With huge throngs surrounding their two supercar prototypes since the Detroit motor show opened to the general public, Ford and General Motors officials are taking the first steps to turn their two prototype supercars into production vehicles. Several senior Ford officials revealed to TheCarConnection that they hope to build a street-ready version of the GT40 for a price slightly above $100,000. The GT40 concept is an unabashedly retro remake of the race car that dominated the European race scene in the late 1960s. Meanwhile, the new Bob Lutz product team is actively investigating which outside production house could build the Cadillac Cien supercar. Modeled after the F-22 Raptor fighter jet, this edgy design would symbolize Caddy's bid to rejoin the ultra-premium luxury segment. Current thinking would mean building only a few hundred of the Cien, with a price tag of at least $250,000, and probably a bit higher, several sources confided.
