Background to the latest iteration of the Ford GT:
In 1901, automotive engineer Henry Ford and his 26-horsepower car “Sweepstack” famously won the Detroit-area race in his 70-horsepower “Bullet” against local favorite Alexander Winton, a testament to the lightness and reliability of the Ford-made car. . His victory would promote and attract investors which allowed him to start the Ford Motor Company in 1903 in less than two years.
More than a century later, in 2014, Ford built a twin-turbocharged V6 unit for silent prototype class racing, pushing it to the final victory at the 2015 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. The engine at that time took advantage of similar features of the recently introduced V6 power units in Formula 1, with better packaging, weight and fuel efficiency compared to larger engines used earlier. The engine was inspired by the spirit that Henry Ford used in his original racing car – a focus on innovative engineering rather than conventional thinking.
Occasional observers believe that Ford is only experimenting with a new racing engine, but the company has bigger plans ahead. The final use for the engine was unveiled as a new purpose-built Ford GT race car that would do an incredible job of returning to Le Mans to reclaim Ford’s 1966 Ferrari-bit 1-2-3 Finnish, 50’s glory. Days later in 2016.
Surprisingly, they succeeded in achieving their goal, beating Ferrari once again to take 1st place and write one of the best sports car and racing stories of all time!
The road-legal variant of the Le Mans-winning Ford GT was built alongside the race version, which was carried as a necessary equivalence effort, and in addition, as a gift for Ford fiduciaries, only 1,350 total units were planned. The said production schedule will be completed in just a few months, all allotments are sold out. Made by Ford Affiliate Multimetics, who originally built the Michelotto near Ford which is next to Ferrari, hand-made to order each new Ford GT. The car offered here is an incredibly handsome celebrity owned example of this incredible racecar turned supercar.
