The current Ford GT is one of the most desirable performance cars currently on the market and more than lives up to its iconic name.
As is usually the case with ultra-expensive supercars, we presume that most GT owners don’t put a ton of mileage on their rides, and wisely refrain from using them in adverse conditions.
However, the owner of this bright yellow 2018 Ford GT was more than willing to take it out and let it play in the snow.
This clip was recently posted by Monticello Motor Club and shows the stunning mid-engine supercar being expertly drifted around a snow-covered racetrack. And you wouldn’t have guessed it, but behind the wheel is a 14-year-old kid.
In all likelihood, the teenager’s parents (or a close relative/friend) own the supercar and while that may rub some people the wrong way, there’s no denying that the teen has impressive car control. Sliding a rear-wheel drive supercar on snow might look easy, but with that much power, it is anything but.
When building the GT, Ford probably didn’t expect owners to drive their vehicles in the snow and instead designed it to be a weapon on a circuit first and a terrific road car second. However, the supercar’s inherent balance, thanks to its motorsport routes, does appear to make it quite controllable on the limit and makes for quite an entertaining, albeit short, video.
