2005 Ford-Shelby GR-1 Concept The Ford GT went out of production in 2006, leaving Ford without a genuine supercar. The GR-1 could have been that car. A 6.4-liter, 605-hp V-10 powers the sinewy silver coupe that was inspired by the 1964 Shelby Daytona coupe. Ford's design chief J. Mays opined that the company could afford to build the GR-1 thanks to its extensive use of Ford GT parts. But no such luck - the car never went into production.
