Production-spec Ford GT arrives at Le Mans
The new Ford GT in production guise took part in an all-Ford parade to commemorate the 50th anniversary of their win. The new latest supercar was joined by the historic Ford GT40s that won Le Mans four times back in 1960s.
It was the first time a production-spec Ford GT was put on display. As product chief Raj Nair drove out the new GT, a crowd gathered to have a look at the latest supercar. Given the fact that only 250 units will produced in the next two years, the Ford GT will be a rare spot.
