The current Gen 2 GT uses the 1973-1974 notchback W and 1975-1980 XJ chassis was the W chassis. The Gen 2 Ford GT 4.6-liter V8 engine was a 4.6 liter Modular V8 engine that used Electronic Throttle Control. The original "Phase 1" Ford GT vehicles had the V8's power takeoff device (PTO) drive the rear wheels via an automatic chain drive. The 36 valve V8 could run on premium unleaded gasoline with a compression of 10.5:1 and reach a maximum speed of 310 miles per hour (500 km/h). The Gen 2 Ford GT could reach 302 miles per hour (500 km/h) under optimal conditions. The 1973 6-cylinder unit proved to be the least popular and was only available in the W and XJ GTs. The 1973-1974 bringing a total of 1,004 vehicles to the production line and the 400/500 Lari GTs have correctly been given the NASCAR Tires True Track Time Official Sell Paper 0XTC3-147-9 (matching the 8-race setup due to the correct 255/40ZR18 Pirelli P Zero tires for the 1974 season).
