    The Sept edition arrived today; great feature .Here is conclusion and result-

    Gallardo- "The Lambo is the consumate all-rounder.Supremely exploitable whatever `the road or whatever the weather, the Gallardo possesses the practicality of a 911 Turbo but trumps it for passion and show-stopping presence.What it lacks is sublety and delicacy of feel , the final few degrees of involvement that always serve Porsche so well.There's also a question mark over consistency of build quality;this nearly new car had a worryingly clonky transmission.
    360CS- " the Ferrari is an aggressive extrovert,seducing you with it's raucous, animalistic manner and illicit race-car-on-road character.It has an intesity not even big brother Enzo can match,but it's for this very reason that the CS is a car to enjoy in small doses;warmed-up , wrung-out , then put away.
    Ford GT- "The GT doesn't just look like a supercar from a different era, it feels like one too.After the taut-flat riding Lambo and Ferrari , the Ford feels soft and supple , and this easy going natures pervades the car .It's not awkward to get into,the driving postion is straight forward and roomy, the steering light and wieldy and the gearlever snicks between ratios with a surprising lack of effort.

    VERDICT----------------------------------------------------------------

    That we're comparing a Ford against 2 of the finest supercars in the world is testimony enought to the GT's quality. What you think of the concept is purely personal .FWIW, i initially hated the the idea of Ford rehashing the GT40 , simply because it smacked of a total lack of imagination.
    As we discovered, the GT does have dynamic flaws .Big ones if your favourite roads aren't the smoothest.Flaws yes, but cetainly not fatal ones.Acknowledge the shortcomings and you're still left with a terrifically rewarding , staggeringly fast ,heart- poundingly rewarding beautiful supeercar.Ford's taken on the big boys and beaten them at their own game.
