    uh oh.

    No idea of the story/location, etc. Just came across the picture.

    But oddly enough, with just the front end damaged as it is, and Ford built, even when it is just a limited reproduction, I doubt the costs would be that much to repair. % wise, in comparison to a similar accident with a 360, it wouldn't even come close IMO.

    Don’t forget all those fiberglass bumpers from the Kit car market floating around. I’d estimate the damage at ooohhh…about $450.00 + paint.. :)

    Damn that car is hot. Even busted up it looks great. I always love the "wild" pics of sportscars. The set up photo shoots don't ever look good.
     

  6. Agree'd cars on setup pictures never look right. The GT is ok looking nothing special it looks pretty decent in that pic tho.

    Saw that pic a few weeks ago on SVTperformance. Crying shame. Ahh well, its like the handful of Enzo's I'v seen in that shape, person who can afford it can probably handle the repair costs. (if the car hasnt already been covered under insurence)

    Anyway, as far as the appearence of the Ford GT is concerned, breath taking car in person. Deffinatly a breath of fresh air from any Ferrari (accept for the Enzo) or Lambo designs out there at the current.

    I think it was in Road and Track a month or so ago. The photographer had come across hte vehicle after it's driver had slid off a slick Michigan road and beat feet; the guy who took the pic happens to work for GM

    I saw it at two different car shows, and I thought it was awesome looking! Granted, that's a purely personal thing... but seeing it there I was stunned.
