god almighty, that bitch was bad ***. i remember when they started that concept. my grandfather workins in the World headquarters in detroit. so i hear about concepts way before the public does. that thing is bad *** and sounds so good!
This man loved that car almost as much as I do.The Ford GT40 was the first "supercar" I fell in love with.I like the GT even better.
I would sell my organs to own that car. <- Not a joke
I don't give a **** what anyone says. Ford has a fan in me for stepping up to the plate and showing what it can do on a world stage. Make no minstake Ford did this for bragging rights. Ford did this for us, the American car guy.Even though very few of us will be able to own this car we can all take pride in the fact that it is beautiful and performs as well as it does.
no ford did it to stick it to chevy and specially chrysler an dthe viper.
this was originally was gonna be sold in europe only, where the laws are free enough u can actually enjoy a car like this properly.
How so? Neither Chevrolet nor Chrysler make "supercars".The Corvette and Viper will not be competing against the GT.
In my opinon they did this for the same reason they did it in the 60's. They did it because they can and they are proud of their company and what it can accomplish.The GT is a "halo" vehicle.It was built so young boys will get a poster or a model of it and grow up wanting a Ford instead of a Ferrari. The prestige of this vehicle will spill over to their entire product line. Vehicle manufacturers have been doing this for decades.

exactly. That's something ford is rubbing in the competition's face.
The viper was king in america, until the GT. itdoes cost 70k more than the viper or so.
The reason they did it in the 60s was to beat Enzo Ferrari...They even had the Brittish build it. Ford tried to buy Ferrari, and Enzo clowned them at the last second claiming he wanted to keep the "racing" part of ferrari. Ford was pissed.
this was the 60s..and until shelby stuck his hand in for the GT and the mustang, Ford had no muscle.
This is also to boost Ford as a make overall..specially when they can claim they have the best performing car in america period.
Regardless if you love or hate ford this car does one thing. Bends over the Italians, the Germans, the British(do they still make cars), and the Japanese and sticks it to them raw and hard. All while leaving some change over their competitors. I fully believe we need to stop these silly Detroit crosstown bickerings between Ford and GM and need to turn our horizons to the real enemy at hand for the American automakers...Europeans and Japanese.
