Ford: Do it to me one more time!

The Ford GT40 is my all-time favorite car, period, hands down. Although, quite literally impossible for me to afford, I was sad to see the production stop a few years ago. However, my entrepreneurial juices are flowing once again , now that this little lady has been announced.

Ford is just awesome.

New Ford GT front

Ford's new supercar features V8 hybrid drivetrain and will take on McLaren and Ferrari - but cost less than both.

It’s take three for the Ford GT! Auto Express has learned that the blue oval is readying an all-new mid-engined supercar – and it’s set to feature hybrid power. 
Keeping the weight to a minimum is an all-aluminium chassis and composite body panels. Expect the GT to tip the scales at around 1,400kg, which is nearly 200kg lighter than the car it replaces. That means a power to weight ratio in the region of 430bhp per tonne, while a three-second 0-62mph time and a top speed in excess of 200mph are targets. And while it won’t be cheap, the car is sure to undercut its rivals.
