    A fantastic car, complete with speed, handling andn looks unparalleled. I, however, like the looks of classic GM's more. More aggressive looking, but still, GT40 is awesome!<!-- Signature -->

  11. Re: Best looking car ever.

    then do you guys think you should appreciate replica cars? or do you think they're just cheap and fake kit cars?
    i personally can appreciate it when you build a replica of a really rare and special car (gt40, jaguar D-type,...), and when they are built to the exact specification.

    but i hate when people try to copy cars like ferrari 355 or diablo using a VW floorpan and a v6 engine! it drives me mad!!

    I hope SC.NET would put those other pics back to mk4 mk3 and mk2 gt40's information so they could look good also like this does. MAYBE THEY HAVE DELETED THEM TO GET PEOPLE TO PAY FOR THEM? and they put some finnish commercials all over this place and no one understands them anyway:D also no one clicks them=no money for sc=fair for them haha maybe some moderators dont like what i talk but i'm getting sick of all the commercials that are in somewhere for nothing and trying to put all pay for the pics by deleting them...come on sc i get a pop-up every time i go to a cars link and it slows down the browsing and if this site would be without pop-ups more people would be pleased and maybe get more premium accounts. anyone agrees with me?
     
  13. Re: Best looking car ever.

    I prefer the 67 Corvette.
     
  14. Re: Best looking car ever.

    Be careful what you say. You might be joking around but there are people that don't mess around the first time you meet them. I'm not like that. It was manufactered in england, not designed.

    The original 1964 Ford GT, which was before the GT40 came out, was made mostly in England and also in Dearborn, Michigan. It was thought up from Henry Ford II because he originally wanted to buy Ferrari and they declined. So he thought "if you can't buy them, beat them". He just wanted to have a name in racing. It was also founded with US money. Just because it was made mostly in england doesn't give it credit for being a car from england. You can argue all you want, but almost 40 years is backing my statement that this is American.

    I personally think the '64 Ford GT, looks pretty stupid, but thats comparing it with the GT40 and that was also before reading that it was built in england.

    No where near bieng the best looking car ever!
     
  16. Re: Best looking car ever.

    then what IS the best looking car ever? this is certainly in my top 5. plus, this car could probably take on the modena without much trouble. 0-100 in 8 seconds...thats fast. plus, some automotive history for ya, chassis #1075 (a Mk1 Gulf) won the most races of all the GT40s, i think about 7. Check the ford GT site for the actual historical numbers.

  18. Re: Best looking car ever.

    If only I could own one of these....
     
  19. Re: Best looking car ever.

    Yea i agree with you. It is the best looking car around and now they are making the new Ford GT's which they did a good job of because they look very similar to the GT40 MK1 Gulf.
     
  20. Re: Best looking car ever.

    The new GT actually looks ALOT like the GT40 Mk I Production. I think its the very last car on the Ford Forum list. It looks practically the same.
     
  21. Re: Best looking car ever.

    They also look a lot like just the Mk1's.
     
  22. Re: Best looking car ever.

    Well yeah cuz the MK I and MK I production were nearly identical.
     
  23. Re: Best looking car ever.

    Yea i forget which one but one has almost the same colors or the same tint of colors as the new ones do.
     
  24. Re: Best looking car ever.

    The Mk II's black paintjob w/white racing stripes looks alot like the Ford GT's blue paintjob w/white racing stipes.
     
  25. Re: Best looking car ever.

    There is also a red car that look a whole lot like the new Ford GTs.
