Turn Your Speakers Way Up And Let This Ford GT Race Car Put You On Blast

Someone revved the living crap out of a Ford GT race car at the Concours d’Elegance of America, and I was right there behind the exhaust pipe recording while simultaneously having an eargasm. Prepare to hear the most beautiful sound that has ever entered your cochleas.


After someone hooked up some jumper cables to a 2006 Ford GT race car, a woman hopped behind the wheel and fired up the greatest sounding engine I’ve ever heard—one that has fundamentally changed me as a person. Hold on to something firmly, and click play:

This car was in a line of Ford GTs sitting on the fairway at St. John’s golf course in Plymouth, Michigan. This particular one, called the Ford GT-R, was was owned by Doran Racing from Cincinnati, and was prepped for the GT-2 Class with the ultimate goal of racing the 24-hours of Le Mans.

Its GT-2 days are over, so the only chance you’ll have to see the car lets its 560-horsepower, 330 cubic-inch V8 loose is at Sportscar Vintage Racing Association events. And you should totally go, if only for the sound track.
