Description

The Ford GT began life as a concept car designed in anticipation of the automaker's centennial year and as part of its drive to showcase and revive its "heritage" names such as Mustang and Thunderbird. At the 2002 auto show[clarification needed], Ford unveiled a new GT40 Concept car. Camilo Pardo, the then head of Ford's "Living Legends" studio, is credited as the chief designer of the GT and worked under the guidance of J Mays. Carroll Shelby, the original designer of the Shelby GT 500, was brought in by Ford to help develop the GT; which included performance testing of the prototype car. While under development, the project was called Petunia.

The GT is similar in outward appearance to the original GT40, but is bigger, wider, and most importantly 3 in (76 mm) taller than the original's 40 in (100 cm) overall height; as a result, a potential name for the car was the GT43. Although the cars are visually related, structurally, there is no similarity between the modern GT and the 1960s GT40 that inspired it. Three pre-production cars were shown to the public in 2003 as part of Ford's centenary celebrations, and delivery of the production version called simply the Ford GT began in the fall of 2004

This car is one of the 101 reserved for Europe and 1 of the 27 delivered in the UK. Originally ordered by the owner of Lola cars, this car has remained in the UK ever since.

Fully serviced by Mountune and by GT101, the Ford GT Specialist, this car is really a stunning beauty.

Last service was carried out in june of 2018.

Finished in Silver metallic, with no stripe and the standard wheels, matching with a black leather interior.

A previous owner also had a X-Fab exhaust installed, which delivers a truly great V8 sound.
