Ford GT40 CHALLENGE | Top Gear - Part 1

5 711 633 Näkymät

Part 1 of 2: Jeremy falls in love with the Ford GT, despite the fact he can barely fit in it. It's an improvement on the GT40 though, which he couldn't get in at all! The extra three inches makes all the difference.

  • 66 GT40: got it's 289/427 engine from the mustang. 05 GT: got it's 6.4 from an f150 lighting 16 GT: got it's 3.6 from your mom's ford torus. Somehow ford managed to put a less and less cooler engine in the Ford Gt every single generation. Hell, it couldn't even get it's own engine to begin with!

  • If Jeremy Clarkson sells a car that is the time to buy it. Sold his Ford GT right before they doubled in value. He has done that time and time again I need to keep an eye on him.

  • 351 lightening motors are underrated. Found out someone swapped the Windsor out of my 1990 f150 standard cab 4x4 for a lightening motor when the rear plugs on both banks quit firing and I had to do plugs/wires/distributor cap swap. Even on 6 cylinders it ran like a stuck pig. Only Ford ill ever own again besides an improved 6.0 powerstroke...can't beat a 6.0 turbo sound with a 6.4 or 6.7. Like an air liner taking off.

    Ben JaenkeBen Jaenke10 kuukautta sitten
    • All rack and pinion steering mechanisms are pretty much the same (it's fundamentally just a gear rack meshed with a pinion gear; extremely simple mechanism). The difference in steering feel between a Ford GT and a Focus or any other modern economy car comes from the tires, suspension, chassis stiffness, center of gravity location, and weight distribution.

  • Same as a Lightning?? Negative. Lightning was a cast iron block, 2 valve, roots blown, wet sump engine based on the 2 valve Triton motors in the F 150’s. The GT, while it seems Triton based, was an aluminum block, 4 valve, Lysholm twin screw blown, dry sump motor.This motor soon became the basis for the GT500 Condor motors between 2007-2012, those not being dry sump and twin screwed but roots blown and wet sump with a cast iron block until 2011, at which time it got an aluminum block.

  • The reason why Jeremy was praising so much was because he was kissing Ford's arse to be one of the few 28 people in the UK to get a new GT. Once he got the car, he wrote a scathing review telling what an unreliable gas guzzling POS the car was and that his wife at the time hated it.

  • Well, if a Brit is impressed, and even snubbing the "blue bloods," it might be worth the time to check the Ford GT out. But, is it still called a "GT-40?" Or is it now a "GT-44?"
