This is the new Ford GT, the road-going version of Ford’s 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning sportscar.

Inspired by the GT40 that dominated at Le Mans from 1966 until 1969, the new GT was conceived as a race car first and then developed for road use in order to meet racing regulations. The £420,000 GT features a 647bhp V6 twin-turbocharged engine and a seven-speed automatic gearbox - and a top speed of 216mph.

Review: Ford GT

Can the GT live up to the legacy of its predecessor and match up to rivals such as the Ferrari 458 Speciale and McLaren 675 LT? Find out as Autocar’s Matt Prior puts the GT through its paces in this test.

No not really,not really an everyday Road Car either to be honest,a Toy to be thrashed round a Track?, well a bit,and the asking price about £400K now that is to much,there are Cars have that value which are just as quick and as much if not more fun and can be Daily drivers,take the money under £100K and yes, there is just as much fun to be had there to,maybe it's this you can have your fun for whatever you can afford....?

Wonder what they could do for a "road" car...

And to say that this car is the 'Le Mans' winner is somewhat misleading. Yes, they came in first, and third, and fourth I believe it was; but not because of their inherent qualities, merely because of the fiddling and machinations of Ford and the ACO. The ACO wanted a repeat of the Ford Ferrari battle of yesteryear for publicity reasons. The Corvettes were 'beaten', I use that word advisedly, by the dishonesty of others. They were and are the better car and, hopefully, will trounce Ford at this year's 24 Hours. What took place last year was outrageous manipulation of the rules.

It's an ugly piece of shit, made by an incompetent manufacturer and sold by a grasping, unsympathetic and incapable dealer network.

I don't need to put my name here, it's on the left

£420,000? What a joke.

    Having been previously impressed by the agile four-cylinder F-Type, now is our chance to try it in the UK and in open-top form. But can this entry-level Jaguar sports car hold off the impressive Porsche Boxster?

    Aston Martin's swansong for its venerable Vantage sports car allows it to bow out with its head held high, yet the performance AMR sub-brand's first outing leaves you feeling short-changed
