The Ford GT is one of the most interesting supercars in the market, and it’s not just because of all the things we already know about it. The GT is also loaded with plenty of easter eggs that can only be discovered once an owner takes delivery of the car. Supercar collector Manny Khoshbin recently received his GT Heritage Edition, and the first thing he did with it was create a walkaround video with a Ford delivery specialist to learn all of the GT’s secrets.

Steve is the Ford GT delivery specialist assigned to Khoshin’s GT Heritage Edition, and it didn’t take long for him to reveal a neat car hack that opens the supercar’s doors a bit easier. The two also talk about how to manually adjust the pedal position through a lever on the driver side of the center console and bring out the two cup holders that are hidden on the passenger side of the console.

On the aerodynamics side, the GT’s spoiler can be set to manual mode where it’s always deployed while the car is running. The GT’s luggage compartment does not offer a lot of space to hold big cargo, but it is useful storage for the supercar’s lithium battery charger and the titanium tow hook that comes standard across all models of the GT.

Steve also explains that the Ford GT comes with a 600-mile break-in period. That means that the car needs to get an oil change once it hits 600 miles and only after that does the driver get to really push the supercar to its limits.

The last easter egg involves breaking into the GT when it’s dry of power. There’s a secret key stashed in the electric fob that can be used to open the engine cover through a small slot to the side of the rear license plate holder. Once the engine cover is lifted, there’s a hidden tag on the side of the storage compartment that opens the door of the GT.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
