This is a high-precision model assembly kit of the Ford GT!
Specifically, this version represents the second-generation iteration
which was unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.

About the Ford GT:

In 2006 the Ford GT came into existence to celebrate the era in which
American determination challenged the dominance of Ferrari in endurance
motor racing in the 1950’s and 60’s. Specifically,
FORD wanted to beat Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and it did with
the FORD GT40! The victory was not just a fluke. Ford beat Ferrari for
the next 3 consecutive years.

The first-generation FORD GT was a retro styled street car that
mimicked the legendary GT40 race car. The second-generation Ford GT is
the opposite. It is a race car that is made to pass street legal laws.
The second-generation Ford GT car went into production in 2016 as it
marked 50 years since the legendary GT40 won the 1966 24 Hours of Le
Mans. In that same year it competed successfully in the 2016 24 Hours
of Le Mans as it won the LMGTE Pro class.

The full-size street legal car, in which this precision model kit
recreates, will only see 1,000 examples made. The 2017 and 2018 model
year cars are for select buyers, such as Jay Leno, and other
high-profile car enthusiasts, while the 2019 model year are for people
who did not make the initial selection process. In its last production
year, the 2020 model will be available to those who simply have the
means to own this high-performance car.

About the model kit:

Ford poured their expertise into the carbon fiber body, endowing it
with highly refined aerodynamics and an alluring teardrop shape
incorporating sweeping rear fenders and unique buttresses, plus an
active rear wing. The 647 horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine
offers awesome power and exemplary response, making this street-legal
car equally at home on the racetrack. Tamiya’s model replica
faithfully captures all these details thanks to the FORD Motor Company
and the real-world example that Tamiya’s car designers
examined in Southern California. The end result is a replica that is
sure to provide car modelers a rewarding building experience and an
exquisite model to display.
