The Ford GT90 Concept first unveiled by Ford  at the North American International Motor Show in 1995.  The car has carbon fiber construction, mechanized aerodynamic bodywork, a reversing camera and side-mounted infrared sensors. Despite some impressive technology, the car borrowed a lot of parts from other models like its independent double-wishbone suspension and FFD-Ricardo 5-speed manual gearbox from the Jaguar XJ220 and the engine which was actually two Lincoln V8s welded together, with a few cylinders cut off. Ford GT90 Concept  had a top speed of 253mph, which would have made it faster than the legendary McLaren F1, the world’s fastest car at the time. and It cost Ford $3 million back in 1994 and was constructed in only six months. 

The car has been kept in de-humidified chambers, so it’s in like new condition. There is no idea on how much the car will fetch when it goes on sale on January 22, but it is expected to be in the range of millions.
