With the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend, of course everyone has the new Ford GT on their minds—but let’s not forget the original revival of the Ford GT name. Holy crap, it is a glorious burnout machine and God bless the chill owner who was cool enough to enter it in a burnout contest. This burnout is delicious.
Much haterade has been spilled about the new Ford GT. It should have had a V8! The application process was insane! It doesn’t have enough horsepower! Enough is enough: one man who was lucky enough buy a new GT is here to say just drive the car first, because it’s one of the best cars he’s ever driven.
The 2017 Ford GT is, without question, a tremendous marvel of an exotic supercar, pushing the envelope in technology, performance, appearance, engineering, and cool features. It also shares its engine block with the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. This fact alone will cause many people—exotic car purists—to dismiss the GT as not…
One of the coolest things about the Ford GT (or any of the new crop of active-suspension supercars today’s upper class can buy) is how it squats down when entering its high-speed track mode.
A lot of people are going to compare the all-new 2017 Ford GT to the Ferrari 488 or the McLaren 675LT. This is reasonable: all are similarly-priced, turbocharged mid-engined supercars with distinct racing pedigrees. Except our friends at Carfection say the new GT has one key difference: it’s far more of a track car…
For many fans, GTLM is our favorite class in the IMSA WeatherTech Sports Car Championship, with all the major factory teams. Hopefully you’re not a Ford or Ferrari fan today, as both Fords, the lone Ferrari, one Porsche and one Corvette were all involved in a first turn pileup that forced them back in for repairs.
The No. 67 Ford GT was one of a couple cars had issues keeping its doors shut on the bumps and curbs of Britain’s Silverstone Circuit early on at Sunday’s 6 Hours of Silverstone. Fortunately, it didn’t seem to affect driver Harry Tincknell at all when it popped back open in the final five minutes of the race.
An open door must be really annoying at race speeds, as Andy Priaulx in the No. 67 Ford GT lost a position to the No. 91 Porsche during today’s 6 Hours of Silverstone after his Ford’s door kept popping open in the first hour of the race.
Well, the new Ford GT just got about a hundred times cooler. It turns out that the new mid-engine supercar was made to avenge the death of ‘Project Silver,’ a quarter-million dollar Mustang race car that was canceled before it saw the light of day.
I’ll come right out and say it, the 2005 Ford GT is a masterpiece of a modern exotic car. It looked and drove amazing then and it has not aged one bit. Now you can buy a very rare example that was owned and modified by Ford GT designer, Camilo Pardo.
To say these two teams have a little history with each other would be the understatement of the year. The No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE and the Ford GTs have been ruthless with each other for the whole race. Sebring’s Ford vs. Ferrari battles are the best half-distance replay of Le Mans we could’ve ever…
Two cars that qualified at the front of their classes were spotted sitting in pit lane while everyone else was doing their out-laps. One of the favorites to win the race, the No. 67 Ford GT, was spotted up on jack stands. That’s not how you start a race, man.
The all new Ford GT is a futuristic exotic car that pays homage to the legendary GT40, but some would say that the 2005 GT is perhaps a better embodiment of the retro design and character of original racer. Designer Camilo Pardo played a key role in the 2005 GT’s timeless looks.
Ford just released pictures of their new Ford GT Competition Series, a lightweight, track-focused version of their already bonkers supercar, and it looks every bit as purposeful and menacing as it should to sway the minds and wallets of the fickle supercar buying public.
The new Ford GT, America’s most anticipated new supercar, has just become a contender in the lightweight super-exclusive market that has, until now, been dominated by the likes of the Porsche, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. And from the looks of things, the competition has a lot to be afraid of.
Every once in a while, you come across someone in the background who totally steals the show. Sometimes a photobomb is so good, it’s practically elevated to an art form, and one of the best examples I’ve ever seen wasn’t done with a person, but with a big flag and a car at this year’s 24 Hours of Daytona.
If you’re still patiently waiting for the racing season to be back in full swing, that’s totally understandable. Most of us are. Let this wonderful photo from the Rolex 24 get your through your tough times.
A tipster sent in some pictures of a 2005 or 2006 Ford GT getting towed out of a ditch, and I just kind of stared at them for awhile pondering the cruelty of this universe and the perverse need for me to write about such things.
