Would You Drive A Ferrari Or A Ford GT Across South America?

A Ferrari 458 and a Ford GT — they're yours. You even have the world's largest salt flats to play on. But you have to drive across South America to get there, and you can only take one car.

Welcome to Morning Would, where we present you with some of the most desirable, controversial cars ever built and ask what you would do to drive one.


This picture was taken by Joe Weight, formerly of Kirkham Motorsports at Bonneville, but we're talking about a significantly bigger stretch of salt. A place where you can really stretch a supercar's legs.

We mean Bolivia's Salar de Uyuni and its 4,086 square miles of salt. For you, it is sadly 2,300 miles away from your current location, which is Rio.

People complain that supercars today are too sanitized and too easy to live with. Think you could drive one from Brazil, across Argentina, and up into the Bolivian Highlands? Would you take the Ferrari or the Ford?

Ford because RELIABLE. The last thing I want to drive across some of the hottest places on earth is the car that is most likely to spontaneously combust!
