    Ford GT or Gallardo?

    I have been going back and forth between these two cars for a year or so. Get my mind set on one for a month, then go back to the other. My plan with either car is to have Undergroung Racing do a TT build on it.

    Here are my pros and cons on each

    Ford GT-

    Pros-Value keeps going up, so resale should be fine. Even when you mod these you seem to get your money back out of them. A true american beauty with lots of history. TT for these are fairly inexpensive. If you blow the motor, so what, its just a small block Ford.

    Cons-Prices are getting ridiculous and it is hard to find a decent deal. Where I live there are probably 25 to 30 of them. I know that doesnt sound like much, but our population is only 110000. One guy has 6, and all of them are TT cars but one

    Gallardo

    Pros-Lets face it, a TT all wheel drive Lambo would be freakin nuts! The sound that a TT Gallardo makes is out of this world. Its 1000hp that you can actually use on the street. I love the interior of a 08 Superleggaro. In my opinion, it is the most balanced high HP car you can have next to the Veyron.

    Cons-Italian exotic=$$$$$$$$$$$ for maintenance. I want the egear and I am not sure they have it totally figured out for high HP. Values are still dropping and TT builds are a pretty steep loss for resale.


    So what do you guys think?

    If I was me I'd get the Ford. But that's because I think the lambo looks like sports compact.

    my friend in houston who sold the van halen atom just got an underground racing twin turbo gallardo, I'm thinking he's very very happy with it.

    he also has a murci, but I guess he wanted something more exotic lol

    Get the Ford. I'm not a fan of the Lambos (but few Ferrari guys are ).

    With my top-fuel-damaged hearing, that is the only way I can hear when to shift!!

    no contest

    One day I will purchase a heritage GT. I just haven't found the right one at the right time. It would be a no brainer for me..............

    Ford GT

    No contest
    There will always be a newer/badder Gallardo but it is very unlikely there will be another GT

    The GT is better looking

    The GT is much less common

    Disclaimer: I have a GT and would not sell it for anything!

    You will never regret the GT. I know of several people who had one, sold and then bought another because they missed it.

    A friend of mine up here in Seattle, who is a serious Ferrari collector (I'm talking Pebble-beach winning serious), has the first 2005 GT that Ford delivered. He owns some of the most rare and amazing cars on the planet... and he loves driving his GT.
