The Ford GT Roadster – The GTX1

by Mike –

Mark Gerisch of Genaddi Design Group, a veteran coachbuilder with a big talent created this modern version of the Ford GT Roadster. The roof of the Ford GTX1 Roadster is made up of four interlocking pieces, which are stowed inside the car when not in use. Two form the top panel, while the other pair replaces the door intrusions of the standard GT.

Photos of the original Ford GT40 Roadster are at the end for comparison.
