The Ford GT90 was a concept car developed by Ford as a tribute to the company's renowned GT40.

It was built by a small team in under six months using many components from other companies owned by Ford at the time. It utilised a monocoque chassis, double wishbone suspension, and a 5-speed manual transmission from the Jaguar XJ220. The car's quad-turbocharged DOHC V12 engine was crafted by welding two Modular V8 engines which were cut to have six cylinders each, on to which Garrett turbochargers were added.

The GT90 was shown in January 1995 at the Detroit Auto Show. The car's engine produced 720 horsepower and allowed the car to reach a top speed of 235mph.

The car's exhaust system was claimed to be hot enough to damage its body panels. As a result, the GT90 had to be fitted with ceramic tiles similar to those on the space shuttle in order to stop the car from melting.

The car's design was the first display of Ford's "New Edge" design philosophy, although it also contained elements from the GT40's styling such as the roof cutting doors. It was crafted around a honeycomb-section aluminium monocoque with its body panels moulded from carbon fibre.

Need for Speed II

The Ford GT90 concept car is featured in Need for Speed II as a Class A car. It also appears in the demo version of the game.

The GT90 has the highest power output of any car in the title but is very difficult to drive in corners.
