Ford GT designer Camilo Pardo talks about his personalized GT (video)

The new Ford GT is maybe be the star at the moment, but that hasn’t reduced our love for the previous model of Ford GT from 2005. The team at Petrolicious has presented a new movie based on the chief designer of the first-gen GT supercar, Camilo Pardo.

Pardo is an artist and designer by trade. He was lucky enough to start working at Ford right after graduation in 1985. He worked on projects Stateside in Dearborn and in studios in Italy and Germany.

Finally, he found his way to becomethe lead designer for the Ford GT project. After many hours of hard work, Ford said to the the team that the road vehicle  project was cancelled. “As we approached the auto show, they cancelled the production car. It was disappointing,” said Pardo. “My goal was to do a concept vehicle that really looked like a production car, could maybe some way talk everybody to put it back on for production.” With an unbelievable positive reception, Ford announced production plan at the GT’s revealing.

 In this video, Pardo drives his GT which is personalized for him with indicated visual touches. This isn’t his first time. At the begining, he enjoyed an all-white example that was ordered new from a dealer. He moved up then to a GT having the great Heritage livery, finally enjoying two Heritage GTs before it moves  onto a metallic blue example.

He used the blue GT as a canvas, for personalizing it with a amazing white livery for which he inspired by vintage racing. Eventually it ended up on his sixth GT featured in the video with white and black car following.
