now that kind of firepower demands closer inspection and that means no more Pacific Coast Highway No the Ford GT needs a racetrack specifically my favorite racetrack Laguna Seca all right let’s see what it can do so we put it in track mode oh that’s nice drops down with authority all right ready here we go the board have done some clever stuff with software and new injection which they say eliminates turbo lag to keep the turbo spool down even when my foot is off the throttle but there’s always power always and there’s plenty of grip to under the nose to keep the nose stuck to the track stick all that together and this thing is sticking okay here we come into the corkscrew if you were to do that through the corkscrew at that speed in any other Ford ever you would be out there in the weeds and that’s the thing about this new GT it’s not like any other Ford ever see here’s what happens when a big company like Ford tries to do a supercar the designer has come up with a gorgeous sleek concept the engineers try to figure out a way to make it go really really fast and then the departments get involved there’s the guy from the cupholders department who wants to make sure there’s room for his 30 ounce big slurp then there’s the guy from the sports and leisure luggage department who wants to make sure this room for his golf sticks and then there’s the guy from the making sure fat guys fit department who wants to make sure there’s room for his fat guy now after all their demands have been met you don’t have a supercar anymore no no no what you have is an SUV but the GT feels like it’s been crafted by specialists who knew exactly what they wanted and God there’s a hydraulic steering no fancy electric it’s old-school it’s got a great feel turns in really sharp a software to help you do meters skits but there’s none of that here this one you’re on your own all on your own oh my god the balance is helping America can’t do supercars not from where I’m sitting so come on what’s not to like
