Ford GT X1 (2005-2008)

The Ford GT has never been a practical car so it was common sense to allow drivers the luxury of a convertible roof. The Ford GT X1 was the result of an aftermarket conversion, done for Ford by he Genaddi Design Group. The roof is a complex selection of hard panels which can be arranged to give a variety of options. The rear engine cover is also changed from the hard top version with two buttresses flowing back from the seats. When an engine sounds as good as this supercharged Ford V8 why muffle it behind a closed roof?

A production run of 500 Ford GT X1 convertibles was originally planned, but only 38 were actually ordered and built before production ceased in 2008.
