Ford’s fabulous GT takes its lucky

Ford's fabulous GT takes its lucky 1 I’m also on the allocation list for a 2018 Ford GT, meaning eventually I’ll own a new one, too. The good news? When I talk about the Ford GT I know from which I speak. The bad news? I’m arguably not the most unbiased person to get your Ford GT information from.

When you work at FoMoCo, you work for a family. Pericak, who, with a small group of volunteers, took over a padlocked basement room in Dearborn, Michigan, and labored on his own time and after hours for months on “Project Phoenix” before it was even approved, tells me with a faraway look: “To bring that trophy back and hand it to that family, to return the most coveted prize in family history, that’s what it was about.”

The body is almost shrink-wrapped around the tiny cockpit to reduce drag, a prerequisite of success at Le Mans. In last year’s race the GT took the Mulsanne Straight at 190mph, day and night. Freed of the regulations hobbling the racer, the road car is even faster, capable of hitting 216mph in V-Max mode.

We spent a day behind the wheel at Utah Motorsports Campus and surrounding roads to unravel the mystery. Let’s just get this out of the way right now: you’re welcome.
