Production version of GT will appear next year, as will race version to celebrate 50th anniversary of legendary Ford GT40 1-2-3 win at Le Mans in 1966.

The all-new Ford GT – a technology showcase for top EcoBoost® performance, aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fiber construction – today nabbed the prestigious North American award for 2015 Production Preview Concept of the Year, as well as top honors as Most Significant Concept Vehicle of 2015.
