Gt40 Due Next June

Ford execs couldn't have baited a more alluring hook than at Detroit's auto
show in January when they unveiled a long-awaited successor to the fabled Le
Mans-inspired, two-seater sports car of the '60s. Now they have reason to
expect a homerun. People "have been sending in checks and offering their
Ferraris," for a chance to own one of the few GT40s to be built, said product
development vice president Chris Theodore. He handpicked the small, specialty
"Dream Team" that developed the new production GT40 announced this week - a dream
team that includes Carroll Shelby and SVT's John Coletti. "The problem is,
the whole production is sold out to Ford employees," quipped company Veep
Richard Parry-Jones, who heads product development worldwide. He joked that Ford
could set up an employee lottery system since it will only build "hundreds,
not thousands" of the coveted sports cars. And Ford will use the GT40 to kick
off its 100th Anniversary in June 2003. He hinted, "When the sun rises the
day of the Centennial, one will be available for the first time."-
