                 The New 2018 Ford GT Races into Friendly Ford

      (LAS VEGAS) - Friendly Ford, located on Decatur and U.S. 95, had their most unprecedented unveiling of the all-new 2018 Ford GT showcasing the delivery of the new 647- horsepower Supercar.

     Steve Coates, Ford GT Ambassador and Delivery Specialist is a Northern England native who has traveled all over the U.S. delivering Ford GTs. The former race car driver and high-performance vehicle mechanic jumped at the chance to deliver the all new Ford GT to Las Vegas.

     "I am currently on a 20-city tour right now, delivering Ford GTs, but I was blown away when we came to Friendly Ford...Showgirls, champagne and decorations...this delivery was truly Vegas-Style. You know we don't do this every week, this is special and Friendly Ford made this event happen in Las Vegas," said Coates.

     Coates loves being around cars and being around the new Ford GT. "This is not your granddaddy's car company. Ford is on the cutting-edge of everything. The things that are being tested on GT will trickle  down to the rest of the Ford lineup," said Coates.   The new Ford GT is also a promotional tool to put Ford in the limelight. Ford has a strong grasp on technology and has a race proven street legal Supercar to prove it.       History tends to repeat itself when it comes to Ford's Supercar repertoire. Ford established their Supercar presence when they wanted to outrace the Ferrari in the 1960s. The prestigious Le Mans was the stage to do it, and Ford was determined to defeat the Ferrari. Ford designed the Mk IV GT 40 that won Le Mans in 1967 and is the only car designed and built entirely in the United States to achieve the overall win at Le Mans. This drive and determination has propelled Ford into the spotlight for performance and has established a permanent place in the race car driving community.     "The history of this car is unbelievable," remarks Ed Olliges, Chairman of Friendly Ford. "The sheer will-power and dedication of Ford engineers has propelled Ford to dominance with one of the best cars on the market. With that mindset… all Ford can do is win."   The new Ford GT boasts a carbon-fiber body with a 647-horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost ® engine. The teardrop shape of the Ford GT is a result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. With a top speed of 216 mph and a zero to 60 in 2.8 seconds, the new Ford GT is a force to be reckoned with. Olliges took delivery of number 177 of 2000 Ford GTs to be made over the next 4 years.   Friendly Ford is located at 660 North Decatur just off U.S. 95. Friendly Ford is the only dealership in Nevada to win the President's Award a record 18 times, Ford's Highest honor for complete customer satisfaction.
