This car shows why V6s are awesome

Everyone seemed to hate the V6 Mustang, but Ginetta has taken that 3.7-litre Ford V6 and worked some serious magic with it in the G55 GT4 racing car. Mike Fernie takes to the Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone to see what's what.
The car Mike is driving is specifically the Ginetta GT Academy car, which is priced at £62,500; that's pretty excellent value for a track day car! And if you have £119,000 you could find yourself in the full GT4 car, ready for a trip to the Nürburgring 24 Hours...

  • Ford 3,7 is derived from an engine which originates from Porsche. Porsche developed a 3.0 lit version for the Cayenne and finally sold it when it chose the cheaper Audi plant .... Ford used it in Jaguar S-type as AJ30 & Mazda..... Cosworth helped redesigning the head for even better flowing... So it has 'race' characteristics...

  • I love V6s I've had once it's 2001 a V6 Mitsubishi 24th valve mivec, it's extremely efficient makes a lovely sound and I think the JDM side produced some fantastic v6 engines. Proves that now being adopted into a lot of sports cars. We need to celebrate all combustion engines now while we still can and the sounds of the V6 v8 and V10 should be loud and lauded👍 lovely Bentley I have a Scalextric model of that is the closest I'll probably ever get to one. Wasn't that the last all British car to win?

He also mentioned clarkson, may and hammond like they were best buddies. who the F is this guy? If this was not drivetribe, I would block this channel in an instant.

  • People are ignorant. Ford offered an I6 in each year of the Mustang from 1964-1973, and a V6 from '74-'86. Six-cylinder engines have been part of the Mustang since its inception until 1987. Yes, a V8 is what it's known for, but when a V6 or even an I4 can get you the same (or better) performance as the entry-level V8, then why avoid them? I love V8 culture as much as the next guy, but performance is performance. While the noise and violence of a V8 is intoxicating, it's not the end-all/be-all of pony car performance.
