I wanted to share this. Important tip, when you bring a car for someone to possibly purchase, don't scream like a little girl then get upset when they give it a thorough test. lol
We had a chance to try out the Superformance Ford GT40 continuation, and it was a real handful, very fast and lots of fun, but the sales guy who brought it out freaked when I started driving it like, well, a high-performance sports car. Everything was fine on the highway, for the most part, but I turned off to an abandoned section of tarmac that I use to push cars a little, and things didn't stay that way. Not that I was flogging the car, I was only "leaning" on it a little; checking acceleration, grip, and brakes. Before long the guy is sweating and nearly panics, so I let him out, he's mad, and continue checking out the car (I told him I'd be back in a few minutes). So I did that, but he wasn't there when I returned.
When I catch up to him, he's a half mile down the road, walking, talking on his cell phone. After I picked him up he told me that he'd almost called the police
and he wanted me to return to the garage immediately. FFS. So we do, in silence, and as soon as I get back I call his boss and explain what happened and within seconds he's laughing hysterically, then asks me what I thought about the car.
I didn't get to hear the conversation he had with the salesman, but I could tell he didn't like it, since his face was flushed and his ears were nearly purple. Sorry, but if you can't take some spirited driving during a demo, selling supercars may not
be the right line of work for you.
Great car, the supercharged Coyote 5.0L is a hoot (700 bhp/610 ft-lbs in a car that weighs 2600lbs), I think it was an Edelbrock crate). While the fit and finish isn't what you'd get from a Ford GT, a real GT40 isn't either, they're 40 years apart.
