You should be excited.
How can a mainstream automaker manage to build, from scratch, a supercar on par with the very best from Italy and Germany? Well, Ford has done exactly that. And not for the first time. It all started back in 1964 when Ford first set out to take down Ferrari at Le Mans. The original GT40 was the result, but it wasn’t until 1966 when that feat was accomplished. Like the racing cars, the road legal GT40 has become a highly sought-after collectible.
Its successor was unveiled in 2005, and while the Ford GT never raced at Le Mans it did compete at various other GT1 and GT3 events. Production ended in 2006. And now Ford has bestowed upon us the grandson in the form of the 2017 GT. We still don’t know all its secrets but it’ll definitely be fast. So our question to all of you now is which of the two modern Ford GTs do you prefer: 2005 or 2017?
