I'm well aware of how an engine works and where the power comes from.

Exclusivity may have a small part in the price but that engine is definitely much more highly engineered and refined than any mass production engine you will see from Ford. It's not a knock against Ford and I'm sure the new engine will be a fantastic piece. However, you just can't compare it to a Ferrari engine. Ever.
