An Inside Look At The 2005 Ford GT Design

We’d like to take you on a trip back to 2005 today. Back when the original Ford GT made history as one of the most legendary supercars of all time. In this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, Camilo Pardo, the 2005 GT’s lead designer joins the host to cover the work that went into the cars design.

The car you see here belongs to Leno, and is the first production car that was built for a customer. The first 10 examples went to the Ford family, car 11 was auctioned off for charity, which leaves Leno with lucky number 12. Watch the episode below and hear about the ins and outs of the (somewhat) obscure, but ultimately iconic design. Enjoy.

Out and About: The C8 Corvette

Chevrolet recently announced that the brand will unveil its C8 Corvette on July 18th, and as that date approaches, fans have their eyes peeled for clues on the new ride. The C8 is being tested on public roads and highways, giving us not only the opportunity to see a few details, but hear them as well. The video you see here was shot by Ace1260 in Detroit and shows the supercar taking a spin on the highway.

So we want to know what you think. Do you think the engine you hear in this video sounds like a twin-turbo V8? Or more like a GM V8 engine? If we had to guess, we’d say the car will pack an updated 6.2-liter LT1 V8, increasing the power output 500-hp. Check out the video below and let us know what you think. Until the debut of the car mid-July, you know where to find us.

On The Strip: Dodge Charger SRT vs. Classic VW Beetle

Happy Friday, everyone. Today, we’re serving up a little bit of drag strip goodness. Thanks to Wheels, we get to witness a quarter-mile match-up between a modified Dodge Charger Hellcat and a classic air-cooler Volkswagen Beetle. A little spoiler alert: the end result is probably what you are expecting. What’s not so expected, though, is just how close the race is. We’ll leave you with that, and try not to completely ruin it for you. Anyway… check it out, right here.

Spotted In The Wild: Dodge Charger Widebody

By now, you’re probably relatively aware of the Charger Widebody concept. Dodge revealed the ride during March’s Spring Fest Mopar meet in Pomona, California to gauge interest from the public. Well, that interest seems like it was high, because it’s evident production has begun, as a Widebody has been spotted in the wild.

A short video shows the Widebody concept likely out for a spin during a photoshoot. The blue sedan was catured and posted by Instagram user eviil_srt (via Mopar Insiders). The car you see here is based on the SRT Hellcat platform, which means in theory it’s sporting a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 with 707 horsepower, but there’s no way to be certain.
