Pristine 2005 Ford GT or 1,000HP Lamborghini Murcielago: Which Would You Buy?
Lamborghini and Ford are two very different companies. Not only geographically are they dramatically separated, but in overall approach to the market. Lamborghini remains niche, building high-end supercars and sports cars for a wealthier clientele. Ford is, of course, one of the American Big Three automakers, and are more known for building cars for the masses. But every once in a while, they're able to deliver something truly special. That’s what we’re here. Two very similar cars, from two very different companies, both for sale on eBay. Click the links below to see each listing.

Performance: 550HP V8
Where the Lamborghini is all flash, the Ford GT brings a bit more muscle to the high-end game. Built in 2005, it was offered in extremely limited numbers, and cost almost $150,000 new. Because of its exclusivity and overall awesomeness, they're only going to go up in price.
The one you see here hails from West Palm Beach, Florida, and is virtually brand-new with only 4,000 miles on the odometer. The only catch—as far as we can tell—is that even though the GT is a rare bird, doubling the price doesn’t make it cheap. Kelly Blue Book estimates that a GT with even more miles than this should only rake in $223,000. But then again, it’s a Ford GT.

Underground Racing Lamborghini Murcielago
Performance: 1,000HP V12 Turbo
Talk about quick; the Lamborghini Murcielago you see here uses an Underground Racing turbo kit to pump out 1,000 horsepower on race fuel. A mere 900 hp on standard pump fuel. It’s coated in a handsome blue with black wheels, and looks pretty pristine from top to bottom.
The buyer is only asking $130,000—which, actually isn’t that much at all. Even more shocking considering it’s got nearly 1,000 horsepower under the hood (though, that could be part of the problem). It’s a far cry from the brute force that is the Ford GT, but I doubt any GT owner would want to line up opposite this Lambo on the drag strip.
While we assume most of you won’t be out shopping for either of these high-end exotics, you can at least cast your vote below and tell us which one you’d chose.
