Coming from a man with dozens of supercars in his stable, this is saying a lot.
One bullet point in the contract that prospective Ford GT owners had to agree to in order to even be considered for the LeMans winning supercar was to share the car with the world in one way or another. That could be by taking it to car shows or charity events regularly, posting YouTube videos, or doing whatever it took to keep those gorgeous flying buttresses from seeing little more than the inside of a garage their entire lives. That’s a rule we happen to like because it gets us less fortunate enthusiasts well-acquainted with the car.
It's also a great way to bridge the gap between the 1% and the rest of the world by allowing a rare glimpse into the lives of those who don't even blink when plunking down six figures for a car. Entrepreneur Andy Frisella has just crossed that bridge by making the world’s first owner review of the new GT and we must say, his perspective is refreshing.
Instead of a seasoned journalist complaining that it’s too much of a track car and not great on the road, we get the raw reactions from the type of person who will experience the GT more than anyone else. But Frisella is no stranger to cars either, with a stable that would make any of us turn green with envy. He uses his experience in both owning and driving his vehicles into the ground to give us a firsthand account of what it’s actually like to enjoy the GT day in and day out. And enjoy he does. Frisella, who made his fortune in the fitness industry, loves nothing more than the visceral experience that a supercar with a big V12 engine can provide, and the fact that the Ford GT still manages to do that with half the cylinders is something he admires.
