Washtenaw Community College - Ford Five Hundred GT-R reborn after trailer accident

Share

 The Five Hundred GT-R is a dramatic combination of Ford GT design cues in the body shell of a Ford Five Hundred sedan. An engineering feat of converting a front-engine, front-wheel-drive sedan into a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive supercar. The car was designed and built by the students and staff of Washtenaw Community College's Custom Cars & Concepts Program, it made its first debut at the Autorama Car show in Detroit in 2006. On its way back from the 2008 Woodward Dream Cruise, it was involved in a trailer rollover accident. Now it’s back, with a new roof, paint scheme and meaner look. It’s being presented in the North Hall Lobby at the 2011 SEMA Show.
