From 2005-2006, Ford created its halo car in the form inspired by the legendary GT40. Penned by the brilliantly talented Camilo Pardo, the beautiful American supercar remains as beautiful to behold as ever.

The boys from the specialist aftermarket firm, GT Guy LLC, couldn’t agree more and have asked Pardo to create a one-of-a-kind chrome GT. Called the Merkury 4, the team worked with a donor red Ford GT and applied it with a Mirrachrome paint job plus a black-bordered fluorescent orange stripe. The Merkury 4 also features painted valve covers, smoothed clam-shell intakes behind the doors, ceramic-coated exhaust, and wide Michelins wrapping around a set of HRE wheels.

But rather than leaving the special GT to mere aesthetic upgrades, GT Guy also turned the supercharger dial to eleven, brining 725 horsepower to the rear wheels.

Check out the finished Merkury 4 in the gallery below.
