has gotten, its interior may not have gotten as much focus as it is due. Ford is looking to change that by giving us a more extensive peek inside the hottest thing on four wheels.
“Vehicle interiors have witnessed one of the biggest evolutions across the history of cars in recent years,” said Raj Nair, Ford Motor Company group vice president, Global Product Development. “Not only have we introduced a great deal of useful new technology into our cars and trucks, we consistently are adding better materials, improved design and increased features across the board, from high-end vehicles to entry-level segments. All of this leads to a focus on design languages that not only convey the right messages, but deliver on an enhanced user experience.”
The interior of the Ford GT was built with three key principles at heart: clarity of intent, innovation, and connection. As such, the interior is built with technology clearly organized in a logical and ergonomic fashion, the instrument panel conceived with a two-tier step design that makes better use of negative space, and materials that strike a natural balance between hard and soft textures.
Ford will be putting the GT’s interior on display at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, taking place this year from April 14th to 19th.
“Over the past few years, we have gained some incredible momentum with our designs,” said Moray Callum, Ford Motor Company vice president, Design. “As we move forward, we need to build on and evolve what we have achieved so far to continue to deliver exciting and fresh solutions. The interior design of the Ford GT builds on existing DNA and pushes it forward.”
