Ford launches GT Supercar to reduce driver distraction
Ford has unveiled a 10-inch digital instrument display that features text and race-inspired graphics intended to help reduce driver distraction
Like the glass cockpit in airplanes and race cars, the all-new Ford GT features an all-digital instrument display in the car’s dashboard that quickly and easily presents information to the driver, based on five special driving modes.
Ford said the digital instrument display is far advanced from the original Ford GT, when the cockpit was hardwired with a fixed set of analog gauges, buttons and knobs across the dashboard that had to address almost every situation.
Chief Engineer, Ford Performance, Jamal Hameedi, said: “Driver focus and attention are key with such high performance. We’ve designed the GT with a sleek digital instrument display that changes depending on driving mode in ways that are important and usable to the driver.”
Ford engineers and designers created customisable digital gauge cluster, elegant and able to tailor information to each drive mode, to help ensure customers taking the Ford GT to its limits.
