FORD GT HERITAGE
The Ford GT began as a concept car, designed in anticipation of the automaker’s centennial year and as part of its drive to showcase and revive its “heritage” names, such as Mustang and Thunderbird. At the 1995 Detroit Auto Show, the Ford GT90 concept was shown. At the 2002 auto show, Ford unveiled a new GT40 Concept car.

Camilo Pardo, the head of Ford’s “Living Legends” studio, is credited as the chief designer of the GT and worked under the guidance of J Mays. Carroll Shelby was brought in by Ford to help develop the Ford GT, which included performance testing of the prototype car. While the project was still secret, it was called Petunia.

The GT is similar in outward appearance to the original Ford GT40 cars, but bigger, wider, and – most importantly – three inches (76mm) taller than the original 40in (100cm); as a result, a potential name for the car was the GT43.

Although the cars are visually related, structurally there is no similarity between the modern GT and the 1960s GT40 which inspired it. Three production prototype cars were shown in 2003, as part of Ford’s centenary, and delivery of the production Ford GT began in the fall of 2004.

MATECH FORD GT3
When Ford first debuted the Ford GT in 2002, there were no intentions to take it racing, nor was it developed for racing. Thankfully, this didn’t stop Matech Concepts and owner Martin Bartek from developing a version for the FIA’s GT3 class. The new car took advantage of the GT’s sporting engineering and was highly successful, winning the championship in 2008.

Based on one of the most powerful V8s in Ford’s modular engine family, the Ford GT engine produces 550hp and 600 Nm of torque.

Both figures are comparable to those of the 7.0L engine which won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966 and 1967.

The chassis features control arms of unequal-length and coil-over spring damper units, allowing the car to reduce its ride height to the minimum. Braking is led by 4-piston aluminum Brembo monoblock callipers, with cross-drilled and vented rotors at all four corners.

The Ford GT also features many new and unique technologies, including super-plasticformed, aluminum body panels, roll-bonded floor panels, a friction-stir welded centre tunnel, a capless fuel filling system, one-piece door panels and an aluminum engine cover with a one-piece carbon-fibre inner panel.

The Ford GT of the 60s was a legendary race machine with an impressive history. Matech Concepts gave this car the opportunity to make a spectacular comeback on the international racing scene, by participating in the FIA GT3 European Championship.
