The Ford GT is Better than Anything from Europe

History

Get ready for some Ferrari and Lamborghini fanboy backlash.

Many will defend Italian supercars until the end of time, and that’s totally fine. But every now and then something else comes along that makes those Italian machines seem, well, ordinary. The Acura NSX did that back in 1990 and the Ford GT did it in 2004. With its supercharged 5.4-liter V8 that produces 550 horsepower, the GT came with a six-speed manual and not some high-tech dual-clutch. Like its design inspiration, the original GT40, the GT was all about speed and looking good. It’s still the best car Ford has ever produced.
