PIC: A copper 40 Ford

Copper 1940 Ford built on the chassis/running gear of a 2005 Ford 40 GT, love the etched flames - reportedly sold for $1m
The Story:
Commissioned by Ford, the body is handmade from 1.5mm-thick pure copper to a design based on a 1940 Ford Roadster. The copper panels were made in Poland, at a former MiG fighter Plant, and then shipped to Kirkham Motorsports in the U.S. for assembly.

The bodywork is hung on a custom tubular stainless steel chassis of mid-engine/rear wheel drive design, with fully independent dual wishbone front and rear suspension. Other chassis features include Penske racing shocks, Brembo 4-piston brakes, hubs from the 2006 Ford GT, and Kirkham-fabricated billet control arms. Wheels are from the Ford GT - 18x9 front/19x11.5 rear, with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires.
The powertrain is pure Ford GT, using the 2006 Ford GT Modular Engine (5.4-liter, 4-valve, supercharged) and the Ford GT 6-speed transaxle.
