This wonderful UK supplied Ford GT’s evokes all manner of Motorsport heritage, renewing the renowned styling impact of the cars that dominated Le Mans in the 60’s. Ford recognised that the original design had reached global acclaim and carefully preserved the design cues from the original. However, with road car as opposed to race car success in mind, the manufacturer made up for the shortcomings by giving the car more leg and headroom; as such the car is now more of a ’43’ than a ’40’!
The Colorado Red retains a sharp lustre throughout and remains in excellent cosmetic order.
Preservation of the original concept extends to the cockpit with a considered retro-modern appearance. With both instrumentation and rocker switchgear carried over, as well as the seats maintaining their respective vents, there is a unique tactility and feel to the low slung cabin made further desirable with the designated ‘one of 101 Ford GT’ door sills fitted to the official 101 European supplied cars, the sills still covered with their factory plastic film.
The feature vented leather seats exhibit an original fit and finish with no noticeable creases or distortion whilst the factory fit sound system offers an alternative option to the monstrous V8; a significant speaker sits pride of place above the armrest.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The unit installed here is a highly specialized version of Ford’s Modular engine. It is an all-aluminum, dry-sump 5.4 L 4-valve DOHC with a Lysholm screw-type supercharger that showcases numerous technological features such as dual fuel injectors per cylinder and oil squirters for the piston skirts.
Opening the clam shell is a visual treat for any V8 fan, with the engine sat pride of place topped with a huge supercharger primed to force charged air into all 8 cylinders. Surrounded by a lattice network of aluminium space frame – a real work of art.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The BBS alloy wheels are a simple yet stylish design that perfectly compliment the no nonsense bodywork. With a brushed aluminium finish the 9/11 inch wide rims are wrapped in it original GoodYear Eagle F1’s displaying plenty of tread.
The optional black calipers show in fantastic cosmetic order, completing the colourway of this superb GT, whilst pads and discs are in excellent health.
This GT is one of the 101 European designated cars officially supplied by Ford with 27 of these allocated to the UK.
