2006 Ford GT Walk Around and Driving Video
Originally conceived as a concept car to celebrate the upcoming centenary of the Ford Motor Company in 2003, the reimagined Ford GT first appeared at the North American International Auto Show in January 2002 prior to formally entering production in 2004. Its concept is widely attributed to then Ford Chief Creative Officer J Mays, who also presided over the introduction of Ford’s similarly retro-inspired fifth-generation Mustang. Each would form part of a concerted Retrofuturistic marketing approach by the Blue Oval in the early 2000s in celebration of their past successes in the luxury and performance sectors; the new GT forming its centerpiece in honor of Ford’s four consecutive wins at Le Mans in the 1960s with its era-defining GT40 and MK IV models. Now joined by the high-tech second generation Ford GT often described as a Le Mans car for the road, the first generation provides a more driver-focused approach with 550 horsepower and a manual transmission which served as the “pace car for an entire company.”
This car is part of the Retro Motors Collection, which comprises over 30 cars largely from the 1950s through today, with a focus on American muscle and high-powered European sports cars. View the full collection here.
