Like a Rocket: Experience Launch Control in the Ford GT

Seriously, what’s not to love about the Ford GT? It was developed behind a veil of 007-level secrecy, it looks the business, and it bested everything in its class at Le Mans. We were in love with this baby since the Blue Oval pulled the wraps off at the Detroit Auto Show back in 2015, and since then, it hasn’t lost a bit of its allure.

If we have any complaint about this weapons-grade track slayer, it’s that we don’t have one parked in our garage right now. But hey, those are the breaks. Fortunately, the guys at Drag Times do have one parked it their garage, and they just posted a video showing how to engage launch control.

There’s plenty of fun content here, but if you just want to see the GT go like a scalded cat, you can skip to the 7:28 mark.

Of course, the $500k price tag, along with the famously strict application to buy one means that only a very select few will get the opportunity to own a Ford GT. But the good news is that Ford hasn’t forgotten that the mere mortals among us love performance cars too.
