Cost & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Unless you’ve already ordered a GT, you won’t be able to buy one; Ford has already received some 7000 applications for the 1000 cars it’s eventually going to build, and it’ll divvy up the allocation pretty quickly.

What it doesn’t want, however, is cars languishing in big collections, so priority will go to people who actually plan to use their GTs. Expect to see cars at shows and events rather than turned around quickly on the used market for a big profit.

Despite the blue oval badge on the front, obviously this race-car-derived special isn’t going to be cheap to run, on any front. You don’t get much in the way of equipment, either, only the essentials: electric windows, cruise control and air conditioning. If you are lucky enough to be on the list for a new GT, however, there are personalisation options available.

Verdict

If you want a fast road car that you can use on track, the GT isn't it. Instead this is a race car with numberplates, making it awesome to drive but not as refined as its rivals

  • Mega performance
  • Terrific traction
  • Only 1000 being made, so it's exclusive
  • Race bred, and seriously noisy to drive as a result
  • Steering could do with more feel
  • Only 1000 being made, so you'll struggle to get one
