The Ford '40 GT is more than a play on words. It is an experiment in automotive alchemy, and one that mixes the appearance of a 1940 Ford with the raw adrenaline of the 2006 Ford GT.

With a body fashioned from pure copper, the Ford '40 GT is a stunning example of automotive art. Its panels were handmade in Poland, in a former Soviet MIG fighter factory and the assembled by the pros at Kirkham Motorsports.

The cabin features a dash and interior trim hand-carved Bubinga - an African hardwood both distinguished and ornate.
