Project cars come and go, some leaving you breathless, while others turn into Frankenstein creations that should have remained only ideas.

Throw together three differing opinions and the knowledge to back each one and you have one of the toughest builds around.
One thing Team Revvolution has noticed from our most recent high-speed airstrip events (e.g., Shift-S3ctor’s Airstrip Attacks and the Texas Mile) is that many participants compete with Ford GTs. What is it about the coveted supercar that has made it such a popular choice at these events? Perhaps it’s an automobile that is near perfect from the factory, yet has so much potential for modifications. Even famed Texas tuner Hennessey Performance set a new Texas Mile Record (in a GT) last year and has since broken that record twice (257.7 mph and 263.3 mph in 2012, 267.7 mph in 2013). This is a look at the heritage and modified development of the Ford GT.

They represent almost every positive aspect of automotive culture that we here at Revvolution care about: passion, competition, speed, beauty, taste, and exotic builds. The most recent of these events, the Shift-S3ctor Airstrip Attack, embodies one of our favorite aspects of the automotive culture—camaraderie.
