Superior to my Ferrari in Every Catagory
By David on
2005 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)
I purchased a slightly damaged GT with 1400 actual miles, and had Saleen redo the damaged front end with perfection with replacement parts on the paint line prior to closing. It is fast, reliable, and solid compared to all my other sports cars including BMW 8 Series and Ferrari TR512. Neck snaps back with the push of the pedal and you pray not to see the rear end in the windshield. Almost spun out of control several times...seems there are many wrecks in the first 1500 miles...right when the drivers feels comfortable in the car and pushes the envelope. The car starts more conversations and is the source for many to take photos while driving by. Draws crowds wherever parked. Love It!
Power is without equal. Always starts and runs smoothly. Very distinctive styling...most think it must be European. Easy to get local service and parts and Ford Dealers treat you like a Rock Star with this car. Finally an exotic car that anyone can drive and take care of. Ideal daily driver.
The door clearance is a real issue...everyone hits their heads getting out despite many warnings. Almost got a hair cut pulling door closed. Sound system has great sound, but hard to reach controls and only 1 CD...not even enough storage or glove box to hold other CD's...so they sit on the floor.
