2006 Ford GT Coupe As a 21st-century update to an American racing legend, the 2006 Ford GT succeeds because of its timeless design, and world-class performance. This 2006 Ford GT in gorgeous Tungsten Grey Metallic has never been titled, or registered and includes the Manufacturers Statement of Origin. It has only 1,665 miles on the odometer. Simply put, the Ford GT is an all-American supercar that was created in homage to the GT40 racecars that dominated competition at Le Mans in the mid-1960s. A supercharged, midmounted V-8 produces 550 horsepower, which is roughly equivalent to the output from the original, larger engine that went into competition GT40 cars. Vehicle Overview Ford calls it the American supercar reborn. Initially named the GT40 after a renowned Ford racecar of the 1960s, the supercar was renamed GT as it went into production. The original model was built for the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans race, where it beat the world's best racecars in endurance competition -- finishing first, second and third in 1966. Essential elements of the original -- including the stunning low profile and midmounted American V-8 engine -- continue in this latest interpretation of the classic, said J Mays, Ford's vice president of design. Ford said every line and curve is a unique interpretation of the original. Though it's similar in appearance, today's car is 18 inches longer and nearly 4 inches taller than the original racer. Body engineers had to find new techniques to shape the curvaceous body. Similar to the original Ford GT racers, the doors on the new GT are cut into the roof. The long, front overhang is reminiscent of 1960s-era racecars, but the cowl and high-intensity-discharge headlights are distinctly modern. Functional cooling scoops on the leading edge of the rear quarter panels channel fresh air to the engine. An all-aluminum space frame consists of extrusions, castings and stampings. Body panels are made of super-plastic-formed aluminum. A capless fuel-filler system is installed. Four-piston aluminum Brembo monoblock brake calipers work with cross-drilled and vented rotors. Flush-mounted windows help to re-create the fuselage shape of the original, and the coupe has cantilevered doors. Round taillights use indirect LED brake lamps. A brushed-magnesium tunnel contains the center-mounted fuel tank. When the canopy is open, the rear suspension components and engine are visible. Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires ride on 18-inch front wheels, while 19-inch tires go on the rear. Interior Two occupants fit inside the GT coupe. Innovative ventilated seats and the instrument panel -- with analog gauges and a large tachometer -- follow the pattern of the original. Stylized toggle switches like those on the GT40 operate the headlights, fog lights, dimmer, wipers and rear defroster. The leather-wrapped three-spoke steering wheel tilts and telescopes, and the driver can see the engine at work by glancing into the rearview mirror. The deep bucket seats feature carbon-fiber shells and leather seating surfaces. The center console houses a starter button and CD stereo. Air conditioning, remote keyless entry, and power windows, locks and mirrors are standard. Under the Hood Ford's 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 generates 550 horsepower and 500 pounds-feet of torque and breathes with the assistance of an Eaton supercharger. Forged components include the crankshaft, H-beam connecting rods and aluminum pistons. The Ricardo six-speed-manual transaxle features a helical limited-slip differential. Squeezing into the cockpit is no easy matter, but it's well worth the effort if you get the opportunity to sample the GT's prowess on a racetrack. Acceleration is close to startling, and the supercar behaves as calmly and expertly at 140 mph as it does at one-third that speed. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We thank you for your interest in Canepa Design.
