Ford Shelby GR-1
The Ford Shelby GR-1 is a conceptual super-sportscar car that was created by the Ford Motor Company. It was first introduced to the public at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The GR-1 was created with the inspiration from the Shelby brand. It was inspired by and bears resemblance to the Shelby Daytona.
Much of the GR-1 chassis and running gear is based on the Ford Shelby Cobra Concept a modern version of the 1960s original Shelby Cobra, which was presented one year earlier at the 2004 North American International Auto Show. As with the Ford Shelby Cobra Concept, the GR-1 project was led by Manfred Rumpel and developed by Ford's Advanced Product Creation group.
The GR-1 uses a 6.4L all-aluminum V10 engine and utilizes some components from the Ford GT. The GR-1 is officially rated at 605 hp (451 kW) and 501 lb·ft (679 N·m) of torque. It uses a 6-speed manual transmission.
