It has been awhile since we heard from Ford and its iconic GT supercar. When we last spent some time with it, it was on the mean streets of Woodward Avenue where the company allowed a select group of journalists (us included) to experience its charms during the lead up to the Woodward Dream Cruise. But while GT production may be reaching the home stretch, the company is still doing its part to sensure that each model is distinct and special.
