It was an awesome sight at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. Under a rain-soaked afternoon sky, the first three cars crossing the finish line all wore the Ford GT40 name. It was a proud moment for Henry Ford II, seeing his team break the European carmakers' stronghold on sports-car racing and end Ferrari's streak of supremacy over the famed endurance race. Following that incredible feat were three more consecutive wins at the same race in La Sarthe, making the GT40 one of the most dominant race cars in motorsports history.

While Ford's success on the racetrack has continued in various forms of motor racing since those victories at Le Mans, somehow that enthusiasm never completely made its way into the Blue Oval's production cars. In the current class of road-going exotics, the European manufacturers, especially Ferrari, continue to lead in the marketplace. Sure, there are the Ford Mustang, the Chevrolet Corvette and the Dodge Viper, but fair or not, none of these has ever reached supercar status in the eyes of many enthusiasts.

Enter the 2005 Ford GT.

Since the introduction of the Ford GT concept car at the 2002 North American International Auto Show, it has been an amazingly short 18 months and already the first three production versions have been built in time to celebrate Ford's 100th anniversary (June 2003). Instead of taking the usual four to five years of development time, the extremely enthusiastic Ford GT team compressed the entire schedule to build this high-performance sports car — not only the finest in America, but one to challenge the class benchmark, the Ferrari 360 Modena.
