2006 Ford GT User Reviews
- Insane performance, even better handling than Z06, supercharged 302
- Where was THIS car in 24 hours of LeMans?
You're not looking at a car. You're looking at a rocket on wheels that sticks to the road like super glue.
The drive is simply superior, with the best roadholding power of ANY domestic car, PERIOD. It also outperforms such monsters as SL65AMG, Carerra GT3, and even the mighty Gallardo.
Is this worth being hit for a sixth of a million dollars? Not really.
You'll get the same experience from a Z06 or a Viper, both of which ALSO sport 500+ horsepower figures and sub-four-second times to 60. In the case of the Z06, the $80k in price difference would be much more than plenty of money to eliminate torque-steer and improve roadholding to a point equal or superior to that of the GT.
Not a fan of modified cars? Get a bone-stock Ferrari Superamerica. It handles even better and has more classy looks for an extra pittance, not to mention that it's naturally aspirated and has a convertible trim available. The GT would make for a goofy-looking convertible indeed.
Don't get me wrong. This is a GREAT car. It just doesn't justify its not-so-great price tag....read morehide

- Its more affordable than a Enzo,Its sleek
- Its a ford trying to be ferrari
Dont get me wrong its a very nice car...but the only reason it was made was because ferrari would not sell to ford..This is a nice car dont get me wrong i seen one and drove it..but its nothing like a ferrari or a Lambo..The comment above mine ..I have a 1969 corvette yenko tuned even it still wouldnt touch this car but my vette eats z06s alive.
all in all i like this car alot its very sleek in styling and the price its cheaper and faster than SOME ferrari's but its still a very nice fast machine....read morehide

Just had to write this in response to the Z06 and (haha) Camaro comparisons. To the author:
1. Don't think you own one
2. If you did own one then you shouldn't have
3. Now go play with your chevette because you are obviously a chevy fan trying to make yourself feel better.
If you ever had the opportunity to put these (I have) on a track (GT and Z06) you would clearly understand why these cars are in two different leagues. I love the Z06 but it can not do anything near the GT. The rear end is light and just can't hadle the turns like the GT. The GT feels like it is truly on rails. And above that it is very controlable. The Vette just does not compare. You have to remember this car is built with ALL aspects in mind, Power, Feel, Cornering, it's all there. I can say without sounding ridiculous that this is one of the finest cars ever made from the standpoint of performance.
Comparing a Camaro, now that is just a bit ridiculous. Compare that to the Mustang Shelby Cobra coming out later next year....read morehide

- This car feels like a concourse racer designed especially for the enthusiast
- I paid nearly 78k over sticker to get mine, right in the Detroit area out of 1,200
Really a very excellent car to own, but if I was to make the decision, I would have rather had a Chevy Corvette Z06 Mass Production Model in Silver or Metallic Blue for a third of the price.
Money can buy status, but brains speaks volumes for the Vette.
And just wait until you see the new Camaro for even less coinage...
