Ford Motor Company

Engine:

All Aluminum Ford 5.4L, DOHC, Supercharged V-8, Dry-Sump Oil System, Rated at 550 horse power

History:

The original Ford GT, GT-40, as it became known as it stood only 40 inches tall, was introduced in 1964 to compete in international endurance racing.  The GT-40 first won at Le Mans in 1966 and repeated in 1967, 1968 and 1969.  It also had wins in the Daytona 24 hour and Sebring 12 hour races as well as Riverside, California and numerous other tracks/races during it's career.

In order to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ford Motor Company, a street version retro-copy of the GT-40 was commissioned.  These cars were built starting in late 2004 though 2006 and were sold as 2005 and 2006 Ford GT's.

The retro-version stands 4 inches taller, 44", than the original GT-40.  It has the latest in suspension design and aerodynamic and down force design. The engine, running gear, brakes, etc., are all the latest high tech components currently available.  This allows the 2005/2006 Ford GT the capability of running 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds, almost 130 mph in the quarter mile, and it has an ignition "chip" to prevent it from exceeding 205 mph as any faster speeds would test the tires dependability.
