Wow this sounds and looks great. Though an orignal GT40 is an orignal GT40.

If you're getting similar looks and performance for 30 lakhs, I think it makes the dream a little more realistic for a LOT of people. I see zero harm in that, especially since real GT40 examples for for about 3-5 crores these days...minimum. The GT40 will always remain a classic, and it won't be dethroned, however this replica will be equally joyous for many hopeful REAL GT40 owners to actually, well, own.

Your so right on that ,when driving down the lane who kwns thats not the real thing and the power which this one puts down is more than enough to beat a lot of supercars out there !

I've see one of these cars in Abu Dhabi. Hard to tell if its the rear Mc Coy, but going by who it belongs to might actually be the real thing.

Nice car there. It looks quite similar to something I have seen pretty well.

Of course this was not a replica or whatever you guys call it.

Ah, but thats the Ford GT Heritage Edition. It's about 40 years too advanced on the inside

Snoop, I think if you are convinced its a good buy go for it. Atleast with that money you are not buying the same old conventional Benz / Beamer.

If its reliable go for it.

Sam, is there anything you havn't been in. Someone pops a story about a place or a car and you are there, with a pic saying 'done it' <envy>.

Good for you Maan!

Trust me if i had that money i would buy the GTR around the same figures and it would be more practical to use on road and track .The Ford GT is more of a track car than everyday use .
