Ford GT (2005) at the Technik Museum Sinsheim (Germany)

Between 2004 and 2006, 4038 units of the Ford GT were produced. The GT 40 concept car, a reissue of the Le-Mans racing car Ford GT 40 built between 1964 and 1968, was presented at the 2002 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The concept car was part of the "Living Legends" series which Ford has established to revive earlier models. During 16 months until the 100th anniversary of the company a team developed a series model based on the GT 40 concept car. The final series model lacked the name suffix "40" since this number actually referred to the car height of 40 inches of the 1964 model. The new GT has a height of 43 inches (about 110 cm) and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (about 62 mph) in less than 4 seconds with a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). The above Ford GT was built in 2005, finished in a Centennial White with Blue Stripes exterior and Ebony Black interior.

The Technik Museum Sinsheim (Sinsheim Museum of Technology) is a technology museum with a strong emphasis on motorized means of transport.
It has been located in the town of Sinsheim (south-east of Heidelberg) in the German state of Baden-Württemberg since its opening in 1981. The two supersonic airliners Concorde and Tupolev Tu-144, which are standing together, are the most striking attraction, but the museum has several collections. The collection includes: aircraft, classic vintage cars, racing- and classic motorcycles, racy sports cars, Formula One legends, extensive militaria, mechanical, rarities and fashions. The museum was founded by car enthusiasts, with the entrepreneur Eberhard Layher as initiator. In addition, the museum also features an IMAX 3D cinema with state-of-the-art 4K technology and a 22x27 metre (about 72x88 ft) projection screen. The museum is connected to the Technik Museum Speyer (Speyer Museum of Technology) in the city of Speyer, which is 34 kilometres (21 mi) to the west.
