    The engine has been running in the IMSA United Sports Car Series for the past two years, so they should have some good performance data to build on.

    I think Rossi was referring to the fact that the turbo V6 is somewhat uninspiring for a supercar, irrespective of how it actually goes.  I guess the collectors who will get this Ford won't care that much....

    Looks to die for! But yes should have a v8 turbo. How about the 350GT engine with light pressure turbos on it! Yum yum!

    Too bad these will probably never get used and will be impossible to get.


    Re: The new Ford GT

    Found some new pics I hadn't seen before on netcarshows.com. My two grippes with this car is the rear overhang is a bit too long IMO, and the rear is slightly boring. But the front is so cool.

    The look reminds me of the Panterra.  Nice


    Re: The new Ford GT

    Looks fantastic. That blue is a great colour for it, too.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    When I see the car, I see a great potential to use it to go golfing. I can stick 2 golf bags between the 2 rear wheels and the central body. Maybe someone can do a custom made fitted one.

    Exactly. V6-turbo just doesn't do it for in such a car. Turbo-six is nice for a 911, but not for a car like this. Remember the fabulous Jaguar XJ220? Looks to die for and originally planned with a mighty V12, which was finally replaced by a boring V6-turbo. Though based on a racing engine this engine broke the neck of the whole XJ220 project and the Jag could never hold a candle to cars like a F40. I have a strong suspicion that it will the same in case of the new Ford GT.

    Red with white stripe. A little more footage of it towards the end of the video.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    Saw the car yesterday at the Dubai Autoshow and I must say that overall it is VERY nice, but it will take me some time to get used to the rear end. First the upper part of the overhang seems very long and the aero stuff they have made over the engine cover just seems very busy. The car at the show was metallic red, not a color I would consider if I was a potential buyer.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    Ford has enough history and collectors/fan base that the engine type is pretty irrelevant. Jag may have bombed with a 6, but there are only going to be 750 Ford GTs and there are probably thousands upon thousands of diehard Ford fans who'd love it no matter what.

    We might as well get used to smaller, turbo-charged engines as that's just the way the industry is going.


    Re: The new Ford GT

    It´s a shame to have this car with a louzy V6, I would rather have a 600Hp V8 atmo than a 900Hp V6 turbo.

    I think the red and white stripes suit it perfectly, best color combo I've seen so far.
