2006 Ford GT Supercar
What collection of high-performance Ford and Shelby automobiles would be complete without a Ford GT Supercar? These limited production, 200 MPH modern interpretations of the original GT40 were produced in only 2005 and 2006.
I am lucky enough to have a close friend who handed me his spot in the "Ford Executive" allocation of 2006 GT's. Meaning, I was able to spec out my dream GT and be its original owner. I took delivery of this beast in January of 2006.
Of course, the stock 550HP wasn't good enough, so with the help of a Ford engineer, we coaxed out 679 RWHP with some simple mods and Ford Racing headers and exhaust. We then lowered the suspension to Ford's "optimum" height and dialed in the alignment...oh, and of course I had to make the BBS wheels a titanium color (I despise shiny wheels!).
Needless to say these are incredible cars, and I give Ford all the credit in the world for having the guts to build them. Not to mention they stayed so true to the original GT40 design and concept that the GT truly is a "new" GT40.
Just as Ford did in the 1960's, again, they beat Ferrari at their own game!
