Great skiing near Calabogie. Seriously if Ford was messing around they were smart enough to have the Speciale slower than the other two by a believable margin. It will be interesting to see how it matches the 488 and 720s.

I really dont get it, I saw the full race and it was no way cheating, how ever I cannot change some stubborn minds, so let it be cheating for you but it definitely was a worthy victory that Ford earned according to me,
http://blackflag.jalopnik.com/the-ford-gt-and-ferrari-488-teams-were-sandbagging-befo-1782160181
For ur kind info the Ferrari team too was sandbagging,
Now AMG was penalized for 5 mins for more than just sandbagging, they had the pit crew overtime as well and the fuel was still not cut off even after car was filled,

BR2+
Again I didnt mention anywhere it was a brand hate, but there is some unwanted hate, if you ask me I am a huge fan of McLaren and Mercedes brand way more than Ford. But that dosent mean Ford sucks, I say they are as good as GM or better, I like GM cars as well, GM makes worlds most sensible sports cars, the SS1LE,Z28,ZL1,Stingray,Z06,ZR1 etc are cars that can not just beat any auto brand on race track, insane value for money as well, my point is I see too much of hate for Ford GT from some like some simply say, its got V6 not a V8, etc just to complain.

Oh and about my "opinion". My opinion is that they should have been simply disqualified for cheating, as opposed to be given an unknown performance reduction overnight. Nobody knew would the penalty be too much or too little. At the end the car easily was the fastest.

On the other hand when the Mercedes AMG team pulled a similar trick, they were given a full 5 minute penalty. At least that would be more fair.

They cheated and they were handed a penalty. That's cheating already. that is a fact. It's not an opinion. Learn English.

They purposely sandbagged their car performance for the first race of the calendar and then also sandbagged for the practice at Le Mans. That is fact and that they did it with 100% intent to get the highest leniency on their bop so that they'd have a much higher chance to win Le Mans.

You saw my profile pic hence you know I know nothing about desirable cars? Then by judging your profile pic you must not even have ANY desire for anything and you know anything at all. Just stfu. Sorry I hurt you so much fanboy

+saxy Cheated at Le Mans? Ok, please share your "wisdom" and provide facts and not your kanuk opinions. Anyway, it doesn't matter what you think about the Ford GT because we both know that will own one. The EcoBoost is the future and the future is already here with a lot less displacement, a lot less weight, a lot more power and a lot better fuel mileage. When I saw your profile pic, it's most obvious and unmistakable that you're not intelligent enough or educated enough to know what a real car is because you know absolutely nothing about the Ford GT or any other highly sought after car. So climb back into your canyada cave and hibernate for the rest of your most unimportant life.

I respect that opinion about ecoboost, but in Le Mans they didnt cheat
Sure the pole positions were handed to them because of the boost they had, but after BOP, the boost was significantly downgraded between 3000-5500 rpm and the race was a close win, not an easy win, it was all Dirk Mullers doing, he drove superb specially after the 12 hrs stint , Joey Hand was OK but Dirk drove supremely well, there is no doubt about it, and earned that victory

Now yes Ford does a lot for PR I agree and the GT is one car that does a lot for them, regarding Top Gear lap time, sure its a disappointment, they didnt allow for lap times, one explanation that was given in Top Gear viewers forum was that the day outside was WET and were not ideal for setting Lap times as per Ford, another explanation was that the car that Ford has given for reviewing was a review car, the car on Top Gear track was a customer car that had just 200 odd miles on odo and had no proper break in .
I agree the new Ford GT wont have the supremacy to fight the new Huracan Performante and the upcoming 488 Speciale

they hand selected buyers based on their social media presence

Proves that they reaaaly reaaaly care about PR. And that's why they didn't want Top Gear to do lap time.

I don't hate the Ford GT. I just don't like how they cheated at Lemans, and that they hand selected buyers based on their social media presence.

Oh and I don't like their very un"eco" ecoboost.

Good for them for charging such prices and selling so well. I wouldn't mind them doing better. I have some of their stock

I dont understand why you guys hate the Ford GT and Focus RS so much, anyway coming to the point, it was no way lineancy from FIA, do remember that the pole sitting Ford GT was not the one that won the race, there was even certain circumstance where the Ford could have lost the race because of 68 loosing time at pit stops and because the 98 Aston had given the 67 a kick on its back during night which almost put the 67 into the grass,
I saw the full race and it was a plain WIN, no excuses there, the no 2 Ferrari too was on tail and they even appealed for the penalty and the penalty was a whopping drive through that made the GT loose 50s ,
I dont know how much U kno about racing but 50s gap cannot be a lineant pinishment, it was a huge punishment and yet the GT recovered and GT won by just 30s or so, it was really a close battle,
I even thought the GT lost while taking penalty but Dirk Muller was so damn consistent that he pulled back 15-20s of the lost time,its not just Ford GT,but the whole te was incredible,
Now just quote me any suffecient race victory or even some historic moment that NSX had been in other than being a budget super car.
And ShelbyGT500 race car, whats its significance here,there are a lot of kit race cars that are extremely fast, so whatI, see the new Ford GT is made specifically commomorating the 1967,68,69 Le Mans victory where Ford defeated Ferrari. Thats why its so special just like 675LT,458 Speciale,etc

FastesrLaps
I saw Topgear episode, they didnt mention about GT lap times, I am too disappointed, and did Top gear say Ford didnt allow em to set lap times? Just enquiring?


User avatar

saxy  3w ago

Ford took the penalty and still easily won, just shows how much they were cheating, so much that not even the FIA could expect. But come on, the FIA was always going to give them leniency. A win by ford would give Le Mans better publicity to the United States.

NSX hasn't won a race? Depends what do you mean, these gt race cars are almost completely different from their real road cars. I'm sure the GT500 racecar has won many races, and would run rings around the ford gt race car since it's even faster than lmp2 cars.

Shame on Ford for not letting Top Gear do timed lap at the TG test track.

What I meant with beating is beating the GTs lap time at this track,
Also Honda NSX has won no race before dosent have a vibrant history running in its blood line other than being a reliable super car,and as far as driving is concerned almost every review states the new NSX is good but not as great as even a 650s,R8V10+,etc
Also Ford didnt do any cheating, the BOP had punished Ford GT and they had run the whole Le Mans race with less boost than what they needed, yet they won, also the Ford had taken penalty twice as well and yet at the end of the race had a 40s lead over the leading Ferrari.

Also
BR2+
The Ford GT is special, the history behind this car has some pedigree, like Ford vs Ferrari rivalry, the 4 time Le Mans beating,etc
I am pretty sure the 675LT is special, if so the Ford GT is special, thats how it works,

My point is why couldnt have McLaren built over 5000 675 LTs, but they restriced it and all of them had 450k+ USD, why?
Its got the legacy of the old Long Tail F1,
That aside the 675LT is just a high powered low curb weight 650s, with some aero changes, dont you agree?

Same way Ford isnt interested in selling a base Ford GT like the 650s is for McLaren, they straight away shot up to the 675 LT, Ferrari Speciale, 911 GT2 RS league,

Again some may like this idea..majority wont because its not accessible,

Now did U see the new Mustang GT digital instrument cluster, its 80-85% same as the Ford GTs instrument cluster,

The 2019 shelby GT350 R will get a new Getrag DCT600 DCT gearbox , the same family gearbox that Ford uses for the new GT,
So thats what I mean with future pointing of new GT.

..So either someone likes it they love Ford, Or the dont praise every aspect of it and there a Hater, Isnt that how it usually goes?(Cough Ferrari fanboys)

And it really is just another supercar, Price has no barrings on how special a car is, Does great technology make a car special? In my eyes no, Simply because soon every car will be on par, Unless its like 20years ahead or some shite, And so what if it has a high powerd V6? A Nismo GTR does too, The new GT2 will have even more power with a F6, Each company has a most advanced in there lineup, Nothing new, And i highly doubt this is the closest thing to a race car you can get, Unless you mean just Fords. And there is no trace whatsoever of GT interior inspired on the 2018 Mustang, It barely looks any different then a 15 mustang. And do you honestly think the people who Ford chose to buy the car(Which is ridiculous) even know of its heritage? Most of them anyway. Just like the LF-A this car is gonna be sold to A-list celebrity's because Ford wants there car to be seen, Dunno why since nobody can buy it..

Yes you did. "if at all there is a car that could dethrone the GT it should be a Corvette ZR1 or a Zora or a 488 Speciale"

If you want to say because it's "fords most advanced car" hence should deserve this money, well so is the NSX to Honda... there is definitely more technology going in there. So let's not go there. The price is what people are willing to pay, and that NOBODY at the time knew about its performance figures. So it's not about performance.

And btw to be fair, I own Ford stock. They have the best selling truck, sports car and van. And they were the only American car company not to go bankrupt. But this Ford GT thing, plus the cheating at Le Mans last year isn't their finest moment for me, though it boosts brand image for casual car people

I never claimed its Ford GT is better than 675LT,Speciale,etc. My point is it is in same league as these cars, see Ford is a mainstream car brand and is father of mass production, never used to be an exclusive car maker like McLaren, Aston Martin,Lambo,Ferrari etc
The new GT is Fords 1st exclusive car, the most technologically advanced car since One Ford,

See you seem to be hostile on all Ford cars threads, keep brand hate aside , seems like Ford isnt a brand that suits your taste, but that dosent justify being a hater on almost all Ford cars threads. I love Fords because I feel they make smart affordable fun cars like Fiesta ST that I drive,

Agree with that, my point is Ford uses the heritage the GT40 has to market the current GT, its a good marketing technique, also as far as whats been rumored the GT is not about all show and no GO, frankly the 2005 GT was that, it had 550 HP stock but could barely stand with a 911 Carrera of that time in terms of lap times and was way slower than Carrera GT etc,
But this time around things are going to change, the new GT is all about SHOW and GO, to be faster than 675LT is no way an easy task, 675LT itself is almost the limit of what a RWD super car can do with an open diff setup, if at all there is a car that could dethrone the GT it should be a Corvette ZR1 or a Zora or a 488 Speciale or a 720S, all top tier performance super cars,
So this time the super exclusive Ford GT is an entire opposite of what 2005 Ford Gt was, again a pivot in Fords car making direction showing Ford can make such high end cars along with regular Fiesta to Expeditions

And let's not forget - this is a great time for selling supercars. People are drowning in cash. Literally choking to death. It's like 2007, but even bigger. And prices reflect that. Even cars reflect that. Look at how V12 engines are coming back in the luxury segment. People don't care about fuel costs or anything. It's just spending cash and posting pictures on Instagram.

I don't think there has to be any justification for why a car like this costs so much money. It is 100% seller's market here. These cars can be priced at anything manufacturer decides, they will always get sold out and sold out fast.

With limited production supercars like this, there is no competition. They are all unique in their own way and not comparable. There is little cross-shopping. Those who want this will get this and nothing else will do. And vice versa.

See if it was just another super car, Ford would have priced it around 150k USD and would have had some V8 instead of this high power ecoboost V6,
This car is in reality the most advanced car Ford has ever made,like McLarens P1 and LaFerrari etc..
Ford says this is in reality the closest a daily driver can get to a actual racing car, now regarding Heritage the heritsge Ford GT holds is special, it was a challenge that Ford took to beat Ferrari back in 66, and they did it, see I agree Vettes had good history but it is late 05 when Vette made its 1st Le Mans win, winning in 60s was way bigger challange, and do remember back in 60s GT LM was the highest class unlike today where LMPs rule.

Now I agree Porsche,Lambo,Masersti all has superb heritage,just like that Fords biggest heritage in racing history is Le Mans win of 60s,
And now in 16 too they did it and I hope the 17 Rolex is a race that BR2+ saw as well.
This is a piece of history for Ford because this is Fords future, just look at 2018 Mustang interior ,its Ford GT inspired, there is a lot that Ford learnt building this new GT that will trickle down to regular cars in future, so this car according to Ford is what all other Ford cars in furture will follow and in that aspect its the grestest car Ford has ever made in its entire 100+ years of car making, and thats precisely why they charge a premium and need just selected customers driving it.

I am too not a huge fan of this thinking from Ford but this is the marketing Ford has adopted, some may like it some may not, but the fact remains that this is Fords biggest and most exclusive car, just like LaFerrari,McLaren P1,675lt,Ferrari 458 Speciale,.

So heritage decides the final price of a car?..If thats the case the 911s and Corvettes would be millions..

People really need to stop bringing up LeMans from 50 damn years ago, That was a COMPLETELY different car, Similar recipe, But much different, And yes it is just another supercar, Same way a 675LT is another supercar, Viper ACR another supercar, F12 TDF another supercar, C7 ZO6 another supercar, Huracan another supercar, Every car is just another supercar.

And no, Not only people who no about the GT will buy it, Ford decides who will buy it, And simply if they like the car, Regardless of heritage, Theyll buy it.

is this a great car? Fan mufkn tastic! But dude, Get off Fords D already.

The car is worth that much because this name plate challenged Ferrari and beat then not once but 4 times , its got a lot of heritage built in.
Even Bruce McLaren the founder of McLaren haf his dreams set and realized only after being a Ford GT40 driver. So now do you think its just another supercar?
See people who know about the GT will only buy it. There has been some serious engineering gone into making of Ford GT, sure there is nothing ground breaking here but its an instant classic, a Le Mans winner a a Ferrari fighter reborn.
