+1 Not only did they raise the bar with technology, also Aero. In addition to looking spectacular, the GT has a frontal area of 1.5 sqm. The competition is all in the 2.0 sqm ballpark. Ironically, ultimately that may have been a disadvantage with BOP, leading to higher top speeds driving power reductions/ weight increases.I think Ford deserves a crap load of credit for building a state of the art sports car, they really raised the bar with the technology they used. Their race car was probably closer to their street car than anyone's, the Ferrari would be the only other one that close IMHO. Ford didn't need to resort to massively radical changes to their car to be competitive. But we've got lots of people, even on this forum, who just can't seem to give them any credit at all for this car, which baffles me. But whatever.
