Kick off our “History of Le Mans” 3-part series with one of the most iconic cars in the history of Le Mans, courtesy of one of the most iconic specialty car designers and restorers of our day, Rob Ida, from Morganville, NJ. Many of you know the work of both Rob and his father Bob Ida from over the years. Bob’s newest acquisition is this absolutely stunning 2019 Ford GT. It features a carbon fiber body and 3.5-liter V6 engine with 647 HP. The Ford GT’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine is also the company’s most powerful EcoBoost ever and was developed alongside the GT race engine.
We are happy to announce that Rob had such a great time at our recent Tucker event, he convinced his dad to allow us the privilege of adding the GT to the May 25 Demo Day lineup, but just for the day. You are not going to want to miss it.
Located in Philadelphia, PA, the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is one of the world’s greatest collections of racing sports cars. Through our theme, “The Spirit of Competition”, we celebrate the history and evolution of these magnificent machines.
Assembled over 50 years by Dr. Frederick Simeone, the Museum contains over 75 historically significant cars including Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Mercedes, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Aston Martin, Corvette, Ford, and more.
