This world needs another mid-engined sports car.

The new Ford GT mid-engined sports car, the people at Ferrari must have felt a bit surprised: American muscle is not just knocking on the door, it’s coming in.

The new model looks specifically designed to stomp its US Size 15’s all over those Italians calf-leather 458 driving moccasins.

Unlike the late, great Ford GT of 2005, this iteration isn’t just a fast and beautiful homage to Ford’s late-sixties racer—it’s a hyper-advanced carbon-fiber sports car that uses every top automotive technology out there.

Like Ferrari, the GT has a carbon-fiber passenger tub and body panels.

Expensive aluminum front and rear sub frames provide light and strong links to the road, while an aerodynamic, multi-faceted coupe body shell keeps this featherweight fighter pressed to the tarmac and looking like the supremely retro-futuristic Le Mans racer it is.

The twin rear lamps, straight exhaust and dubs are pure American braggadocio and crucially functional—crotch grabs with a purpose.

The last generation car throbbed with power from a truck-derived 5.4-liter supercharged V8, it also sucked fuel like a funny car.

This generation uses an advanced twin-turbo Ecoboost V6 to achieve over 600 horsepower and class-leading economy.

A seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission makes clear that precision has become like power an American value.

A pared-down greenhouse makes for an incredibly low profile, and dihedral, Lamborghini-style doors make the Ford GT look as exotic as anything built in Italy.

In a twist, the seat is fixed, while the adjustable pedals and wheels come forward to meet the driver.
