Corrected results:
Reduced driveline efficiency (from 1) back to 0.85 - top speed drops from 334.0333 to 309.9246km/h
Reduced drag coefficient rating (from 0.43) to 0.35 - top speed rises from 309.9246 to 334.0043km/h (not exact, but extremely similar to original result)
Reduced rear axle load coefficient (from 0.669) to 0.668 - 0-60mph matches once again (here's the funny part: Ford didn't technically claim a 0-60 time, but they approved of Road & Track's initial 3.8sec figure before Car & Driver went on with the very optimistic 3.3sec figure; Ford later republished Motor Trend's figure of 3.4sec on their own website.)

New and corrected results:
0-100km/h in 3"94
0-200km/h in 11"16
0-300km/h in 31"96

If the 3.364:1 differential ratio was replaced in the standard GT with a 3.9:1, then the 0-100km/h time will remain the same, but the 0-200km/h time will drop slightly to 10sec flat, but the 0-300km/h time will rise to 27.5sec. Top speed is now 204.2616 mph (328.7271 km/h).

This car is in my Top 3 best sounding US cars. Alongside the Dodge Demon and the original Charger R/T. A shame we'll probably never have this again.

The 11.2-second quarter-mile car tested by Motor Trend may have been modified. There is no way in hell a stock Ford GT is trapping 131 mph, when a Ferrari Enzo and a Porsche Carrera GT both are trapping only a few miles per hour more with 50-100 hp more and 200 lb less in the same test.

I BELIEVE, not that it's true, but probably the case, that it was a Hennessey HPE700 model.

http://hennesseyperformance.com/vehicles/ford/ford-gt/2005-2006-ford-gt/2005-2006-ford-gt-hpe700-upgrade/

That car has similar performance. 0-60 mph in 2.9 sec and 1/4-mile in 10.9 sec at 134 mph.

I have theory that the Ford GT used in the October 2004 Motor Trend test probably wasn't stock after all. But then again, I don't trust American magazines from decades back. Car and Driver also faked numbers for some of its muscle cars.

@FastestLaps
I found another source which mentions the 11.9 0-200 kph time, same as the Dodge Viper SRT10 Coupe.

I think today with a professional driver this could do the 'Ring in ~7:45. It's a much older car than a Ferrari 458 Italia or a Camaro Z28, so don't expect any faster.

There is no difference in torque figures no matter what country its sold in.


User avatar

uptownfunker  7y ago

@All the comments from 7 years ago: The AMERICAN version of this GT has 500 tq; the 571 number is for the EUROPEAN GT.

EDIT: FastestLaps is actually a global lap-oriented website, so it cannot have pages that are too specific, especially with the waste of having less laptimes. 500 or 571 lb-ft, 542 or 550 hp, it doesn't really matter!


User avatar

uptownfunker  7y ago

By the way, a lot of American magazine tests show less than 12 seconds at over 124 mph (200 kph). Maybe except for the Car and Driver Aug 2005 (Ford GT vs European exotics) and the AutomobileMag test (GT vs Viper vs Corvette Z06).


User avatar

uptownfunker  7y ago

Delete either the 0-200 kph time or the 1/4 mile time; one of them is unnecessary.

For this to do 0-200 kph in 12 s yet do the 1/4 in 11.2 at ~211?

luckyluke  7y ago

Your calculation can't be right. If it would reach 200 kmh = 125 mph in 9.9 s it would definitly reach 131 mph faster than the 11.2 s. You could calculate it by:
11.2/131*125 = 10.7
I know that assumes a linear acceleration and underrestimates the capability a bit, but we can't know how fast it accelerates at 125 mph from just the quarter mile time and trap speed. If we consider this it may be something like 10.4 or so.


User avatar

uptownfunker  7y ago

There might not be any official or tested 0-200kph results below 11.8 seconds for this car, but with an 11.2@131.2mph 1/4 mile trap@speed published here (M/T 10/04: Enzo v. CGT v. FGT), the admins should really change the 0-200kph time published here (12.0 s) to:

Step 1: 1+(1.312-1.243)=1.069

Step 2: (11.2/131.2)/1.069*124.3

Solution: 9.93 s

I, for one, know that the Calculation area only estimates power-to-weight and power-per-liter ratios, and x-mile distance times@speeds whatsoever.

This car is very charismatic, one of the coolest vehicle ever imo.
But it had few problems, Clarkson bought one, and was complaining about few issues.
But now they also plain to make EcoBoost bi-turbo V6 which can be cool beceause its mean that this car can be user friendly, economical and reliable.
They gonna show it in Detroit '15 but... only 1200 units gonna be made.

Looking foward for this new project, some guys will complain about 6cylinders, yea sure We all want V8, V10 but... get real, its more just only about the engine and cylinders.
