Justin Verlander Tweets To Ford Asking How To Get The New GT

By: Evan Jankens

If you were on social media Monday, then you heard about the new Ford GT, which was revealed with fanfare at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The car features a 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine that pushes out 600 horsepower.

It's the hottest car out there. How hot is it? Even Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander took notice of the car.
And his girlfriend is swimsuit supermodel Kate Upton, so he's a pretty good gauge of what's hot.

Verlander tweeted, "Dear ford... How do I go about getting on the list for one of these beauties?! #Detroit #motorcity… "
