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.

More Ford garbage

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

It's just a Ford, and seriously overpriced.

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.
