Fordís $7 million 2007 Shelby GR1 car of the year
sapeski Ford spent $5 million developing this car, and another $2 million just building this particular one. This is the first and only one of this type in existence, and was completed in early March 2005 in California. In January 2004 it was sketched out on paper. In February, a full-size mockup was molded in clay. Now, a year later, the real thing is on its way to the Detroit Auto Show, delivered by Kitty Hawk. This car wasnít a mockup or a shell. The sculptor, designer and escort for the car is hoping it will take best of show this year. This is the 2007 Ford Shelby GR1 concept car. If Ford decides to put it into production, potential buyers can expect to pay around $200,000 U.S. for it. The entire exterior of the car is polished aluminum, and it has liquid cooled LED headlights...

Dodge spent $20 million developing the viper, back in 2002. BIG DIFFERENCE but similar selling prices. Viper venom can go as much as $300,000+ but SRT-10 maybe around $100,000+ fully loaded. Don't let the fancy lights and exterior fool ya too much, none the less this ford is still a monster[8D]
