Poll: Ford GT or Ferrari 488 GTB?

Ford and Ferrari have a motorsports rivalry that reaches back five decades to Le Mans. Today, it looks like Dearborn is rekindling its enmity with Maranello by getting back into the super-car game.

Yes, Ford is set to reintroduce its fabled GT, an exotic machine that, on paper at least, looks like it will really put the hurt on other top-tier automobiles. But Ferrari will not go down without a fight. Which do you prefer the Ford or Ferrari? Let’s explore this topic.

The GT is powered by a brand-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that promises to deliver more than 600 horsepower. It’s matched to a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle that should change gears faster than you can even think.

Aluminum and carbon fiber increase strength while simultaneously reducing weight. The former material is used in the GT’s front and rear sub-frames, the latter in its passenger compartment and structural body panels.

Ford took first, second and third places at Le Mans back in 1966 and it looks like they could do it again with this exciting new car.

In contrast, Ferrari takes a more traditional powertrain approach with its 488 GTB. For the uninitiated, that trio of letters stands for Gran Turismo Berlinetta. Underhood this lust-worthy car features a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 that’s packs a wallop, 661 horses and 561 lb-ft of twist.

With that much oomph on tap the GTB can hit 62 miles an hour (100 km/h) in as little as 3.0 seconds, a blitz that’s enabled by a seven-speed, dual-clutch transmission.

Ensuring it steers as well as it accelerates, this Italian-exotic features magnetic dampers for excellent performance and brakes that are derived from the brand’s flagship LaFerrari model.

    GT
    …that much HP from that little displacement

  • Pete G

    Faster than you can think lol. Meaning that it’s slower.

    Smaller engine Ford still gets worse gas mileage. How do more people prefer to Ford GT must be some Ford diehard fans cause this shouldn’t even be a poll. Ford GT is not even in the same class

    Ferrari all day everyday.

    It says that “the Ford GT promises to deliver more than 600 horsepower” so we don’t know yet if it does deliver more than 600 horsepower. They need to do a review with the Ford GT and then compare it to the Ferrari 488GTB. But now I can only choose the Ferrari 488GTB with 661 horsepower

    Isn’t everything on the Ferrari is hand crafted by so called ‘artisans’? Hand stitched with the finest Italian leather with thread flown in from other exotic locales. Take a look at a Ferrari interior and you know everything just screams quality. The selection of design, the materials, the colour, the way it is so neat and tidy then you look at an American counterpart it just looks very pedestrian. Big hunk of plastic as the centre piece with styling cues that look more like an afterthought than a well executed plan.

  • Saigo Takamori

    Majority of voters are not even in contention of owning either. I suspect you are right about the skewed results; clearly the deserved winner here is the Ferrari with its long lineage of fine automotive designs and countless accolades. If I had the means, it would be a Ferrari no question. If my means meant I didn’t have to choose, surely the GT would also have a home.

    Ferrari for sure! And for its proven quality! If I was in the market for such a car.

  • Chris Daigle

    I’m sure that as soon as they can get their hands on one, people will be happy to test a GT.

  • Chris Daigle

    If I had the means, I would buy both. The Ferrari, because, well it’s a Ferrari.
    The GT because it is a great car that I could actually “hot rod” unlike the Italian car. There will be LOTS of parts available to bring the GT beyond anything that makes sense on the market here.

  • Chris Daigle

    AND it’s meant for endurance racing. I understand they could easily turn the boost up a LOT higher on that engine.

    Ford GT without a doubt. As a performance vehicle both are great but the Ferrari cannot be compared to the Ford GT. A car at this level should always be looked at as an asset and thus we need to look at how it will appreciate/depreciate over time. The 488 is the replacement car to the 458 which was probably one of the greatest cars ever made by Ferrari. And even as a n/a monster its depreciating quickly because many are produced. You have to be accepted by Ford to purchase a Ford GT and only a few 100 are selected for it. I also assure you that if you see both cars in real life the Ford GT blows the Ferrari out of the water in how absolutely jaw dropping it looks. The interior cabin of the Ford GT is insane embodying a feel of sitting in a GT3 car. Everybody talks about how ‘cheap’ american cars are but this doesnt feel like that at all. Having seen and sat in the Ford GT at the Detroit Auto Show and gone for a ride in a 488 I can say for certain that the Ford is a much more special place to be in. Not to say the Ferrari isn’t a phenomenal car but the two are not comparable at all. Allowing the name of Ferrari do the talking instead of the car is just naive

    You have to be accepted by Ferrari to purchase a brand new 488 too.
