Ford Shelby GR-1
The Ford Shelby GR-1 was a 2.2 million dollar concept car that was created by the Ford Motor Company. It was first introduced 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, which was presented one year earlier at the 2004 North American International Auto Show.
