Watch a Ford GT Hit 300.4 MPH in One Mile
In stock form, the 2005 Ford GT isn’t a particularly aerodynamic car. Ford’s engineers did their best to improve on the original GT40’s disastrous drag coefficient, but as performance development supervisor Kent Harrison told Car and Driver, their goal figure was “less than 0.39.”
What the GT platform is really good at is developing power. Loads of it. M2K Motorsports says their 300.4 mph Ford GT has over 2000 horsepower at the wheels, or roughly 2500 at the crank. No dyno can measure it properly. What’s for sure is that at Victoria Regional Airport, their still street-legal Ford was good for 174.5 mph, 240 mph, and then a record-shredding 300.4 mph (483.44 km/h) within a mile. That would be an insane pace from anything on four wheels, let alone a streetable car.

With Koenigsegg and Hennessey both aiming for the 300mph barrier with their latest multi-million dollar cars, the Jesko 300 and the Venom F5, Ford’s now 14-year-old supercar continues to surprise the world with its tunability, and stability beyond 250 miles per hour. Perhaps it’s no surprise that the Koenigsegg V8 also started out as a twin-turbo Ford Modular.
The Turnpike Racing League channel uploaded a video of the run from inside the cabin, which you can watch below.
