"The refined final year model of the 100th anniversary machine."
The Ford GT40 became an instant icon in the GT racing world by dominating the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance, taking the top three spots of the podium in 1966, and winning the next four in a row. In celebration of Ford's 100th anniversary in 2002, the company elected to recreate the legend by producing the spiritual successor to the classic race car of the Sixties, called the Ford GT.
The concept model was presented at the 2002 North American International Auto Show, followed by the unveiling of the production car at the same show in 2004. Its beautiful styling closely resembled that of the original GT40, but the new machine came armed with the latest technological features around. The car measured 17.9 inches longer and 4.0 inches taller than the original, but its larger size was effectively veiled by the stunning exterior styling.
Placed amidships, immediately behind the cabin, was a longitudinally-mounted supercharged 5.4 liter DOHC V-8 that pumped out 550 HP/6500 rpm with 500.0 ft·lb or torque at 3750. It came mated to a manual 6-speed gearbox. The new GT boasted remarkable performance, running from zero to 60 mph (about 62 mph) in 3.3 seconds, while reaching a top speed of 205 mph.
A total of 4,038 GTs were unleashed onto the streets during its three-year production run, and, by all accounts, this revived version of the GT40 will be just as collectable as the original.
