Five-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon drives a car for a living, but that doesn't stop hin getting excited about it.

The US-based Kiwi showed off his brand new $660,000 Ford GT supercar this week, which was delivered to his home in Indianapolis.

The Ford GT is a car Dixon knows plenty about, having driven one in a number of endurance races including 24 Hours of Le Mans and 24 Hours of Daytona.

After collecting his fifth IndyCar title in 2018, Dixon has claimed the second most titles in the competition's history, second to only American AJ Foyt who took the title seven times.
