I was reading about the new Ford GT, which I was lucky enough to drool over in person, when I read this little tidbit. If this doesn’t get your testosterone factories burning I don’t know what will.
You can reach 60 mph — without leaving first gear — in an amazing 3.4 seconds. Second gear is good for 95 mph, third for 135-plus. That still leaves three more gears.
Having owned a couple Fords, I cannot even fathom the amount of money necessary to keep that thing running.
