Jack Roush takes delivery of Ford GT; we wonder what he’ll cook up

Jack Roush on Friday took delivery of a 2017 Ford GT.

The gunmetal gray example wears white racing stripes and is the 15th car in the series. Incidentally, a previous-generation Ford GT Roush took delivery of 2005 was also the 15th car in the series.

In the case of the modern GT, Ford Chairman Bill Ford Jr. got the first example off the line while the second went to ex-Ford CEO Mark Fields. Jay Leno was also among the first few people in the world to take delivery of the stunning supercar.

With his deep ties to Ford, it’s hardly a surprise Roush is also in this group. He’s the main man behind the Roush Fenway Racing NASCAR team and Roush Performance tuning firm. He also has an engineering company that’s worked closely with Ford in developing a number of vehicles, including the GT.

With his intimate knowledge of Ford products, no doubt Roush and his team at Roush Performance will be cooking up some tasty mods for the modern GT.
