• 2006 Ford GT "Merkury 4" by GT Guy

While Ford has been tempting everyone with the idea of offering a successor for their famous GT supercar, tuners are hard at work with the current model they do have on hand. The GT Guy, a garage that tunes Ford GT models exclusively has announced their latest project - the Ford GT "Merkury 4" - developed in cooperation with Camilo Pardo – the designer of the original GT.

The Merkury 4 is based on a solid red Ford GT that features a Mirrachrome abstract custom paint job with a florescent orange center stripe separated with a satin black pinstripe. The car was equipped with HRE center-bolt rims with 275/30ZR19 front and 345/30ZR20 rear Michelin tires. And because one of the most impressive features of the GT can be found under the hood, the tuner has equipped the car’s 5.4 L supercharged modular V8 with a second generation Whipple supercharger and a GTG cold air intake kit that increased the engine’s output to an amazing 725 rwhp at 19lbs of boost on 91 octane fuel.

The package continues with a GTG "Vintage" bumper delete kit, a passport radar detector/jammer system, custom "Ford GT" billet fuel door, billet clamshell center and side clamshell vents, GTG clamshell release hooks, and Penske triple adjustable shocks with custom alignment lowered about 1".

Nice contour and hood design. Aggressive looking with a very impressive V8 engine that can deliver a whopping 725 HP. It’s so nice.

This has a strong appeal even if it’s six years ago; the texture and style is timeless. The models of Ford are very fantastic to look at.

The style and the speed performance looks like it could be a tough competitor of today’s generation. I must say that this has more ability to compete others.

The wheels strikes me most and the color selection of its body paint suits well with the model itself. This will definitely rule the road due to it’s strong appearance.

This Merkury is good but I suggest that it’ll be good if the linings are firm and the openings are more soft in the edges.

It’s impressive but quite over functional. It has too many functions and about the deign, its common. Driving experience would maybe the best but its for racing only.

This car is really suited on being a sports car. The engine specification of it is too powerful and fast. Moreover, I adore its authentic exterior design.

The model was released a year ago but the style and the speed performance looks like it could be a tough competitor of today’s generation. Feels like it gonna show up the maximum speed limit of its own.

I love the looks of this car specially on its front hood, truly designed for a sports car. And I might also say that the engine performance of it is impressive as well, with that supercharged modular V8 that can deliver an output of 725 HP.

Although this model was been released a year ago, but it seems to be competitive in this generation. The wheels are really striking and the color combination of its body paint fits well with the model itself.

This sports car by Ford is really oozing with angst! The design is terrific and truly fits for a car like this. Anyway, I am amazed on the engine
specification of.
