Everyone has an opinion about Ford's all-new, 40-year-old supercar. For some the GT is just a cynical rip-off of a design classic, whilst others look upon it as a brilliantly evocative homage to a milestone in Ford's 100-year history. It is both controversial and familiar, which is an odd combination. But make no mistake, it is a serious supercar.
