Ford!!! - Build This!!!

Okay guys (gals too:p ), check this beast out.
Why the hell would'nt for build this thing.
It's called the Indigo (concept) - FMC USA came up with it nearly 5 years ago, and it's by far the best thing they could've built.
Heres some pics...

I just can't say enough about this car.
So I'll let the stats do the talking
6L V12:D :D :D
324kW - RWD - 550nm
:D :D :D

It's got a Six Speed Manual Seqential,
0-100kph in 3.9 s :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:
And it an't as small as you'd think, 4.5 meters long with a wheel base of just under 3 meters.
Lets admit it, every single detail of the beut is MIND BLOWING, and is probably the best looking thing I've seen in my life.
It weighs over a tonne:eek:
Why did'nt FMC stick it into production? - GOOD FUDGEING QUESTION.
Price, WHO CARES
If it were a millon bucks, I'm sure it'd still sell like hot cakes.
BUILD THE DAMN THING:( :( :(

I read somewhee about 1 year ago that ford wanted to put a lemans car in based on the gt90 body. The closest thing to ford in Lemans is the saleen s7.

Hehehe NFS2se I still play that as well. I remember driving the Ford Indigo. IMO it's heaps mroe stable than the GT90, i find to make the GT90 handle you have to put the Rear down force to the highest setting. But the Indigo was supurb, handle ace, and the torque was phenominal, pulled like a turbine from like 1200rpm on.

But i must say i like the idea of Quad Turbo's and 720Hp from the GT-90.
Haven't they made a GT-100 now???
