You would think the all-new Ford GT with its 608PS 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 could pretty much do away with any challengers on the road. It appears though all that power still won’t help you escape the long arm of the law.
Apparently some GT test drivers in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado were having a bit too much fun with the new supercar, enough that the local police department had to take action. They weren’t that hard to notice, especially since the trio of Ford GTs were doing well over 160 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.
That said, the boys in blue had to pull over the three supercars which were supposedly packed with data logging equipment. It appeared that the drivers were conducting high-altitude tests in the canyons to see if the supercar would have a hard time climbing up steep roads. Suffice to say, at the speed that they were going the supercars were doing just fine.
Despite their inherent responsibilities as test drivers, that’s still not a good enough excuse to go over – even double – the speed limit on public roads. The cops duly slapped the drivers with tickets and they will be summoned to court accordingly.
We don’t know what Ford executives and engineers will have to say about this, but this goes to show that no one is above the law, not even supercar owners.
