:: Info

The Ford Indigo is a high performance, V-12 concept sports car that takes its design and technology inspiration from some of the fastest cars in the world, Indy car and Formula 1 racing cars.

The Indigo combines Ford and primarily Indy car technologies and practices in the areas of materials, construction techniques, powertrain and aerodynamics to create a new dimension in driving excitement by bringing the thrill of the race track to the street.

But the Indigo is much more than just an exciting new show car. Two versions of the car have been produced: a non-driveable Show car that will tour the major international auto shows in 1996; and a fully-functional, engineered and driveable model, nicknamed the Go car by the Indigo team.

The Go derivative of the Indigo features a monocoque chassis which was designed and manufactured using current Indy car build practices. The chassis was developed in conjunction with Reynard Racing Cars, the UK-based specialist supplier and winner of the 1995 CART/PPG Indy Car World Series Constructor's Championship.
