Ford and XBox have released a new promotional video which takes us behind of scenes of the automaker's design studio in Dearborn, Michigan.

Designed to highlight the Ford GT's inclusion in Forza Motorsport 6, the video gives us a unique look at how the new supercar was created.

While the car has modern styling, Ford Americas Design Director Chris Svensson said "When we analyzed the original GT 40, there were some very, very strong key elements that we felt were intrinsic to make sure that when people see this car, it's very obvious what it is."

The clip also reveals some interesting details including the fact that the car's carbon fiber dashboard is actually a structural component.

As a refresher, the Ford GT features a mid-mounted twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that develops more than 600 bhp (447 kW). It is connected to a dual-clutch seven-speed transmission which promises to deliver "near-instantaneous gear changes."
