FORD GT - RED WITH WHITE STRIPE
Die cast model - Signature
Weight in kg
The Ford GT is a mid-engined supercar. It was built by Ford Motor Company from 2003 to 2006. It 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. Camilo Pardo, the head of Ford's "Living Legends" studio, is credited as the chief designer of the GT and worked under the guidance of J Mays.
The designers drew inspiration from Ford's classic GT40 race cars of the 1960s and the GT is sometimes mistaken for its 1960s counterpart.
Positive response on the auto show circuit in 2002 helped persuade the company to produce the car in limited quantities, and the first production versions appeared in 2005. It is a very high-performance, two seater vehicle with a strong styling resemblance to its racing ancester and performance to match. The powerplant is a mid-mounted supercharged 5.4 litre V8, producing 550 horsepower (410kw) and 500 foot-pounds force (680 N-m). Top speed is 212 mph (341 km/h) (electronically limited).
The Ford GT features many new and unique technologies, including super-plastic-formed aluminium body panels, roll-bonded floor panels, a friction-sir welded center tunnel, a "ship-in-a-bottle"gas tank, a capless fuel filler system, one-piece door panels and an aluminium engine cover with a one-piece carbon-fiber inner panel. Brakes are four-piston aluminium Brembo calipers with cross-drilled and vented rotors at all four corners. When the rear canopy is opened, the rear suspension components and engine are visible.
