    I like it, even the rear portion has grew on me.

    Hopefully this thing can put up a good fight at Le Mans!

    Weight and aero, most likely.

    They saw the Ferrari F12 and said," We can cut more out of our car than that!"

    It might be a timed exclusive (judging by the "First in Forza" bit on the official site, sort of like the Huayra's short deal with EA), but as far as I know, T10 isn't pro-exclusives.

    The rear is shaped for aero rather than styling. It allows for more pressure recovery and less rear area at wake pressure. The comparison to Ferrari is good (though it's more the LaFerrari) except this has the advantage of being open, meaning less area with skin friction drag.

    I'm not 100% sure about the exhaust placement, but other than that, wow, stunning. I love how this looks.

    I'm excited to see and read about how it goes.

    Excellent! And Ecoboost too.. I approve, I indeed do. Now, let's see how soon this one breaks speed records.

    Took all the thunder from the NSX today. This is amazing. 600 + Hp from a Twin-Turbo EcoBoost V6? can I donate a kid for this?

    I disagree. I think the headlights and the corner crease below them is ever-so slightly reminiscent of the Aventador.

    The more i look at it, the more i like this car (would still probably choose the NSX, over it though). Certain elements of it, remind me of some concept sketches that i did back in Feb-Jan of last year, in one of the VGT threads.

    (Please excuse quality of unfinished sketches) :

    I really like it in the Gulf colours, thought i'd have ago of it in Photoshop. A bit similar to @Eunos_Cosmo rendition, as it definitely needs more orange (imo).

    Since the P1 and LaFerrari were timed exclusive, this will probably be too.

    It reminds me of the MK IV and I think that was done on purpose to be honest.

    Take equal parts Avendator, Miura, Ford GT 06' and LaFerrari, and voila - new Ford GT!

    I like it!

    If it had smaller/shorter dimensions, it would make an awesome modern Stratos. :D

    I saw the pics at work today, but I wasn't impressed. It looks much cooler in the videos though. I like it.

    Like a Lamborghini...
    ...kit car.

    The back has too much going on in my opinion. The previous Ford GTs were soooo sleek and smooth. :cool: No fancy schmancy aerodynamics nonsense like what the LalalaFerrari did. The front looks okay, could be simpler but the back is an absolute disaster. :yuck:

    Being that the Ford GT is my favorite car I do hope it comes to GT, I've often wondered if this car would be Ford's contribution to the Vision GT category.
