Chris Harris Drifts The 2017 Ford GT: "Worth The Wait"

Out of all the supercars you that are currently assaulting the market (keep in mind that hypercars don't count here), the Ford GT has to be the most demanding. Now, such a phrase is usually intended to describe the connection between the machine and its driver, but we're actually talking about the purchase experience here.

The second generation of the GT arrived after a long hiatus and it saw customers having to go through an unprecedentedly complicated, social media-fueled selection process.

And yes, the machine, which was developed as a racecar and then adapted for the kind of things that happen on public roads, saw its circuit incarnation grabbing the champagne at Le Mans. But we're not in the 60s anymore and we dare say that the supercar clientele won't respond to such track laurels as it did back in the day. So when you add a third aspect to the two mentioned above, namely the half-a-million price tag of the thing, is the Blue Oval halo car really worth all the sacrifice one has to go though in order to bring it into the garage?

Well, if you ask Chris Harris, the answer is a big, fat "yes". The British journo has just released his European drive of the 2017 Ford GT and it's enough to count the times he mentions the word "love" throughout the 5:42 clip to figure out what he thinks of the newcomer.

As you can imagine, the no-longer-independent reviewer (he's a Top Gear star now, remember?) drifted the hell out of the twin-turbo V6 supercar. Don't worry, though, he also went for a few reasonable laps of the track while inside the GT.

Alas, the video showcasing Harris getting his giggles from the Ford GT can't be embedded, so you'll have to head over to the TG website for the clip.
