FORD GT

Although clearly inspired by the original 1960s Ford GT40, the latter-day GT is, underneath its retro styling, a thoroughly modern supercar. The original concept appeared at the 2002 Detroit motor show and was not intended for production. Widespread popular acclaim, and the neat coincidence of the company's approaching centenary celebrations, saw a production car commissioned shortly afterwards

The Ford GT features a mid-mounted supercharged V8 engine that gives 500 bhp and 500 lb-ft of torque, ensuring massive performance is available at almost any speed. The entire project was developed from show concept to production car in just 16 months, the first examples going to customers late in 2004.

It features the latest in modern construction techniques. An aluminium spaceframe chassis provides massive structural strength, enhanced by the use of a very tough centre tunnel that houses the fuel tank. The supercharged V8 engine is based on a block used for US-spec truck and SUV applications, but a supercharger and extensive reworking mean it produces a massive 500 bhp accompanied by 500 lb-ft of torque.

Unlike many of its modern supercar rivals, the GT does without traction and stability control systems - power is transmitted to the rear wheels at the discretion of the driver's right foot, via a six-speed manual gearbox (developed by British engineering firm, Ricardo) and a limited slip differential. Suspension duties are handled by the tried and tested method of double wishbones at each corner.

Creating the road-going GT gave Ford's design team numerous headaches. Most cars are designed from the 'inside out' - bodywork created to fit the packaging requirements of the rest of the car. But because the GT's fundamental silhouette was already decided by the need to stick closely to the proportions of the original GT40, its designers were forced to come up with novel solutions to fit the vast engine, passenger accomodation and modern impact protection structures into this pre-existing shape.

Design work was carried out by a team under the leadership of rising star Camilo Pardo, which had to take a show concept car that was reckoned to be "less than five-percent" production viable and transformed it into a finished vehicle capable of passing tough homologation tests on both sides of the Atlantic. And although the GT's styling is unmistakeably based on that of the GT40, the new car is considerably bigger - 460 mm (18 inches) longer and 101mm (four inches) taller. Access to the cabin is improved by cleverly designed doors, which incorporate a cut-out in the roof panel of the car
