Here it is at last: the new Ford GT. Almost a year after it won the GTE PRO category at Le Mans, Autocar gets to drive 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 he takes 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.
