The Ford GT is an American mid-engine two-seater sports car. Ford Motor Company produced the Ford GT for the 2005 to 2006 model years. The designers drew inspiration from Ford's GT40 racing cars of the 1960s. The Gulf livery colours originated with the Gulf Oil Corporation in 1967, when its then vice president, Grady Davis, decided to enter his own GT40, #1049, as an independent entry at both Daytona and Sebring. The car was finished in the standard Gulf Oil colours of dark blue with orange trim. In that same year Ford USA decided to withdraw from sports car racing, and, in turn, Gulf Oil Corporation took over the sponsorship of the newly acquired GT40 race team.


The BMW I3 with eDrive opens a new chapter of a visionary design for BMW,  which is tailor-made for electric vehicles. Range is 110-180 kms per charge; charging time is just three hours from a 220-volt household plug. An optional range-extending gas engine provides another 120 kms of range and helps quell range anxiety.
