2017 Ford GT Models To Be Given Away At Detroit Auto Show

At the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the Ford booth will be participating in a three-year-old annual tradition: giving away free, user-assembled model car kits. This year, the model car to be doled out to NAIAS patrons will be a 2017 Ford GT kit made by Revell.

Revell’s special NAIAS 2017 Ford GT model car is made up of 14 snap-together pieces for easy assembly. Like the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor kits given away at last year’s Detroit Auto Show, this kit will feature a special Auto Show stamp to signify its origins, and make the supercar model distinct from the retail 2017 Ford GT model kit by Revell.

The Ford/Revell “Make ‘n Take” model car giveaways at the Detroit Auto Show started in 2014, with a 2015 Ford Mustang model to commemorate the pony car’s first public appearance in the Midwest. Like that model, and the F-150 Raptor after it, the 2017 Ford GT model supercar at next month’s Detroit Auto Show can be assembled in just a few minutes.

“We’ve always enjoyed building Ford products,” said Revell VP of Marketing Brian Eble. “Ford’s iconic designs make them a great brand to replicate. From first time model builders to master builders; Ford products continue to be one of the most sought after subject matter for scale plastic model kits.”

    I have designed a car I call the Ford phoenix electrical magnetic propulsion 1000 hp needs no batteries The power comes from electromagnetic pulses that pushes the Pistons up and down faster and more powerful with more rpm then combustion engine electrical current that provides The spark to the electromagnets comes from the Statter motor inside the transmission which begins when the starter motor spins it ,topSpeed 180 mph distance from New York to California without ever pulling over for gas Or to charge your batteries like the Tesla car or the shitty volt, me and Nikola Tesla are going to take it for a spin right now bye,my contact phone number is 217-463-3167 my name is Kim Richno Ford man ,forever
