The 2005 Ford GT was a homage to the iconic GT40 that won Le Mans four times on the trot. The Ford GT GT1 race cars developed by Switzerland-based Matech Concepts went on to race in the FIA GT1 World Championship.

The company had 30 unfinished race chassis left after the ‘GT1’ class was discontinued. For the last 15 years, these have been stored in climate-controlled warehouses by Ford Performance.

Under the skin is a 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V8 race engine that is capable of producing over 1000 hp. It comes paired with a sequential gearbox with paddle shifters. The cars also come with a titanium exhaust, unique intercooler intake manifold, AP Racing brakes, and Michelin Pilot Sport slick tires.

The GT1 track car comes equipped with a full roll cage, a carbon fiber seat with an optional passenger seat, a bespoke carbon dashboard, and a carbon fiber racing wheel.

Two cars will be on display at Motor Bella and the American Speed Festival.
