Word has it that the new Ford GT will not, as is becoming more typical with high performance marques, be equipped with a spare tire. In lieu of the typical donut, Ford will be packing an automatic roadside inflation and sealing system called the ContiComfortKit. Made by Continental Automotive systems, the kit is about the size of a dictionary and takes approximately 9 minutes to seal and inflate a punctured tire. When questioned about their decision not to use runflat tires, Ford stated that it is difficult to procure that sort of tire in the GT's size and still maintain the car's phenomenal handling capabilities.
