Aug 13, 2004 Ford is taking the occasion of the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance to unveil the Ford Shelby GR-1 concept, calling the new sports car a salute to 'performance art'. The GR-1 is a uniquely emotional American sports car design that makes a bold statement about Ford's performance future.

"The Ford Shelby Cobra concept was a small step in our plans for the Ford GT supercar architecture and our relationship with Carroll Shelby," says J Mays, Ford Motor Company group vice president of Global Design. "And the Ford Shelby GR-1 is a giant leap toward the future."

I got more of a FordGT / AMDB9 / SLR feel from it...... but it does look pretty mean!

I must say i am pretty happy with the looks of some of the cars ford has been churning out/ or planning to churn out of late.
FordGT, Mustang GTR, Shelby Cobra, n now this.

cheers

Very true Rehaan. Ford is making / planning very goodlooking cars these days.
I've already fallen for this one.

agree with u on the looks front rehaan..........awesome car no doubt. a limited production run with a nice powerful engine will do wonders for ford in increasing their brand value. This should be the perfect succesor to the awesome design of the donor- the ford GT.
