2007 Ford Shelby GR1 Concept Car

Ford’s $7 million 2007 Shelby GR1 car of the year



Ford spent $5 million developing this car, and
another $2 million just building this particular one.
2007 Ford Shelby GR1 Concept Car

This is the first and only one of this type in existence, and was completed in
early March 2005 in California.


In January 2004 it was sketched out on paper. In February, a
full-size mockup was molded in clay.


Now, a year later, the real thing is on its way to the Detroit Auto Show, delivered by
Kitty Hawk. This car wasn’t a mockup or a shell. The sculptor, designer and
escort for the car is hoping it will take best of show this year.


This is the 2007 Ford Shelby GR1 concept car. If Ford decides to put it into
production, potential buyers can expect to pay around $200,000 U.S. for it.


The entire exterior of the car is polished aluminum, and it has
liquid cooled LED headlights...
