Concept cars are part of every manufacturer’s design process, and they often have sharper and more daring looks than production vehicles. This week a few Ford concept cars from Sam Pack’s collection are going on sale, and they are truly amazing. Let’s not forget Ford has introduced some of the most breathtaking designs for both the Lincoln and Ford nameplates in the last decade, and these concepts show just that. Let’s take a look at these Ford concept cars, which include some classic models as well.
2006 Ford GT
Drawing inspiration from the GT40 racing cars of the 60’s, Ford engineers and designers put out a car to celebrate the company’s heritage and racing past. The Ford GT is truly an American supercar, with its sharp looks, a 5.4 liter supercharged V8 engine, and a six-speed manual transmission. The car’s condition is virtually new, as it was driven for less than 13 miles after purchased new, hence its listed price is between $300,000 and $400,000.
1965 Shelby 289 Cobra
Shelby vehicles rocked the auto racing world in the 60’s, taking on established winners like Porsche and Mercedes. This 1965 prototype is a one of a kind, not only because of its powerful V8, capable of producing 525 horsepower, but because of its unique alloy body. This Shelby has been preserved in like-new condition and it only shows 56 miles on its odometer. This is one of several Shelbys being auctioned, including a 1967 427 Shelby Cobra, a 1966 Shelby Mustang GT350 H Race Car, and a 1963 Shelby 289 Cobra.
2002 Lincoln Continental Concept
Back in 2002 Ford had ambitious plans for its Lincoln brand. The Lincoln Continental prototype was designed to maximize space and comfort and easy access to the vehicle. A low body, large doors and a powerful V12 engine were supposed to make this the one Lincoln to own, but the vehicle never got green light for production. This prototype is non-functional and it was only meant for display.
