A Ford GT Can Absolutely Get Sideways
October 17th, 2017
You have race cars, street cars, drift cars, rally cars...you name it there's a market for it. But who's to say it has to belong in only one category? Just because the first thing you think of when someone says "Ford GT" isn't drifting doesn't mean it can't happen. That's the beauty of the automotive industry - you can make just about anything happen with enough power, imagination, skill, and yeah money doesn't hurt. And Top Gear's Chris Harris proves that when he takes a Ford GT to Scotland and gets behind the wheel. And since the vehicle is essentially a racecar, this is an impressive video and mad driving skills to boot.
You would think that the GT, even in Track Mode with a deployed rear wing and one of the twin springs at each wheel locked off for extra stiffness, would be a clean and straight ride. but Harris says that's not the case. In fact, he says there's minimal resistance to oversteer with the 647bhp, 216mph, carbon-tubbed Ford GT. Are you impressed? Or do you think the GT should stick to what it does best on the track? Let us know in the comments what your thoughts are.
