The Best Value Among Exotics
By Ethan on


2006 Ford GT 2dr Coupe (5.4L 8cyl S/C 6M)


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.

Favorite Features

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.

Suggested Improvements

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.

Your review tagline is "Best Value Among Exotics", yet "value" is the only category you rate less than 5 out of five. Your praise and criticisms were all echoes of what was said in the Edmunds review. It sounds like this is a car that you can't afford to buy, but are trying hard to convince everyone that you own. It makes for an off-putting (if not down right misleading) read.
