This 2004 Ford Shelby Cobra Concept Could Be Worth Millions
The 2004 Shelby Cobra concept is as good as concept cars get. Unlike most other concepts which are just clay models or physical shells without a powertrain, this one-off Cobra is one that actually runs and can be driven. This one-of-a-kind lightweight roadster packs a lot of power under the hood, and it’s about to be auction off for, probably, big bucks.
Forget The Mach-E – This Is the Electric Ford Mustang We Deserved
Remember back when Ford thought it was a good idea to slap the iconic Mach 1 name on an EV SUV? Well, it didn’t go out so well and people only stopped short of rioting in the streets, eventually prompting Ford to back pedal and switch to the name Mach E instead. The name wasn’t much better and is still referred to by some as disgracing what the Mach name stood for, but things have pretty much settled down into acceptance. But, is this really the electric Mustang that we deserved? Well, after seeing this rendering, we’re willing to bet you’ll say we deserved better.
This is the Chinese Market Ford EVOS And, Probably, The Fusion In America and the Mondeo in Europe
The 2021 Auto Shanghai revealed many interesting studies, among which the Ford EVOS. There has been a steadily increasing trend of sedan models, becoming crossovers and SUVs. Although the EVOS looks like a blend of a station wagon and an SUV, it is believed that this will be the next Ford Fusion (in the US) and Ford Mondeo (Europe). The EVOS is the first Ford product, largely developed by the brand’s team in China.
Ford Gatecrashes Moab Easter Jeep Safari With Four Bronco Concepts
How can one forget the day the new 2021 Bronco was launched! Ford had all the momentum for the grand unveiling, but Jeep decided to play a spoilsport at the last minute. Jeep announced that the Wrangler will be launched with a V-8 engine, just hours before the Bronco was supposed to debut. Now, whether you call it a tactical move or Jeep just being a baby, there’s no denying that it must have Ford off quite bad.
Less than a year later, Ford decided to invade the Easter Jeep Safari by bringing four Bronco-based concept models to Moab and steal some attention from Jeep and its concepts.
The 2021 Ford Bronco as a Street Rod? Chip Foose Thought of It
Ford’s plans with the Bronco involve selling a lot of aftermarket bits and bobs on top of the actual cars. This is a move inspired by what Jeep has been doing with Mopar and going further, it is possible that some customers might decide to tune their Broncos to ever greater extents. For those, Chip Foose has an interesting design proposal.
This Bronco 4600 Ultra4 Is What The Bronco Was Meant to Be From The Start
Ford has unveiled the Bronco 4600 race truck series that will take part in the Ultra4 Class races. This comes following the three 4400 rally class Broncos that the automaker showcased earlier this week. The Bronco 4600 will not be street legal, of course, but it comes with a plethora of equipment that can make you go weak in the knees. Ford has noted that it will be based on the two-door Bronco with the V-6 engine.
2020 Fordzilla P1 Virtual Race Car
The coronavirus pandemic has jogged a lot of our memories of 2020, but if you can clear your head long enough to remember what the world was like in March, you might remember a certain project that Ford was developing for the world of video games. It was called the Fordzilla P1, a virtual race car that gamers would have a huge hand in developing. It’s been nine months since Ford announced the Fordzilla P1, and while the world has completely turned upside down since that time, it’s nice to be reminded of much simpler times. The Fordzilla P1 has arrived in real-life form, and while it’s really nothing more than a mock-up of the digital race car, it’s still nice to see it in its physical form. At the very least, all that effort that was put into creating this insane racer bore a seriously forbidden fruit.
Everything We Learned About the Mid-Engined Ford Roush GN34 This Week
Over the years many high-performance cars have come and gone, some more memorable than others. In the 1960s, Ford created the GT40 – a LeMans-winning race car, which has achieved legendary status. Since then, every decade, Ford has been trying to come up with a worthy successor. The 1970s GT70 aimed to recapture some of that essence in a smaller form, while the 1995 GT90 wend balls-out, chasing the limits of what was possible. There is another attempt in the 1980s when Ford started returning to making performance versions of their streetcars. Here are 10 facts about the forgotten Ford GN34 prototype.
Here’s What the 1994 Ford Mustang Cosworth From An Alternate Universe Looks Like
We know we’ve been bombarding you with a lot of Subaru BRZ-related content lately especially of the how-would-it-look-in-STI-clothes variety, so let’s switch it up a little, shall we?
Just check out this 1994 Ford Mustang Cosworth digital unicorn that Abimelec Arellano created and somehow managed to flawlessly piece together. I mean, come on, this looks like it’s fresh out of an unpublished, secret book of Blue Oval concepts that never made it into production.
2021 Ford Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept
The Blue Oval is preparing to unveil a variety of custom builds, including the Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept. Created to showcase the Bronco’s modularity, the concept highlights what amounts to the Bronco Badlands’ ability to act as an urban ride on weekdays and off-road marauder on weekends through the glory of swappable components.
The Bronco Badlands Sasquatch 2-Door Concept will be revealed alongside Ford’s other SEMA offerings during the Ford Auto Nights webcast that starts at 8.PM. tonight.
2020 MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland Concept
Ford’s recipe for its 2020 SEMA Auto Show lineup was simple. Use popular models in the lineup, give them concept makeovers, and let everyone know about all the custom tuning possibilities that can be done to these models. It doesn’t come as a surprise that, in addition to the Ranger and the F-150 trucks, Ford chose the Bronco to its SEMA lineup and created two concepts out of the returning nameplate. One of these concepts is called the MAD Ford Bronco Sport Badlands Overland. Ford teamed with MAD Industries to create this concept, which shows the capacity of Ford’s newest SUV to be as adept in the outdoors as it is on concrete roads. It’s a dream-come-true concept for Bronco fans who have been clamoring for ways to customize the Bronco and turn it into a legitimate 4x4 off-roader.
2021 Ford Bronco Overland Concept
The all-new Bronco has looked very impressive on paper so far and has matched the Wrangler is almost every aspect. But, in its quest to beat the leader of the pack, the biggest question still poses in front of it – can it be accessorized and fitted with various parts and equipment like the Wrangler? Well, Ford has answered this by revealing the Bronco Overland Concept. Does this make Ford’s reincarnated product look versatile?
The Story Behind the Ford GT40 Concept Shows How Far Ford Had to Go To Get It Right
Ford was all about revisiting its illustrious past two decades ago when the Ford GT40 Concept was conceived. However, unlike other throw-back prototypes such as the Forty-Nine, the GT40 Concept actually spawned a production model in the 2005 GT that retained many of the exterior design features of the concept car.
As always, though, the road from the sketchbook of a designer to a finished, full-size prototype, and then to production is long and arduous and, this time, it all started with a look over in the yard of an old nemesis of Ford’s.
1981 Ford Bronco Montana Lobo Concept
At the 1981 Chicago Auto Show, Ford unveiled a rather unusual concept called the Montana Lobo. It seemed too radical for its time and felt as though it was taken straight out of a sci-fi movie. It broke all the perceptions associated with a rugged off-roader like the Bronco. The company came up with this unusual concept to get in the flow with the growing popularity of smaller pickup trucks and SUVs. Although it didn’t make it to production and none of the ideas or design elements were incorporated in the future models, the Bronco Montana Lobo goes down in the history books as one of the most interesting concepts Ford has ever built.
This Slammed Ford Bronco-GT Supercar Mashup is Oddly Satisfying
Let’s put this in a very simple way. The Bronco is an off-roader. The GT is a supercar meant to stay on the tarmac. These two segments run parallel and can never intersect. But, thanks to some geniuses, we now have a pictorial representation of what these two would like when mashed up, and surprisingly, we didn’t have the urge to break our screens. Timothy, who goes by ‘Adry53customs’ on Instagram, uploaded a few renderings of the Bronco-GT lovechild, which happens to be a hot rod, and it is satisfying.
Building the Mustang Mach-E 1400 Was More About Learning Than Being Cool
Ever since Ford introduced the Mustang Cobra Jet 1400 all-electric Mustang, which was essentially a potent electric drag car, we’ve been itching for a performance-oriented Mustang EV to be born. We got as close as the Mustang Mach-E which is, as far as I’m concerned, not a Mustang, but that has been the extent of it. Then, almost out of nowhere, Ford threw us a bone in the Mustang Mach-E 1400. It’s still not a proper Mustang, but it features 1400 horsepower just like the Cobra Jet 1400, and it’s one mean electric machine. Despite its ability to eat tires like I eat cookies, the purpose of the Mach-E 1400 was to help Ford learn while showcasing what the company is capable of.
This Mustang Mach 1, Ford Ranchero Mashup is Exactly the Car Ford Needs to Produce
Pickup trucks have been manufactured since the early days of the Ford Model T, and by the 1950s, they had become so popular that many buyers purchased them for lifestyle rather than utilitarian reasons. As a result, Detroit-based automakers introduced car-based truck, the most iconic being the Ford Ranchero and the Chevrolet El Camino, launched in 1957 and 1959, respectively. Although these kind of two-door, car-based trucks wouldn’t make much financial sense in the modern era, some enthusiasts are still hoping that the Ranchero and the El Camino will return after many decades. It probably won’t happen, but Youtuber TheSketchMonkey just rendered a modern Ranchero based on the Mustang that Ford should really look into.
Digitally Tuned Ford Mach-E Is Closer To the Notion of a Mustang
There’ve been a lot of voices speaking against Ford’s decision to use the Mustang moniker on a crossover, be it a fully-electric one, in tandem with a second name, derived from the iconic Mach 1 nameplate. Some say Ford’s naming gamble might cost the company in the long term, but we’re not here to discuss that.
Today, we stumbled upon a digitally rendered Mach-E that in our view, is closer to what the Mustang name entails. Albeit still a crossover, you’ll see that the vehicle tweaked tastefully by Abimelec Design oozes a lot more sportiness than the real Mach-E EV.
This Rendering of a Shelby Super Snake Widebody Looks Downright Amazing
The tuning world isn’t short of widebody kit options ready to imbue the Ford Mustang’s aesthetics. Just have a look at past SEMA shows. But sometimes it’s the work of freelance pixel manipulators that excites the eyes.
Take this attempt at rendering a Ford Shelby Mustang Super Snake. It keeps all the elements that make the current Mustang a Mustang, all while adding beefed-up bits and bobs here and there without going over the top with it. Almost everything’s right about this rendering, from the overly aggressive front end to the sharpness of that rear wing.
2020 Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports
One of the baddest and meanest trucks to have graced this year’s SEMA Show is this Ford F-250 Super Duty Baja Forged by LGE-CTS Motorsports, a California-based aftermarket company. There is nothing to not like about this truck. It looks vintage, it has the ‘Baja’ identity, and it has the old-school persona attached to it. The Baja Forged Super Duty is an all-in-one mobile command center, workshop, and campsite that will be utilized as a chase truck for the Baja Forged Ford Ranger that was launched by the company at last year’s SEMA Show. Such is the versatility of the truck that even Ford calls this the “Swiss army knife for the modern adventurer.” Need we say anything more about it?
1968 Ford Bronco Wagon by Jay Leno, Ford Performance, LGE-CTS, and SEMA Garage
With a modern Ford Bronco just around the corner, TV personality and car collector Jay Leno gave new life to a first-generation Bronco Wagon with help from Ford Performance and various aftermarket tuning shops. Shown to the public at the 2019 SEMA Show, this Bronco retains the looks of the original SUV, but it features modern underpinnings with a supercharged V-8 built by Ford Performance. The story behind the vehicle is quite interesting, as it was left for Jay Leno as a joke by fellow TV host Craig Ferguson. Leno kept the vehicle in his garage unrestored until he decided that it deserves a new life.
Various companies and shops contributed to the project, starting with Ford Performance, FoMoCo’s very own performance division. Kincer Chassis, Dennis Carpenter Ford Restoration Parts, SEMA Garage, and LGE-CTS Motorsports.
2019 Ford Ranger Rambler by RTR
Ford teamed up with RTR to tag-team the 2020 Ranger and has brought two fine examples to the 2019 SEMA show. One of those concepts was the Ranger RTR, and the other is the Ranger RTR Rambler. While the Ranger RTR is already up for sale, will the Rambler prove that it has what it takes to makes its way to the showroom floor? Let’s take a look at what the Ford Ranger Rambler by RTR is all about!
2020 Ford Urban Escape by LGE-CTS
The 2020 Ford Escape is well-represented at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show. Three different versions of Ford’s hot-selling crossover are in attendance at the world’s largest auto show, including the Ford LGE-CTS Motorsports Urban Escape. As the name implies, the LGE-CTS Urban Escape is a stylish all-around crossover vehicle designed to tackle both urban and off-road environments. It comes with a smattering of upgrades in the form of new equipment and performance modifications, among other things. It’s not the fanciest tuned version of the Escape that’s at SEMA, but it is the one that a lot of people will no doubt gravitate to, in part because of its functionality and all-around usefulness in the real world.
