What Happened To This Ford GT Prototype Was Pretty Damn Embarrassing

Ford did say it's not 100 percent ready for production.

Like many of you, we immediately fell hard for the new Ford GT, revealed at Detroit last January.

Watching the race-going version at Le Mans next year will be an absolute treat. Also at around that time, the first 250 examples of the street-going GT will begin production. As it turns out, Ford still has a few kinks to work out.

To prove the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 had a good sound, a Ford rep attempted to start the car. Only it didn’t start.
