Only 9 miles on the car, and....






The Ford GT began as a concept car designed in anticipation of Ford's centennial year and as part of its drive to showcase and revive its "heritage" names such as Mustang and Thunderbird. Why am I telling you this?

One man located in Kansas City (Mission Hills/Prairie Village) waited 2 years for this $200,000 car.

He had this car only two days and had only put 9 miles on it.

He decided to try out how fast it would go- and decided to punch the gas pedal. When he did… he lost traction on the rear wheel and lost control on a bridge next to golf hole #17 at a major country club (Mission Hills Country Club) which crosses a small creek.

He nailed a steel and concrete pole.

sucks to be that guy.

That will buff right out.

That can be fixed to be serious. To total a car is to exceed 80% of the current street value, and i promise that is not a 100,000 dollar fix.

Most people have no idea how to drive a RWD car.

what a dumbass...

I saw something in the paper yesterday about a guy driving a Ferrari Enzo on Mulholland Drive, lost control at over 100mph and totaled the car. He walked away with a cut lip. Credit to race car engineering.

He told the cops that a German guy he just met named "Deiter" was driving, and after the crash ran up the hill and disappeared.

One of 400 built.

Shows what a dumbass you are, considering that the engine is behind the driver.

There's blue one at my local dealer with a price tag of $220,000 on it and probably worth every penny. With Ford ceasing production, these cars will easily be worth millions down the road. Too bad this dumbass doesn't realize that.

thats the main problem with the fact that anybody with a DL and money can purchase a super high performance vehicle right off the showroom floor.......and go F themselves up

Back in the day when muscle cars were still relatively common and cheap, LOTS of people did the same thing the first time they jumped on the gas.

One guy I know of had just bought an absolutely mint all original `69 Boss 302 Mustang and paid what was at the time a whole bunch of money for it (this was around 1980). The seller trailered it to his house and not an hour later the new owner went sideways burning rubber out of his driveway on his first attempted drive. He failed to counter-steer correctly and ran the car up his own front bank and flipped it right there in front of his own house.

Most people learn to slide a car in the rain or snow or on dirt and they usually don't realize how much faster things happen when instead it's sticky tires, dry pavement, and lots of power.

FWIW, the Boss owner shelled out the bucks to have the Stang repaired. You'd never know it had been rolled.

Dumbass.

If the dumb fuck has enough money to buy that car, he ought to have enough money to get it fixed.

If he's got enough money to buy that, he can afford some time at a local track, do it safely, and not endanger anyone on the public roads.

As usual, excess testosterone > common sense.
