We already knew that Heffner Performance made a turbocharging kit for the Ford GT , so why are we showing this car? Well, because this time he teamed up with artist Camilo Pardo, and we are always looking for an excuse to show a 200+ mph car. Heffner’s twin-turbo kit for the Ford GT Ford GT takes the car’s stock 550 hp from the V8 and boosts it to 900 hp. This over sixty percent improvement gives the car a 0 to 200 mph in under 19 seconds and can hit over 150 mph in quarter mile runs.

Heffner Performance and Camilo Pardo Special Edition Ford GT

Pardo’s contribution is a little more subtile. He’s responsible for items like the "gumball" racing graphics, black BBS wheels and removal of the rear bumper. There is only one of this specific car, and its already sold. But this isn’t the first time Heffner and Pardo teamed up on a twin-turbo Ford GT. So if you really like this car, and you have plenty of cash lying around, they may be motivated to do something similar again.

Press release after the jump.

Ford GT was produced between 2005 and 2006. It began as a concept car designed in anticipation of Ford’s centennial year. Positive response on the auto show circuit in 2002 helped persuade the company to produce the car in limited quantities, and the first production versions appeared in 2005. Production startup began on August 17th, 2001.

The MkII GT40 was built in celebration of Carroll Shelby’s 85TH birthday. The car is a near-exact replication of the original race car, featuring the original styling inside and out; the only difference is the use of electro-galvanized sheet steel in the construction.

Just as the Ford GT becomes a legend in its own time, Avro Motor Cars, the Brooklands-based supercar specialist, has joined forces with Roush Technologies in the UK to create a further strictly limited edition of the car. The Avro 720 Mirage special edition will be limited to just 10 cars – the first of which has just been rolled out of Roush’s Technical Centre in Brentwood, Essex.

Avro 720 Mirage Ford GT

Avro engineers have applied a custom calibration package to the car, to extract a delivered, mean 720bhp at 6950rpm and a massive 627lb.ft. of torque at 4800rpm. The car is also derestricted, which gives a top speed capability in excess of 220mph.

Finished in vibrant Arancia Metallica (Italian Metallic Orange) with semi-matt black details and wheels – and exclusive sill plates and side decals, the 720 Mirage incorporates a significant range of engine and mechanical upgrades. Changes in appearance include the deletion of the rear bumper – partly to save weight – and each car will carry an exclusive numbered Avro plaque on the centre tunnel.

It seems true that all good things must come to an end and so it is with the Ford GTX1 concept car that was designed by Kip Ewing of SVT Division for the 2005 SEMA show in Las Vegas. The car was an instant hit at the show. Plans to build a limited production run of the GTX1 were laid and agreed to between Ford Motor Co. and Genaddi Design Group. Clients could now upgrade their Ford GT Supercars into the GTX1 Roadster version at Genaddi Design Group’s facilities in Green Bay, WI. A limited number of 500 GTX1s, built to the customer’s request, plus an additional 100 SEMA edition cars, built to duplicate the car that appeared at the SEMA show in 2005, were available.
