At last, we find out if the highly touted Ford GT can go toe to toe with a fabled Ferrari and a killer Porsche.

From Car and Driver magazine.

Ford's GT could be the most overhyped car of the decade. We admit we're in part to blame, paying tribute with 12 pages in this magazine to date, covering every square inch of the reprised Le Mans champion, every engineering iteration, every development Ford threw our way. We've driven early mules with nonspec engines, and unfinished prototypes, but up until now, we'd never strapped our test gear onto the car to find out what we all want to know: How fast is it?

Apologies if this is a :repost:

That GT is insane.

But I'm just going to sulk that they put the GT3 behind the Ferrari, for some pretty flaky reasons.

At least they aren't going half arsed about it like another car wearing a GT badge that we all know off... good to see them building a better image for themselves. GM has nohting to answer with, not even a Callaway Corvette!

Well if the Australian Ford GT was $150k USD then it wouldn't be half-assed. But damn the US GT is Creame Le-Pants (TM) material. :sperm: :AAHHH:

Yeah but the second you take one Ford will release a GT with a V6 thats twin turbo that will have the same performance of the SC V8 but with lower figures and lower price point ;-)
