2006 Ford GT Heritage
2006 GT #366 Midnight Blue with Satin Silver Stripes.
Race mode is only funny until you use it. The 458 is amazing the way it actually toggles from "DD" to "balls to the wall". I don't know how it will age, but I know it's definitely one of the best cars ever built period. I'm not a major Ferrari guy either.
Otherwise, you are definitely right. Today, PeakCompletions Claus sent up his 2011 LP570-4 Performante. Another majorly awesome car. Fast, great exhaust note, drenched in amazing carbon fiber and alcantara, and grip for days. I drove it about 80 miles and then had to do some GT driving. The GT is just home. That cockpit, the steering feel, the sound of the engine...it doesn't age. The only thing it's missing compared to the newer cars is pure speed, and that's easily remedied. The things the GT does well will never age. I've still never been in another car that works as a whole the way the GT does. It's like the car becomes an extension of you when you use the pedals or click the shifter. Doesn't hurt that it's still the most beautiful car on the road. You really need to always make sure you've got another GT in front of you so you can admire the 3/4 rear angle. No matter how good it looks sitting still, nothing compares to the way it looks hurtling down the road.

First it's pretty tires. Next it's pretty guns. Then the next thing you know, you're shaving your beard and wearing capri pants.
The A/C on the GT is amazing
I remember many 95+ days where I get out of car and the metal on my watch case is frosted up from side vent cooling my wrist...even with 220 on temp gauge...
No other super car can cool like that...maybe Gallardo...
Before I bought the GT, someone here told me the A/C was colder than his ex-wifes heart & you could hang meat in there...
Never forgot that; closed the deal for me. I am an A/C psycho, & hate to get out of a car soaked.
On my vette, the tunnel glove box keeps my burritos piping hot
458s are very sexy but the price of parts is staggering
I heard a new transmission is NINETY THOUSAND DOLLARS !!!!!!
I cant wait to pull up next to a Californication in my F40 and laugh at them
