The Ford Dystopia puts a futuristic twist on the GT90, a concept car that debuted in January 1995 at the Detroit Auto Show. This mid-engined supercar was designed as a spiritual successor to the Ford GT40, as does the Dystopia, but with some Cyberpunk flair.
Serial numbered 00004, this 2004 Ford GT pre-production unit, called Confirmation Prototype 1 (CP-1), was used exclusively by the automaker for emissions testing and road certification purposes. Sporting a black finish with white side stripes, it’s powered by a supercharged 5.4-liter V8, mated to a six-speed manual transaxle.
Believe it or not, Michigan-based designer Joey Ruiter’s “Consumer Car” is actually based on a 1993 Ford Festiva GL chassis and not something built for a science fiction movie. Despite how it looks, this vehicle is road-legal in some states with required lighting, passenger restraints, and a rear-mounted license plate frame. It’s powered by a Mazda-sourced “B3” 1.3L inline-4 engine producing 63 hp and 73 lb-ft of torque, pared with a 5-speed manual transmission.
The sixth-generation Ford Bronco will hit showrooms in June, but the automaker has already built race trucks based on its chassis. More specifically, three custom-built Bronco ULTRA4 4400 unlimited class race trucks have been unveiled, and they’ll be competing in this year’s King of the Hammers off-road racing event. Engine modifications have not been revealed, although we do know they sport a custom 4×4 driveline system built on Bronco brand’s racing heritage.
