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.
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.
