In the automotive world, a lot of wonderful things have been born out of spite. Ferruccio Lamborghini got into the sports car business as the result of a tiff with Enzo Ferrari. And the Old Man of Maranello also inspired Henry Ford II to get even with him for his eleventh-hour backing out of a planned Ford buyout of Ferrari. The Deuce’s weapon of vengeance was, of course, the GT40, which was reincarnated last decade as the Ford GT.
However, there were a couple members of the Ford GT family in between that are now largely forgotten: The GT70, and the GT90 Concept. XCar’s Alex Goy recently got a chance to drive three members of the Blue Oval’s supercar clan (The GT90 was absent, which is understandable given its status as a barely-functional design study.), and found that while they each behave quite differently from one another, each one is clearly a chip off its predecessor’s old block.
