Since its unveiling at the Detroit motor show, Ford’s Aventador competitor has reached an almost production ready stage. The prototype car spotted here lacking a paint job retains the shape of the original concept from back in Detroit.

The production car will be built by Canadian company Multimatic motorsports who hold a long heritage in racing and have competed in events like Firestone Firehawk Series, Motorola Cup, IMSA Sports Car Championship, Grand American Road Racing Association, American Le Mans Series, Grand-Am Cup, Rolex Sports Car Series, KONI Sports Car Challenge and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The production super car from Ford will be powered by the company’s mid-mounted 3.5-litre twin-turbo EcoBoost engine churning out in excess of 600bhp. The car will also carry forward design elements from the older model with its low and wide stance and 20-inch alloy wheels. The production car will also get ride height adjust and pushrod suspension, adjustable rear wing and carbon-ceramic brakes.

International production is expected to start sometime next year.
