American comedian Tim Allen has made a short video showing off his Ford GT. I don’t usually promote these kinds of things but this movie shows some angles of the car that you just don’t see unless you get up close. Plus, it is worth watching just to hear more of that twin-turbo engine.

The video is here:


Those who know Tim Allen are used to his often understated style. Those not familiar with him may consider him slightly underwhelmed with his new car. Take it from someone who has seen him a lot on screen, he is very happy on the inside!

It was inevitable that the first batch of Ford GTs would be sold to celebrities and those best able to generate more publicity for the brand. This video does just that although Tim does balance it by showcasing the limitations as well as the benefits of the car. The video is only four minutes long but shows us a lot in that time. It is well worth a watch.

2018 Ford GT
The 2018 Ford GT doesn’t need much of an introduction. The reinvention of a classic made modern with a futuristic twist. It looks like the original and even sounds a bit like it even though there are two fewer cylinders than the original. With only 250 of them being made per year, they are going to be rarely seen on the road.

The styling mixes the old with the new in a fantastic way. Viewed from any angle, it could only ever be a GT. While some exotics are content to be evolutions of a theme, the GT is a reinvention with a healthy nod to heritage.

With carbon fibre construction, adjustable suspension, active aerodynamics and lots of performance features, this isn’t an everyday commuter. This is for track days or for enjoying sunny weekends exploring the highways of Canada.

The 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine sounds awesome. It delivers 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels via a seven speed transmission and tops out at 216 mph (347 km/h).

The Ford GT isn’t just a car, it is a piece of automotive theatre. It is an experience that delights every aspect of a car driver’s psyche. The sight, smell, feel and sound are all delivered in high definition and have delighted almost every new owner so far. It’s just a shame they are so rare!
