    How Does the Ford GT Order Process Work?
    Shmee150



    Published on Oct 25, 2016
    The next update in the progress towards my Ford GT arrives in the form of Ford's Welcome Guide and introduction to the Ford GT Concierge and the order process.

    At this stage I do not yet have my Order Window Notification which is due in the near future and that will tell me when to expect the process to start and ultimately a delivery date for my car itself. I shall keep you in the loop all the way through the road to this spectacularly exciting car!

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    Very cool looking,
    But at near idle, on the video at least, it sounds like my wife's 2.4 4 cylinder.

    What a gorgeous looking car but v6?

    I'd rather have the Lambo Aventador v12 even if it's slightly slower

    Can't image spending 1/2 million on a depreciating asset though - no matter how much fun

    Nice, but I am partial to older stuff. Maybe in 30 years I will get one if I am still kicking.

    Sad but the Ford GT, the so-called American Super Muscle car, is made in Canada by Multimatic Inc. which is based in Markham, Ontario. Ford claims that the choice of manufacturers is because carbon fiber bodies are still an immature technology and there is not a lot of selection of available vendors.

    Funny! The US aftermarket is flushed with numerous carbon fiber parts made by numerous companies. Something doesn't wash with that explanation.

    At least have the decency to market it as a Canadian Super Muscle car. Give our neighbors north of the border some credit.

    Discovering the FORD GT!
    Shmee150



    Published on Dec 11, 2016
    You most likely know that I have the new Ford GT on order for 2017/2018, but before now I've never had a go in the previous generation car. During my visit to Top Line Motors in Dubai I was chatting to the owner and we decided to take his gorgeous example out for a drive to discover more about it and the history of the 1st gen of my future car.

    There's been a lot of doubt of the move from a supercharged V8 to a twin-turbo V6, but the new car retains a lot of the looks and iconic features that made this such a special machine from the start. Join me for a look around the 2004 Ford GT before a test drive with Nader where we just chat about the experience.

    A big thanks to Top Line Motors for the opportunity: https://www.instagram.com/toplinemotors

    Ford GT vs McLaren P1 Christmas SHOWDOWN!
    Shmee150



    Published on Dec 25, 2016
    Merry Christmas! For a bit of fun, we put the all new Ford GT and the McLaren P1 up head to head on the streets of London; from a drag race to a tunnel blast - but with a twist because they just so happen to be 1:14 RC models!

    Ben joins me for a bit of a mess around that just so happens to take us to the location of an actual P1, whereby my model is reunited with the very same car as my 500,000 subscriber special last year! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KeGiQ...

    I hope you're having a great Christmas, do let us know in the comments where you are watching from?

    Why is the Ford GT Stuck in a Corner!?

    Published on Jan 13, 2017
    It's Autosport! Let's go for a quick look around some of the highlights in the exhibition part of the show before we get tomorrow to sneaking a peak behind the scenes at the Live Action Arena; where I'm joining the presenting team.

    There is a lot to see, and far more than I've captured on camera however I am taken by surprise that a car as awesome as the new Ford GT is squeezed away in the corner!

    Things I Didn't Know About FORD GT! Inside My Future Car
    Shmee150



    Published on Mar 13, 2017
    Time to finally sit inside a new Ford GT and take a look around the various displays, controls and generally learn more about it from Dave Pericak of Ford Perfomance. It turns out that Ford have been holding a few tricks up their sleeves and this is an opportunity to explore some of them and see what this car will really be all about when it's out on the roads.

    Ford GT review | Ford's new Le Mans-ready supercar tested | Autocar
    Autocar



    Published on May 11, 2017
    Here it is at last: the new Ford GT. Almost a year after it won the GTE PRO category at Le Mans, we've driven Ford's new GT supercar in road-going trim.

    Ford will build just 1000 of these GTs over the next four years. Each costs $450,000 and each is impossibly trick. The tub is carbon fibre and seats two occupants close together. Behind it is a 3.5-litre engine making a whalloping 647bhp.

    But it's in the suspension and aero where the real genius lies - and why the GT is such a competitive racing car.

    But does that make it a good road car?

    Join Matt Prior as we take the GT onto the roads in Utah, and onto the track at Utah Motorsport Campus, home of the Ford Performance Racing School, to test it to its limit.

    It won at Le Mans in 2016, 50 years on from its predecessor's drubbing of Ferrari, but how does the road-going version of the Ford GT stack up when the opposition is arguably even tougher away from the track? DRIVETRIBE's Jethro Bovingdon delivers his verdict…

With a 647hp turbocharged V-6 engine, carbon-fiber bodywork, and active aerodynamics, the new GT brings state-of-the-art race car technology to the road.

    My FORD GT Countdown STARTS HERE!
    Shmee150



    Published on Jul 3, 2017
    The Ford GT excitement is real and the journey to my future car starts here! I jump onboard the new GT for the first time for a full blast run with Harry Tincknell, driver of the full race car in the WEC for Ford.

    Presented on the move for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, we can take a look at the Ford GT in the Michelin Supercar Paddock before jumping in with Harry. Next it's the trip down towards the start line, surround by incredible cars but also a chance to see and demonstrate how the Track mode works, instantly dropping the car by 50mm into a race mode. We line up at the start and then comes the time to fully experience the sense of occasion that comes with this car; the noise of the twin turbo EcoBoost V6 taking me by pleasant surprise.

    A big thanks to Ford, and also to Harry for the drive!

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    I shot this last week in Miami. I can't seem to avoid road debris and stone chips on any car. Driving an expensive car in Florida is deliberate depreciation.

    Same here. My car was literally sand blasted by a dump truck without a tarp hauling sand down I-65 in heavy traffic, 4 lanes but nowhere to go while a cloud of fine sand poured or misted into a cloud out of his truck into the air.

    Props to Ford for their new 10 speed automatic. Finally realizing that more HP just meant more tire smoke

    Sub 4 seconds 0-60 is the new benchmark for sub 60k cars

    Meanwhile the sub 3 second club is still hovering around 100-200k

    I do love the design. IMO it's better than Ferraro or Lambo
