The colors of the concepts keep getting bolder & greater. Wonder how close the car is to beginning production.

I just wish it didn't sound so bad. They've got to fix the exhaust note.

The sound is god awful. I just hope they are still working on the final versions exhaust system. The new GT is being built to race not prance around city streets. That's cool in theory... but then hear how it sounds and realize there are some practical applications to prancing around.

That car is sick! And in a good way. I am in want mode, but at $400K I'm SOL...

Then again, my kids can pay their own way through college, right...

Thought this was cool. The rear wing, part of the Ford GTs active aerodynamic package, raises up, it also tilts downward (when conditions require) to create more down force and it has a retractable gurney-flap to provide even more grip when driver needs it. Ford said the wing changes form on the fly and they didn't specify all of the ways it did that (change form) but they did mention those three items.



Pretty cool stuff!

Looks like they are copying Porsche, maybe you should buy one of those? Oh wait you already did. I hope you got one with auto rear wing thing.

If you have an extra $400-450k burning a hole in your pocket... the application process has begun!

Application process is interesting. If you buy fleet fords, have a nice car collection, race and have a big web presence you are in.
