The car is a rolling parade, people hanging out of cars on the highway taking pictures with their cell phones. Always a crowd where ever you stop. I also own the 06 Z06 - it will run with this car but will not "hookup" as well as the GT. I also own the 07 GT 500 - fun car too. The supercharger on the GT500 doesn't spool up as fast as the GT but for a $100,000 difference so what do we expect. Still a lot of fun too drive. Both Fords have the shifting over the Corvette ..have shifted into "no mans land" several times with the Z06. Would like to see a shorter shift kit for the GT500.
Super performance, handles like a dream. Great AC and the stereo is killer.
At least one drink holder...bigger sun visor, 5 point harness option. It has zero luggage area. Fed Ex your clothes ahead for a road trip.
Very well designed car. Very capable, extremely fast, and awfully fun to drive. Steering is precise, brakes do not fade, and supercharger has no lag. Ricardo transmission shifts remarkably easily, especially given that you have 550 bhp at your disposal. The GT handles extremely well at the track. Seats are firm and very supportive but lack lumbar support.
Exterior and interior styling (does not look like anything else on the road). Toggle switches! Performance and handling are on par with cars costing >$50K more. Everyone seems to love this car, and the fact that it is a "Ford" makes it more appealing (and unique) to some. Only 4038 were produced.
Luggage space is virtually nonexistent. The McIntosh subwoofer is not very well placed, blocking the view of the supercharger. Doors are very cool but not very practical (must avoid parking too close to other cars). Rear view is poor. A radio with a built-in back-up camera would be an improvement.
A most fantastic all round driving experience. The car performs beyond my admittedly high expectations. It is beautiful and has been very reliable so far. Extremely easy to drive. Very attention getting ride! The optional McIntosh stereo system is beyond belief and is one of the finest factory installed systems ever available.
Great styling, fantastic performance, superb value and easily serviced across the entire country. Very easy to drive and excellent blend of retro and yet modernized design. Fast, Fast, Fast! Well balanced. Best car stereo around.
More luggage space would have been nice. 1.1 cubic feet is insufficient.
The GT surpasses the WOW factor. Pros - Awesome performance, great sound system, perfect instrument panel, comfortable seats, and a real head turner. It's plenty fast and turns on a dime. The lighting system is impressive. Exhaust sound is throaty and strong. Interior is quiet. Cons - Hard to negotiate when backing up (blind spot). No extra room for anything (not the car to take on a trip unless traveling alone). Everyone wants a ride. Happy motoring.
