Hot or Not? Ford’s New GT Supercar Concept Design

hotornotgtsupercar.jpg

Now I know we’re a Mustang site, but if you don’t like the Ford GT Supercar… well, there’s just no hope for you! When Ford reintroduced roughly 4,000 GT Supercars in 2005-2006, not only were they a 550hp-supercharged, street-legal, economically priced beast, but they brought back a legacy of racing history. It’s been over 6 years now, and it looks like some concept designers are getting ansy!

One of my favorites is this new design by Camilo Pardo. You might know his work… he’s a former Ford Designer – the same guy who brought you the GT Supercar back in 2005! Here’s what he had to say about this latest creation:

“With the last Ford GT, we basically had to make it look like the original. With this design, I wanted to leave retro behind and create something more progressive, more futuristic. It goes back to the early clay models we did for the GT90 show car, which was too Star Trek for the public to accept. Note the simplicity of the surfaces; the rear three-quarter and side air intake are now one smooth movement. All the visual energy is channeled to the back. The vehicle gets large back there, which indicates lots of power. A change in dimensions is what makes the form exciting.”

So I want to know what you guys think about this? Hot or Not?

Tell us why in the comments below!

    it looks sick, but it needs to change more from the gt. it looks like the early gt concept art! exactly like it. oh and the gt was economically priced compared to the competition!

      @1a71e186279cd9cff47f68800d14ac81:disqus You’re right.. definitely priced fairly when you look at an F430 or something similar from Europe!

  • Jace spencer

    Awesome design! I just hope it comes with more horsepower than the 05-06 models because whats the point of a super car if its got the same power as a Shelby

  • Rensbergers

    Looks great, like it has a wide body kit made into the car. Gives the the meaner beefy appearance to kick some overall butt

  • Clix813

    It just looks not american enough, they need to stick to the old routes of the original gt 40. Make it american kick the euros ass and call it good.

  • Chris

    Mustangs are muscle cars not sports cars and this concept design is definately too sporty! It looks too much like a Lamborghini or a Lotus or even way too futuristic! I give it a NOT!

  • dave

    thats sick and btw i LOVED the GT90 i still want one

  • Dakota

    Is a bit too curvy for me. Make it have some nice cut lines in areas like the ’05s were, but mix it with the futuristic look.

  • LSP58

    WAYYYYYYYYYYYY better than the old version

    I love the ’05 ’06 GT’s they look sick and full of muscle, a real American Muscle machine, I like how this one looks, but i would like to see it more agressive, a Killer look, something that stop me from even getting close to it on a red light. You know, like being in a red light next to Black, staggered wheels, deeo throaty exhaust a 428 CJ !!!! DAMN!

  • Jonnyb8891

    The damn thing looks like it’ll have so much torque from the huge rear-end design it’ll do a backflip! lol. did someone say lambo… oh that car in the dust back there? lol. Ford is the only way to go.

  • Easygoeing

    looks a little too much like a kit car. Maybe in the flesh it will be better to judge?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-James/606886788 Dylan James

    I absolutely love this design. It’s so futuristic and streamlined. Hopefully it’ll have the power to back it up!

  • PhoenixMustang

    Before I vote I need to see more angles, more details, etc.

  • Kjwillis12

    It’s sexy futuristic but still carries the legacy of the traditionall gt. I can’t wait to see it on the street
     

  • nick

    love the design,  ford should put  the 2011 shelby super snake engine in it 750 hp, body should be carbon fiber then it will kill anything u throw at it

  • Weacoo2003

    It looks like a flattened version of the 2005-2006 Ford GT but with differently shaped headlights. I like it.

  • Bikerboy6925

    It’s like in 1994 when Ford came out with the new body design for the Mustang,there was a design they had that they dropped because they thought it was to aggressive.but in my opion I thought it looked awsome,same with this think it looks great! Excellent job hopefully they put this in production!

  • Bikerboy6925

    keep up the good work! 

  • neidan

    Cool the Mach 5.1.    While I’m a big ford fan, this style is much like the new Camaro in that it’s just to carton like for my taste.  It’s initially striking but quickly tanks on an anime feel. It comes off fine on fist glance but it quickly looses it’s luster becomes somewhat less relevant, even poser like and dated.  I’m not sure exactly why.   It may look better in production though.  Heck give it an electric option, make it affordable, and bump the Tesla.

  • Bearscommand

    Whatever! Looks just like every other Italian supercar in the world. The 5+ Mustangs are much better looking in my opinion. 

  • Kernellsanders

    Too futuristic, For is all about the muscle and this looks like a space ship. I attached a pic of my car, 2005 ford mustang at the bottom. This is a muscle car, that is a jetson mobile.

    • Kernellsanders

       Ford is all about the muscle***

       hey dummy, this is of a FORD GT  not a Mustang.  Ford GT= Sportscar, Mustang=Pony car.  Get your facts straight retard.  Competition with Lamborghini, Ferrari, Vipers, Corvettes.  All vehicles which im sure would leave your pony in the dust.

    If Carrol was designing a GT40 today what would it look like? Im sure it would be a low slung mean racy machine, Smooth where it needed to be with  large surface openings for radiators and brakes in strategic locations.
    I hope he sees this image Im sure he would approve. it has that GT stance with the latest in aerodynamic style
