Crazy Al Posted February 3, 2005 Report Share Posted February 3, 2005 This was posted on another forum that I go to. It's pretty sweet. Hopefully this is a first sighting for you guys. Below is a quoted from the guy that sent the pics. Buddy of mine snapped these while at work @ for UNITED - LAX.. a few weeks ago.. Email he wrote to me: While on break.. go figure my luck!!!! Ford spent $5 million developing this car, and another $2 million just building this particular one. This is the first and only one of this type in existance, and was completed yesterday afternoon in California. In January of 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 it's way to the Detroit Auto Show. 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 for it. The entire exterior of the car is polished aluminum, and it has liquid cooled LED headlights. It was amazing seeing this car up close and talking to the project leader for the studio that built it. If only my camera could capture the sound of that V-10....
