Tim Allen Introduces His Ford GT To The World

Some may remember him from the ‘Home Improvement’ TV show, whereas others would say that he’s Buzz Lightyear.

Wherever you may know him from, he’s Tim Allen, a famous American actor and comedian, and a true petrol head. And like all car fanatics out there, Allen was keen on presenting his latest toy – the new Ford GT, or, as he likes to call it – the ‘silver spaceship’.

The 64-year old took delivery of the supercar recently, so he went to the web to reveal it to anyone who has a few minutes.

Now that we covered those aspects, let’s see what Allen had to say about the impressive Ford GT. On the positive side, it goes like hell through corners, and even faster on straights. On the other hand, it isn’t suitable as a daily driver, and there isn’t any room inside for even the smallest of ‘luggage’, like, let’s say, a keyring tag.

But we already knew that it’s very fast, not that practical, and, for the record, insanely expensive, as Jay Leno, another famous Ford GT owner, pointed out in his review last year.

    I would have thought Infiniti more his brand… said everyone a long time ago.

      Tim Allen? The guy was a coke dealer back in the late 70s and after getting caught decided to turn his life around and become famous Tim Allen.

      A truly great person and great American.

    A bit of a dull colour. But oh well.

    • Moveon Libtards

      Fird and grey…plus that bad plastic Ford interior.

      What’s worse for Ford is GM is bringing out its mid-engine Corvette next year that is going to blow this thing away AND be about $300k+ lower in price.

    Like Tim Allen. Love the Ford GT. Hate the color silver.

      Great guy, Tim Allen.

  • TheBelltower

    I still want one, just maybe a little less now.

  • ErnieB

    Great car.. bad video.. no storage.. still want this car!

  • Rob Banks

    Ford just can’t quit patting themselves on the back with this abomination. Top down, everything about it is a blatant ripoff. Without Ferrari it wouldn’t even exist. Without inspiration from the new nsx and nissan 2020 concept it would look more like its predecessor — an updated 50+ year old retro themed design. Gawd I hate Ford. Tim, do yourself a huge favor and trade this gimmick in for a Ferrari, asap!

      I’d take the GT over any Ferrari, no matter the price. There’s just something about it.

    • Eagle By Singer

      A wild Ferrari fanboy has appeared.

      • Knotmyrealname

        But he has a point. I don’t hate Ford, but the whole American car industry’s big 3 are in a serious design rut whereby they continually look to the past to design their future. Camaro, Charger, Corvette, Ford GT, Mustang…. I could go on, but I haven’t really seen anything new for decades. It’s all so BORING.
        C’mon, design a NEW iconic shape to inspire the next generation.

        • Tumbi Mtika

          I feel that with the exception of the Challenger and maybe the Charger that sentiment would be more apt for the late 2000s and early 2010s.

          This car just like the GT(40) before it was made as an endurance racer, and with the (lack of) options it carries it’s really only street legal because it has to be. I don’t see the NSX following that formula, and this looks nothing like a Vision GT car. This is one of the freshest supercar designs out there.

          His first argument is right though. The entire purpose of the Ford GT is to embarrass Ferraris in endurance racing, and that is what it is achieving.

          • Knotmyrealname

            ? I didn’t see anything in Rob Banks comment about endurance racing? My comments are about America’s car design being stuck in the (ever more distant) glory days.

        • Eagle By Singer

          True. I I like the look of the GT IMO.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Someone’s still salty about Le Mans…

  • Maricaibo

    The Big 3 can design good autos like the GT, even some really great concepts like the Elmiraj.

    I think it’s just boring Americans and the Big 3 are selling what their boring audience wants.
