    Wow this looks fantastic. EcoBoost twin turbo V6 with 600+ HP. This should give both Ferrari and McLaren something to think about. Let's hope it's made for multiple years and they make as many as the market can handle. BTW the blue used on the FGT and GT350R is called liquid blue.

    This car looks like a cross between a Ford GT and a McLaren.

    It's gorgeous.

    And its blue. ;D

    Off to buy lottery tickets. LOL

    that is a big "WOW I want one..." I was not surprised it got the ECO-boost for race trim...maybe the 5.2 will end up an option for the street version...???

    I'd be tempted to sell my first born for one of these. Ok, maybe cash in my 401k...

    I'm glad Ford went contemporary on the design, and resisted going retro. It's at once over-the-top aggressive, voluptuous, and endlessly intriguing to look at. Every angle is fascinating, even looking down from above. It's a real melange of design elements...there's some LaFerrari in there, some Porsche 918, some Lotus Evora, some Lambo Aventador, some McLaren 650S. Some GT40 and S550 Mustang is also evident. Just wild!

    Ford outdid themselves...Bravo!!

    The rear wheel pods could have a rack of missiles, should be the next Bond car? Need to start a guessing thread on the cost? I'll start with 198,000. Might be low?

    Styling is subjective, but I don't see a bad line on that puppy!

    Damn........I may have to go back to work...

    Agree on the want one...bad. Unfortunately I'd only want to drive it 6/10s on the track, which is an oxymoron. I will be curious how the turbos will affect cooling on the track. I talked to many FGT drivers who had cooling challenges with the blower on track. I would have thought the NA 5.2 with FPC would run cooler.

    I thought they have been using that motor on the track in races for quite some time, if so then I doubt there are any issues to be worked out.

    I agree, I'm sure this is a version of the TT V6 used in the IMSA Daytona Prototypes for the last season.
    There might be some minor teething issues for this specific application, but the architecture is sound.

    There also looks to be a lot of air flow other/under/and through the car.

    The only "paint" job better than that blue is this:

    Would like to see a shot of the car with the doors open. Looks to be about as easy to get in and out of as an MBZ gullwing.

    More GT engine sound porn. Nice growl, turbo whine...I think it sounds pretty evil. For a V6. Love to hear it at full chat.

    I hope they actually offer this color, with those stripes as well.

    I'm really tired of Ford displaying colors, wheels and features to introduce these cars at car shows and then scaling back once they hit production
