Exterior Livery Done By Ford GT Designer Camilo Pardo

2024 GT1 Ford GT Signature Edition

Last December, Michigan-based company GT1 bought the previous 20 unfinished chassis of the collectible Ford GT supercar (the last-gen model) with plans to resume the production of the coupe in the following months. And it was just announced that GT1 has joined forces with Camilo Pardo, the Chief Designer of the iconic 2005-06 Ford GT, to offer what will be dubbed the Signature Series for 2024.

What Is The 2024 GT1 Signature Series?

To commemorate this collaboration, GT1 unveiled the first Signature Camilo livery, the #98, at Pebble Beach on August 16, 2023. However, the hype surrounding that unveiling was overtaken, thanks to the reveal of the Ford Mustang GT3. But we’re still going to give this beautiful car some love! The #98 Ford GT Signature Edition pays homage to the 1966 Ken Miles GT40 that claimed victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona. Just by looking at the photos of this car, we can see that the Signature Series is uniquely designed to carry Camilo’s theme through the exterior and interior of the GT1. GT1 Carbon also has plans to bring the #98 car to Motorlux and various Monterey Car Week events.

The supercar features the same GT1 base package as the rest of the early builds, with an entire carbon fiber body featuring GT1’s unique large-format spread tow carbon weave. This can be visible on the black sections for the car’s exterior styling. The GT1 Signature Series is also powered by the same Roush Yates RY45TT as in the #6 GT1 and other customer builds. GT1 Carbon has highlighted that all 2024 GT1s will be available with Signature Series liveries as an option, which will be limited to only one example of each chosen livery theme. All graphics, color treatments, and design queues are hand-painted by craftsman painters, which indicates that the option will add to the overall cost of the car. Pricing is not available on the company website; those interested can only put their name down on reserve, where GT1 will contact them for more information. We suspect the GT1 Ford GT will cost over eight figures, especially with the added Signature Series option.

Camilo will lead the design execution on each Signature Series GT1 based on the inspiration provided. Each livery is designed in his studio in Detroit before going to paint. The Signature Series GT1s will be sure to turn heads and are certainly something to drool over simply by looking at photos. Indeed, it is something to be proud of if it’s sitting in your garage.

We’ll update this story with more photography as soon as it becomes available.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Ford Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
