    Thread: The GT40/Ford GT Appreciation Thread

    1. 09-06-2012 06:47 PM #1
      Okay, i've thought about doing an appreciation thread for the gt40 for quite a while now, because i've been counting down the days to my ford gt rally next month at nola motorsports park.. Post your favorite gt40/ford gt pictures, videos, le mans, anything gt40/ford gt related. Anything from the original gt40 to an new aged twin turbo ford gt monster!

      I'll start with some:

      It's a rally and a three day track event at nola motorsports park down in new orleans. I'm bringing the q1 and he's bringing the gt's. We'll both take turns driving all three.

      Here's a short video of a 3D Ford GT40. It was modeled in Autodesk Maya.

      I love the racing ford GTs.

      That one with the Falken livery is money!!!

      I thought it was tragic that Ford didn't put more factory support behind the GT racing program.

      I fully agree

      There's still teams like marc vds and matech overseas. I know some guys in the gt club that have built the matech rep. cars that i get to see at my track events.

      Some quick pulls in Mexico - a monster Corvette gets toyed with by a GTTT



      As badass as the UGR Gallardo's are, I'd take a turbo FGT every day of the week over one.

      I was going to ask if Ford did any factory sponsored racing with the GT.

      Still one of my top 5.
      I will never forget when I was a valet and this guy (a regular) brought his black one in for the first time. Truly an experience to sit in it and appreciate it, then turn the key let your hands stop shaking and push the big red ENGINE START button and listen to that monster come to life. And look up in the rear view mirror to see the supercharger spinning away at idle . And he had his tuned and an exhaust so it sounded monstrous. It also liked to idle at 15mph in first gear which wasn't very conducive to trying to park, but it didn't matter.

      Yeah, that video is intended for the turbo fury sound only

Ugly to behold and hateful to drive, it is not cheap, elegant, comfortable, practical, prestigious, clever, economical, luxurious, well designed, well thought out or, if the rental car I drove in America this year is anything to go by, especially well made either." - Jeremy Clarkson
