Yellowbullet.com never ceases to amaze us for the type of creations that the members put together. Dan Schoneck is no different in this case, Just check out his post on YB to see all the feed back that he has recieved on his Ford GT.
The fabrication work is absolutely amazing on Dan Schoneck’s Ford GT.
Dan Schoneck may sound familiar to racers and you will most likely know him from his work with his company Schoneck Composites. They construct some of the nicest carbon fiber and fiberglass body panels on the market. It appears that Dan’s skills don’t stop at carbon fiber from judging by the appearance of his supercar. Dan started with a 2005 Ford GT and a dream of having a stress reliever car. His intentions were and still are to run this car on the Texas Mile at over 250mph. The 5.4-liter has been modified with a larger bore punching it out to 358 cubic inches along with a billet crankshaft designed by Dan himself. Running 11.5:1 compression will require upgraded internals so Schoneck relied on Diamond Pistons and Manley billet rods.
Even the wheels are custom one off pieces. The rears measure 21″x13″ wrapped with Pirelli rubber.
Estimated horsepower numbers are around 1600 horsepower while maintaining drivability on the street will be a challenge but with the help of E85 fuel all should be just fine. Adding the boost will be a Procharger F2 and handling all that power will be a Liberty prepared transmission along with a carbon fiber driveshaft. Most notably will be the reproduction of all the body panels in carbon fiber by Dan himself. This should help cut the weight several hundred pounds.
