The concept car Ford Shelby GR-1 has become something very strange back in 2005, when it was presented to the general public. And here, after more than a decade after the presentation, guys from Superformance are going to collect several copies of it.

Despite the great interest and great intrigue surrounding the concept of the Ford Shelby GR-1 in the distant 2005, it eventually never received its development as a full-service serial car. Ford’s then executives decided that the car would not receive due interest among the target audience.

 For them, the decision to start production, albeit small-scale, of the concept Ford Shelby GR-1 was taken by guys from the Californian company Superformance. According to reporters from foreign publications, the tuning studio decided that it was called to breathe new life into the car.

Company Superformance is engaged in the fact that since 1996 it produces (basically) retro cars under an official license from their creators. It’s also known that enthusiasts are teaming up with the Shelby brand to refine some of the car’s nodes and aggregates.

    The stunning GR-1 concept was created as the Ode Coupe Cobra Daytona. The Superformance Company will feature both a gasoline and an electric version of the model. Regardless of which version you choose, the company plans to make these cars ultrafast – acceleration up to the first hundred will take 2.0 seconds.

  “This was a project I had been working on with Ford for around six years,” said SuperState Director Lance Stander. “And here we have a real chance to translate it into life”

A couple of minutes ago, our car magazine wrote that Ford’s prototype tests a prototype of a new crossover.
