Ford GT passing performance torch to GT500
Production of the Ford GT will come to an end later this month when the last 2006 model is assembled at the company's plant in Wixom, MI. At that time, the Shelby GT500 will become Ford's performance flagship and the company is commemorating the transition with a commercial set to air September 10th. The commercial, called "Germany", shows a GT500 being unloaded onto a dock in a German port. A guy on the dock asks the GT500 owner, "You couldn't find a car you liked in Germany?" to which the owner replies, "No, I couldn't find a speed limit I liked in America." Touché. Of course, Ford's new performance flagship is a bit slower than its predecessor, but it's still chock full of heritage and collectibility like the GT.
