2004 Ford GT

Anybody catch the January issue of Car and Driver? Awesome article that pits the Ford GT against the Porsche 911 GT3 and Ferrari Challenge Stradale.
http://www.caranddriver.com/article....age_num ber=1

It's a good read. BTW, if you don't want to read it, the Ford pasted the other 2. It's 0-60 times came in at 3.3 seconds and its 0-150 of 16.9 seconds was 7 seconds quicker than the Porsche or the Ferrari. It also had a 2 second lap advantage over the other 2 cars. It also stopped 17 feet shorter from 70 than either of the other cars, and Car and Driver estimates its top speed to be at over 200 mph. It's a heck of a car for $139,000.

Like I stated in an earlier post, the ford gt is one of my dream cars. The original GT40, never lost a race it entered. That's the reason I consider it the best car ever :-). (Yes! Even more than lousy imports) Won lamans in 66 67 68 and 69 jeez, I didnt know about that. Anyways, its great to see that the car is worth the hype, saying it atleast runs as good as a Saleen S7, and if not better the only car they can think of that runs better is the Ferrari Enzo, 150,000$ to damn near 700,000$ Really impressive stuff! I wonder if they will make aftermarket parts for gt40's.
