The Ford GT is being shown at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show sporting a stunning yellow shade while not far away is a Ford GT race car in full livery.
Next year, the American automaker will campaign the new Ford GT race car at the world-famous 24 Hours of Le Mans race as a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ford’s historic 1-2-3 victory in the GT40. The GTE racing version is similar to the production model that first debuted at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, sporting a carbon monocoque chassis, aggressive bodywork and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. The race car however boasts a giant rear spoiler, ground effects, center-lock wheels paired to racing tires, a gutted interior and a livery that is unmistakably Ford.
