Parkers overall rating: 4.8 out of 5 4.8

The Parkers Verdict

It’s fantastic to see a mainstream company like Ford producing the GT. Much of the technology – from the carbonfibre construction and almost absurdly powerful V6 engine to the clever aerodynamics and radical suspension – is deeply impressive, and the GT is a sensational drive, particularly on track.

But at £450,000 before taxes, it’s ludicrously expensive compared with rivals – even before you consider its blue-collar badge – and its V6 engine can’t deliver the spine-tingling soundtrack nor quite the same accelerative ferocity of the supercar establishment. That it also lacks on-road refinement is another negative.

Some may argue that rough edges are part of the GT’s race car-for-the-road appeal, but there’s no doubt that extra polish would make the GT even better to drive and own.
