Stunning Ford GT named in best new cars of 2017
Put through its paces by leading motoring publication Auto Express and named in the ‘Road tests of the year’ winners, the stunning Ford GT has had an impressive year. The 216mph supercar and its 638bhp twin-turbo V6 offered more than its sport looks.
Reviewed by leading motoring journalist Steve Sutcliffe, the Ford GT was highly impressive. Designed to win leading races with remarkable on track performances, the limitations of driving on the public roads were only found to add to its appeal.

In awarding the Ford GT the maximum 5 star rating, Auto Express commented “The brand new Ford GT is sensational to drive on a circuit, boasting as much drama and speed as you’ll ever encounter from a car that’s licensed for use on the road. Designed in secret from a pure-bred Le Mans racer, it’s composed, brutal and exciting – but it’s not as refined as it could (or should) be on the road. Despite such reservations, though, you can’t help but fall in love with the latest GT. Its looks and engine are more than enough to win you over – even if ultimately it’s little more than a road-legal Le Mans car at heart”.
