After some reflecting and the initial reservation about it not having a red blooded V8, I've come around. I'm actually glad it has a sixer. Not because it allows the GT to make race spec and give chase to the Italians. I'm happy it has a six because the tech they develop for the GT is now much more likely to make it into the regular lineup. If they produced some whack-a-do fancy V8 it would never see the light of day outside of this car. I'm hoping for a very turbo friendly Ford future...

A classic GT for your troubles.
