PostHeaderIcon Raised Ford GT is another kind of Raptor

Supercars are designed and built to accelerate and go around corners quickly on smooth tarmac, but what if you have one with raised suspension, body cladding, and beefy off-road rims and tires? It’d probably look somewhere along the lines of this digitally manipulated previous-generation Ford GT and would even be decent off-road, but nowhere near as good as it originally was on-road.

PostHeaderIcon John Cena’s 2017 Ford GT is Getting Passed Around Like a Dirty Diaper

The Ford GT once owned by WWE superstar John Cena is back up for sale. It’s the fourth time — maybe fifth? — that Cena’s Ford GT is on the market and the second time in the past month alone. The Liquid Blue Ford GT last hit the auction block during Monterey Car Week back on August 25. Barely a month later — seriously, it’s only September 24 — the supercar us now listed in Mecum’s auction next month.

PostHeaderIcon Ford GT Heritage Edition

As if the Ford GT isn’t awesome enough in its own right, Ford is adding to the supercar’s appeal with the launch of a new Heritage Edition showcase, one where the GT gets dressed up in the iconic light blue and orange Gulf Oil livery. The new Heritage Edition model is a fitting follow-up to the red Ford GT Heritage Edition that Ford introduced earlier this month. The Gulf Oil livery isn’t the only unique feature of this new special edition GT; it also comes with a number of exclusive touches, all added to ensure that this special edition model upholds the exclusivity attached to the Gulf Oil livery.

PostHeaderIcon The 10 Most Beautiful Cars Available Today

It’s true that there is subjectivity in beauty, but in the world of automobiles, that’s less likely to manifest itself because the cream always rises to the top. The most beautiful cars today don’t need to let the world know they’re beautiful. They just are. That’s why when we’re discussing which of today’s cars look the best, the same models find their way into the conversation. There will be some debates, sure, but for the most part, those debates typically are about determining if a car looks awesome or super awesome. Compiling a list of the ten most beautiful cars today was difficult because there were too many options to consider. In the end, I got through my list of 10 models that can take my money just by looking at them.

PostHeaderIcon Video: Petrolicious Gets Up Close and Personal With a ’66 Ford GT40

This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans may have come and gone (congrats, Toyota!), but truth be told, we’re still feeling a but wistful for that epic and legendary endurance event. So when we came across this high-quality profile video on a 1966 Ford GT40, courtesy of our friends over at Petrolicious, we just knew we had to feature it.

In typical Petrolicious fashion, the video includes gorgeous shots of the car, both sitting and in motion, with a healthy dollop of informative and entertaining narration laid on top. All good stuff, but the car – man, this thing is a real treat. Not only is it a beautiful thing to behold, looking pretty much perfect from every angle, but the sound of the big block 427 V-8 doing its thing will send electricity up and down your spine.

Owner Ted Baird assembled his GT40 to be as faithful to the original as possible, implementing as many original parts as he could find to create something that was not only visually representative of the machines that took top honors at Le Mans, but mechanically representative as well. It’s not a replica – it’s an official GT40P Mk. II, just not one of the original vehicles.

All told, the car is stunning, and hearing Baird unleash it on the track will get you amped. “This is pure, on-hands, manual, throw-it-around race car.” Baird explains. “But, that’s part of the challenge. If you can race something like this, you should be able to race anything.”

PostHeaderIcon Celebrate The 4th of July With a Special Ride In The 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition

The U.S.A.’s birthday has arrived, and along with all the tasty BBQ and cold beer, it’s looking like we’ll get a full serving of gas-fed American horsepower to boot. The latest comes from Texas-based tuner Hennessey Performance, which recently posted the second episode of its Heroes & Horsepower series, this time featuring a 2018 Ford GT Heritage Edition and a U.S. Army veteran.

PostHeaderIcon Fired by Ford for “inappropriate behavior,” Raj Nair joins company that builds Ford GT

Raj Nair, the former president of Ford North America, who left the firm earlier in 2018 following an internal investigation into “inappropriate behavior,” has joined Canada-based company Multimatic Motorsports. The privately held racing shop has worked with Ford for decades, and it has built the Ford GT supercar since 2015.

PostHeaderIcon Donut Media Recounts The Epic Tale Of The Ford GT

While relatively well-known among the older gear heads out there, the story of the Ford GT might be a bit obscure to the new blood. That said, anyone with a taste for high-performance and four-wheeled racing is sure to delight in the ups and downs of this classic, and Donut Media has all the important bits laid out in the following 11-minute video.

Just to get you primed, here’s the cliff notes introduction. Back in the ‘60s, Ferrari was in a tough spot financially, and floated the idea of selling out to the Ford Motor Company. Everything looked on track for Dearborn to assume control of the Prancing Horse, with Ford spending millions to take stock of Ferrari’s assets and get all the legal stuff in order. However, just as the final negotiations were wrapping up, there was a problem. Enzo Ferrari wasn’t too keen on the idea of Ford controlling the Ferrari race program, and simply walked, leaving the Blue Oval high and dry.

Henry Ford II was not happy. In retribution, he gave a blank check to his team of race engineers and instructed them to build a race car that could take the fight to Ferrari on its own turf – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

What was to follow is one of the most epic tales ever produced by the world of motorsport, finally resulting in the Ford GT we know and love today.

Press play for all the awesome details, running up to the modern iteration of that iconic racer.

PostHeaderIcon Wallpaper of the Day: 2017 Ford GT

The originally Ford GT40 was designed to make a fool out of Enzo Ferrari at Le Mans, but that might as well be a lifetime ago. Then, Ford decided it would step into the supercar market with the second-generation of the model, calling it nothing more than the “Ford GT.” Sexy and sleek, powerful and fast – these words easily describe the GT40. It’s got that low-slung supercar look and, despite hauling around just a 3.5-liter V-6, it can deliver 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. That’s good enough to hit 60 mph in 3.0 seconds, 100 mph in 6.2 seconds, and 130 mph in 10.1 seconds. If you’re brave enough to pin it for 21.4 seconds, you can hit 170 mph too. That’s great, and all, but the GT was a very limited model, and Ford did some serious vetting when it came to who got to own one. We’re guessing you probably weren’t one of those guys so if you’re still itching for some Ford GT, go ahead and download one of our hand-picked wallpapers!

PostHeaderIcon Ford Employees Can Get This Exclusive Color If They Buy A Ford GT

The Ford GT is rare enough on its own, but Ford employees have the opportunity to make it rarer. All they have to do is buy one and avail of the “Victory” paint scheme that’s available exclusively to Ford employees. The specific finish is inspired by the colors worn by the Ford GT LM GTE racers that won their class at Daytona and Le Mans. As you might expect, the GT is teeming in red, white, and blue, looking every bit the part of an all-American supercar.



This particular #fordgt has been delivered to Raj Nair, president of @ford North America. This Ford GT however is unlike any other, thanks to its “Victory” scheme that's only available to those within the company. #ford #forsperformance #lovecars

“The “Victory” paint scheme isn’t for everybody, and it’s certainly not for those who prefer their Ford GT to be a little more muted in its colors”

The “Victory” paint scheme isn’t for everybody, and it’s certainly not for those who prefer their Ford GT to be a little more muted in its colors. If the exclusive paint finish isn’t to your liking, you still have plenty of options to choose from, including eight standard paint colors, eight different racing stripe options, and a number of other contrast finishes. Then there’s the silver Competition Series and the Heritage Edition, the latter of which has its own three exclusive finishes.

There are enough paint finishes to choose from, and we’re not even counting the kind of interior colors you want. It’s the same story with the brake caliper colors and the set of wheels. Options abound when you have a build slot for the Ford GT. There are so many ways to go to dress up the GT, but unless you’re a Ford employee, you’re out of luck as far as the Victory paint scheme is concerned.

“The good news is that we’re probably going to see a few of these babies on the road soon.”

The good news is that we’re probably going to see a few of these babies on the road soon. Raj Nair, president of Ford North America, already has his Victory Ford GT. Bill Ford and Mark Fields already have theirs too. Even Ford CEO Jim Hackett has the option to get one and drive it home, provided he’s interested in being seen driving a Ford GT. Beyond these names, the Blue Oval has a good amount of senior executives who have the resources to secure one.

Depending on how many actually do, I’d wager a bet that we could see somewhere around 15 to 20 units of the Ford GT with the Victory paint scheme. Keep it in that range, and you might be looking at a future collectible.

PostHeaderIcon The Ford-Cena Lawsuit Heats up as Cena Claims There Were No Re-Sale Restrictions

John Cena isn’t ready to cave to Ford’s lawsuit just yet. The 16-time WWE champion is fighting back against the Blue Oval with a lawsuit of his own, claiming that Ford’s suit had the legitimacy of a Vince McMahon championship reign because the final contract he signed said nothing about the automaker’s resale clause that forbid Ford GT owners from selling before 24 months of ownership had passed. What was thought to be an open-and-shut case in the beginning has evolved into a rivalry that has the makings of a main event match at Wrestlemania 33. Who do you have? Cena or Ford?


The Ford-Cena Lawsuit Heats up as Cena Claims There Were No Re-Sale Restrictions - image 749230
“As ridiculous as it sounds, Ford’s requirement that all owners of the Ford GT keep their cars in the first 24 months of their ownership has been well-documented”

I don’t have a prizefighter in this match because it’s hard to see which side is going to win here. Both Ford and Cena have a point in their respective cases. As ridiculous as it sounds, Ford’s requirement that all owners of the Ford GT keep their cars in the first 24 months of their ownership has been well-documented. It wasn’t the most popular of decisions, but the automaker was protecting the supercar from getting flipped in the secondary market looking to make a quick profit out of it. In Ford’s eyes, Cena violated that agreement, prompting Ford to take action against the WWE superstar.

This is where it gets interesting. After first apologizing for selling his GT, Cena is now coming back at Ford with a motion of his own. According to those documents, Ford did not include its 24-month, no-resale stipulation in the final dealer’s sales agreement, making Ford’s claim invalid. Part of Cena’s motion included a tidbit that said that the wrestler and the automaker agreed that any resale restriction would be included in the dealership’s sales agreement. Since there wasn’t one, Cena believes that Ford’s lawsuit has no legs to stand on.


The Ford-Cena Lawsuit Heats up as Cena Claims There Were No Re-Sale Restrictions - image 749234
“Ford did not include its 24-month, no-resale stipulation in the final dealer’s sales agreement, making Ford’s claim invalid.”

From the looks of things, the screw up falls squarely on the shoulders of the Ford dealership — Elder Ford of Tampa — that sold Cena his Ford GT. Ford did its diligence in mentioning the clause in the order confirmation and the affidavit of eligibility and release, documents that Cena himself signed. The clause was also included in the terms and conditions of the Ford GT program. It was all there in the documents, except the last one that might turn out to be the most important one if a judge decides that the final sales agreement precludes the earlier agreements Cena signed with Ford.

Whichever way this legal battle goes, I don’t see either party winning here in the end. Ford will come out as being exceedingly petty, and Cena will look like a car flipper. Either way, this is not the kind of publicity either party is looking for.

PostHeaderIcon John Cena Sells his new Ford GT; Gets Sued by Ford for $500k

Professional wrestler John Cena is in hot water with Ford for breaching the contract to retain his 2017 Ford GT for 24 months after initial delivery. In fact, Ford is suing Cena for $500,000, citing it “has suffered additional damages and losses, including, but not limited to, loss of brand value, ambassador activity, and customer goodwill due to the improper sale.”

It might seem odd that selling a vehicle could somehow hurt an automaker, but there’s more to it. See, Ford hand-picked applicants to purchase the GT. Part of the selection process included evaluating the potential buyer’s interest in cars, ownership of other high-end vehicles, and their social reach. Basically, Ford chose buyers who would “organically” promote the GT and the Ford brand – sort of like contracting your customers to be a built-in marketing team. Ford certainly chose heavy hitters, too, including automotive legends Jay Leno and Jack Roush.

Cena didn’t even come close to the 24-month agreement. Rather, the wrestler took delivery shortly after September 23, 2017, and Ford learned of Cena’s third-party sell around October 20, 2017.
When a Ford GT representative reached out to Cena, he said he sold the car and other property to cover expenses. Ford’s lawsuit claims Cena “unfairly made a large profit from the unauthorized resale flip” and seeks $500,000 in damages.

It’s unknown exactly how much profit Cena made or to whom he sold the car. We’ll keep you updated on any developments with this bizarre situation. In the meantime, check out all the details of the 2017 Ford GT or read Ford’s full lawsuit here.

PostHeaderIcon Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups

BMW i8 Dodge Charger

Halloween may have come and gone, but it’s never too late to explore the weird, the bizarre, and the downright frightening things that go bump in the night. If you’ve got the nerve, then we challenge you to look through these utterly profane vehicle renderings, courtesy of the good folks from Click Mechanic. Truth be told, no one is safe from the following strange creations – hybrids, muscle cars, imports, supercars, trucks, and even tractors get tossed into the blender with these seven unholy car mashups.

Call it madness, call it lunacy, call it outlandish… truth be told, we simply can’t look away! Hell, we’d actually argue that some of these creations are a bit, well, awesome (no, seriously). Either way, this is what happens when you give rendering artists free reign to mix and match from across the automotive spectrum. Naturally, we wanna know – which is these shocking mashups stands out the most to you? Let us know in the comments!

BMW i8 and Dodge Charger


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743946

Kicking things off, we got two wildly different takes on what it means to be fast. On one side, we’ve got the hybrid-powered BMW i8, a cutting-edge, CFRP-laden spaceship, while on the other side, we’ve got the old school muscle legend that is the Dodge Charger. I guess this is what happens when you put them together, complete with laser headlights and topped by a massive blower. It’s like a sustainable flamethrower, or an eco-conscious chainsaw. Wait, what?!

Bugatti Chiron and Volkswagen Beetle


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743947

Originally created as a vehicle for the people, the VW bug was about simplicity and low cost, offered as a modest approach to moving from A to B. Then we have the 1,500-horsepower, ultra-complex, quad-turbo Bugatti Chiron, a rolling statement of wealth and prestige that screams for attention. Talk about opposites, and yet, the pieces seem to fit together quite nicely here…

Pagani Huayra and First-Generation Chevrolet Camaro


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743948

Now this one is just flat out weird. We never, in a million billion years, would have thought about infusing the gorgeous top-shelf Italian styling of the Pagani Huayra with the good-old-boy chic of the original Chevy Camaro. This thing is an abomination, no doubt about it, and yet, we can’t look away. The flat black paint, the chrome trim, the mid-engine proportions, the polished hubcaps… would you call us crazy if we admitted to thinking this thing actually, kinda… works?! Yes, you would? Fair enough.

Nissan GT-R And Nissan Juke


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743949

If you ask us, this is the kind of machine that would manage to simultaneously make your little niece squeal with delight over its cuteness, then go off and rip your dedicated sports car to shreds on the track. The body shape says Juke, while that front end and rear wing are pure GT-R. Maybe we shouldn’t give Nissan any ideas – after all, the 485-horse Juke-R is already a thing, so we know this mashup isn’t a total impossibility.

Ford GT and Ford Raptor


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743950

We know the Blue Oval has a variety of vehicles at its disposal when it comes to going fast. Wanna smash the local lap record? Climb aboard the Ford GT, a carbon fiber supercar made for domination at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. What about flying over rough terrain? In that case, saddle up in the Ford Raptor, an off-road specialist ready to conquer the rough stuff and all of Mother Nature. But what if you wanna do both?

Lamborghini Aventador and Lamborghini Tractor


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743951

Believe it or not, Lambo was originally a manufacturer of farm equipment before it branched off into making high-dollar exotics. In fact, the Italian marque is still making tractors today as Lamborghini Trattori. So then, the above is what you get when you do a little inter-company cross-pollination. All we see is the perfect conveyance for ripping mean four-wheel drifts across freshly plowed fields.

Ferrari LaFerrari and Fiat Multipla


Click Mechanic Renders 7 Utterly Bizarre Car Mashups - image 743952

Take the jaw-dropping body of the Ferrari squared, then plop a dollop of Fiat MPV in the middle, and this is the result. Yikes. At least it’s one of the more, eh, practical Prancing Horses we’ve seen. Right? Maybe?!

PostHeaderIcon The Ford GT Just Tackled One of The World’s Greatest Driving Roads

When I wrote about some of the world’s most memorable driving roads a few months ago, I was immediately drawn to the Atlantic Ocean Road. It may not be as thrilling as the Stelvio Pass in Italy and the Transfăgărășan in Romania. It’s not even as dangerous as the North Yungas Road in Bolivia. But for my money, the Atlantic Ocean Roads is the most scenic piece of road in the world. It certainly looked like one in Ford’s new episode of its on-going web series Europe’s Greatest Driving Roads..

The episode in question stars the Ford GT driving along the breathtaking 5.2-mile road that runs through an archipelago in Eide and Averøy in Møre og Romsdal, Norway. Locals refer to it simply as “64,” a reference to it located along a section of the country’s County Road 64. Veteran Le Mans racer and current Ford Chip Ganassi Racing driver Stefan Mücke is behind the wheel of the Ford GT as he drives along the road, all while narrating its history and unique make-up. See, the Atlantic Ocean Road is unlike most scenic highways in that it traverses an archipelago of small islands via bridges, causeways, and viaducts while the Atlantic Ocean sits calmly below. The scenery is nothing short of spectacular and being behind the wheel of the Ford GT makes the whole episode all the more memorable. Then again, the drive along the Atlantic Ocean Road isn’t the only reason why the Ford GT traveled so far up north. It also set its sights on breaking the lap record in one of the most unique race tracks in the world, the Arctic Circle Raceway.

Don’t sleep on the Ford GT’s own record-breaking performance

It doesn’t quite hold the prestige of Le Mans or the worldwide acclaim of the Nurburgring, but the Arctic Circle Raceway is famous in its own right for being the northernmost race track in the world. It’s located just 20 miles south of the Arctic Circle, which means that it’s the only racetrack in the world that can host a full 24-hour race without the sun ever leaving. Thank the midnight sun in the summer season for that. I can keep talking about the Arctic Circle Raceway for hours, but I won’t do that. Instead, I’ll talk about why the racetrack made news recently, and it has everything to do with the Ford GT.

“Ford’s new supercar recently went to the Arctic Circle Raceway – it passed through the Atlantic Ocean Road to get there – and laid waste to the track’s lap time record”

See, Ford’s new supercar recently went to the Arctic Circle Raceway – it passed through the Atlantic Ocean Road to get there – and laid waste to the track’s lap time record. Veteran Le Mans racer and current Ford Chip Ganassi Racing driver Stefan Mücke took the wheel of the GT and after getting familiar with the track by running a few introductory laps around it, Mücke clocked in a time of 1:36.29 seconds, destroying the old 1:41.0 record held by the first-generation Audi R8 4.2 FSI Quattro and its driver, Norwegian rallycross racer Tommy Rustad. Incidentally, Rustad actually owns pretty much all of the fastest lap times around the Arctic Circle Raceway. Home track, perhaps?

It must be noted though that despite getting the production car lap record at the race track, Mücke and the Ford GT still fell short of Lars Magnussen’s time attack record of 1:29.8, which he set with the Mitsubishi Evo back in 2014.

In any case, the Ford GT’s new production car lap record is still a nice bow on the Blue Oval’s breathtaking trip to Norway. If you haven’t been up to date on Ford’s Europe’s Greatest Driving Roads series, here are the past episodes for your viewing pleasure.

PostHeaderIcon The Fastest Car In The World Is A Ford?!

The title for “fastest car in the world” is a pretty hotly contested one. Officially, the old Bugatti Veyron Super Sport holds the record at 268 mph. The new Bugatti Chiron is estimated to reach speeds of nearly 280, but it hasn’t been officially tested yet. And then we have the Hennessey Venom GT which hit 210, technically beating the Veyron, but there are several factors that disqualify it from meeting Guinness Records requirements.

PostHeaderIcon Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition

It’s hard enough to get your hands on a Ford GT. The ultra exclusive model is sold out over the next four years, which just so happens to be the full life cycle of the supercar. All told, Ford only plans to build 1,000 examples of the GT, amounting to just 250 units per year. So yeah, getting a Ford GT this late in the game is next to impossible. Imagine what those odds will be then now that Ford has released a special livery for 2018 models of the Ford GT. Yup. I don’t like your chances any more than I like mine.

Ford’s new treat for future GT owners is called the ’67 Heritage Edition. If the name itself sounds familiar, that’s because Ford has already released something similar last year. Remember the ’66 Heritage Edition? It’s almost the same as the ’67 version in terms of where they’re inspired from, but in the end, they’re actually two different interpretations in part because the new version pays tribute to the 1967 Le Mans-winning Shelby-American Inc. team that featured racers AJ Foyt and Dan Gurney. Considering that Ford’s success in Le Mans with the original GT40 spanned four years, we could be in store for two more Heritage Editions in 2018 and 2019. For now, though, the spotlight is focused on the ’67 Heritage Edition and the way its treatment is inspired directly from the GT40s that took the checkered flag during the 1967 Le Mans season.

2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage Edition

The new Ford GT supercar is getting a lot of limited edition versions, and they all have something to do with Le Mans. The latest is this, the 2018 Ford GT ’67 Heritage, and it pays homage to the 1967 Le Mans-winning GT40 Mark IV race car driven by Dan Gurney and A.J. Foyt.

Ford GT ’67 Heritage does that by mimicking the look of the legendary race car, featuring a gloss-finish Race Red exterior with white stripes and exposed carbon package. The car sports Frozen White No. 1 hood and door graphics, and 20-inch one-piece forged aluminum wheels in silver satin clearcoat with black wheel nuts. Red callipers and silver rearview mirror caps complete the look. It’s a very special look, but we have to say it does rob the GT of some of its modern flair. But maybe the retro look is the whole point of this paint work.

You will the same theme inside the cabin where Ford GT ’67 Heritage edition boasts new leather trimming for the carbon fibre seats, with red accent stitching, which carries over to the steering wheel, seat belt webbing in red, paddle shifters in anodised grey, and satin dark stainless appliqués the instrument panel, door register bezels and x-brace. Being a limited edition, the car also comes with a unique serialised identification plate, plus exposed matte carbon fibre door sills, air register pods and centre console.

PostHeaderIcon Watch Jay Leno Review His Personal 2017 Ford GT: Video

Ford reintroduced the GT nameplate in 2015 at the Detroit Auto Show, ushering in a second-generation for the Blue Oval’s streetable supercar. The GT is a nod to the GT40, the racer that brought the fight to Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the mid-‘60s, and the modern iteration arrives packed to the brim with the very latest in domestic go-fast technology. It’s a low-weight, high-strung, monster of a super car, making it the perfect addition for Jay Leno’s garage.

In this extended 36-minute, 51-second review, Jay starts by detailing the process he went through in securing, customizing, and receiving delivery of his car, followed by a comparison to another legendary sports car. “This reminds me a lot of my McLaren F1 because the McLaren F1was a road car that you could have driven to Le Mans, won the race, and driven back, and this is pretty much the same thing.” After a walk around in the garage, including a look at the aero, the cabin, and the engine, Jay takes the Ford out into public for a little street driving, both on the highway, surface streets, and twisty mountain lanes. While lengthy, the video is still worth a watch to get an in-depth look at Ford’s top dog.
