Wow...even owning one of these, there would still be that odd moment, when an gallardo passes and you say...dammit could have gotten five of these instead of an overpriced ford with an broken 6-speed automatic transmission from the 2013 Mustang GT

Also sound's like an 3L twin turbo ecoboost.
Haven't got a clue about this car, it's just a guess.

Pretty sick looking car. Would've thought a v8 setup would have been ideal for an American super car

Where are you getting 5 Gallardo's for 80k each? Mustang has never came with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission either.

That said, I'm not a fan of the new GT (loved the old one). Overpriced, underpowered for the price, wrong motor used. There is a reason the old ones are selling for more than they cost new - I don't see this car doing that unless they sell so few they force it to be super rare.

Ford GT is the only sport Carthage I would by from Ford. They are awesome but way out of my budget.

They will hold their value just the same, if not better. This GT is actually going to be more rare and exclusive, hand built cars by Multimatic. I would be surprised if it doesn't win 24hr Le Mans next year, on the 50th anniversary of their 1-2-3 finish in 1966 with original GT.

I still have a picture of a GT40 that I took at Watkins Glen in 1970 up on the wall over my dresser, where I see it every morning. The original GT40 was, in my mind, the most beautiful car ever made. This new one is more beautiful. That this design came out of Dearborn Michigan should make everyone in the US shed a red/white/blue tear. Say what you will about it being a Ford and turbo V6 motors and the rest of it, but there can be no doubt that this is the most exciting looking car of the last 20 years. Possibly the next 20 years too, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Guess not lol.

The new GT had to be my favorite car from this years auto show. Especially in the yellow with black stripes.

The design is amazing. Extreme but cohesive.

Ford killing it, again.

This car is unfucking real. While I'm typically anti-American cars, I have to say, Ford has really upped the ante of late.

After watching the video:
- Why, why, why didn't they just toss a couple turbo's or a supercharger on the new flat plan V8 in the GT350R? Make the power a car at this stupid price point SHOULD make and sound a hell of a lot better.

- WTF is up with that transmission? That's one hell of a clunk.

Yea, I was going to post that this guy can't drive for shit. But then again that box did not sound too good going into first. Maybe it's a rough cut, or just having issues. I certainly hope those clunking noises aren't normal.

That fking color though! Damn that thing is nice.

No way will this car win LeMans. Maybe in it's class. Which is GT. It won't stand a chance at the overall win.
