And there you go.
All the potential buyers will get a 360 or a Turbo because paying ridiculous dealer markups on a Ford is just not worth it.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

dealers will probably make the gt really expensive in europe just because of the demand. just like here in america with the enzo, they are selling for 1.4 million from dealers now. i think that is stupid.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

I agree that many potential buyers of the GT won't be able to one and settle for something else, I don't know what Ford's rate of production of GT's is, but why not make more?

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

the same reason ferrari didnt make a lot of enzos and f-50s, esclusiveness. how would u like it if you saw an enzo in every city, okay, bad thought. but, yeah.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

I guess exclusiveness does make a difference, but I'd still like to see a Enzo or Murcielago or GT in every city though.

From what I've heard Ford is to make approx. 1,000 GT's a year. Which isn't bad considering they haven't established theirselves as a prominent supercar name for years. Why build a bunch when you have no feed back as to how well they sell? If you ask me its a good step to begin with.

Actually what I was thinking is that all potential buyers will not be able to buy one because their already accounted for. Of coarse if you can afford a 150k car, then why hesitate on a dealer markup that they already know is going to be tacked on anyways? A dealer markup is more than likely the last thing thats going to stop any potential buyers. Supply will be the first, and markups IMO the last.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

I'm sure I could buy a GT if I were to pay 200k for it. And I'm sure there are people out there willing to do so.

What I'm saying is that the GT is not a direct competitor to either the Gallardo, the 360 or the Turbo over here.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

That may be the case in some places, but I think with a good reputation the GT will eventually become a direct competitor in europe.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

imo, the thing that will hold the gt back is ford. i think that ford is too busy building other cars that they cant put all their time into building supercars. if you look at supercar companies, ferrari, lamborghini, mclaren, they all can spend the whole time on one car. thats what i think will hold the gt back.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

that will definately contribute to the overall quality of the car, but production won't be a problem.

I dont think Ford wanted it to be. In a way, yes, they want to show they can compete on the top stage. But the GT, imo, is really only there to revive Ford's dull image, which will certainly happen when very rich people (willing to pay 200k) are fighting over which one gets to buy a Ford.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

the GT could also help Ford's overall sale of the rest of the Ford line.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

imo, ford is still a ford. so thats one reason i dont like the gt (not trying to start a flame war, so dont start one, im just saying my opinion). plus, can ford make their own car, the had to bring back the gt40 (wich really isnt even a ford, its a british body with a ford engine), and now they are trying to bring back the shelby, c'mon now, make your own from the ground up fast cars.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo vs. Ford GT

the gallardo was built with such attention to detail, the GT was by comparison thrown together. Because of that and styling, I'd go with the gallardo.
