The Ford GT With Nike Paint Jobs Is The Air Jordan From Supercars

Around 1,500 second-generation Ford GTs will be produced, with production starting in 2016 and ending this year. Of all those produced, it’s easy to see at the interweaving of one or two with the unique livery.

But we’re pretty sure this Ford GT from Toronto, Canada is like no other. Presented by YouTuber Tim Burton aka ShmeeThis Blue Oval supercar does a unique paint job created in collaboration with Nike.

Now, we’ve seen shoes inspired by previous cars, such as the Mercedes-Benz-inspired Air Jordan 1. Of course, who will forget the Porsche-inspired Puma Riders and the GMC Hummer EV-inspired John Geiger sneakers?

This is something else entirely. It’s a shoe-inspired supercar, specifically the Chicago Air Jordan 1 from 1985. It’s black and red, found on the body, bumper, and Nike Swoosh, but with the doors and hood painted white to reflect the sneaker’s popular colorway. To complete the look, the Jumpman logo, winged Air Jordan, and Nike are all present on this 1-of-1 Ford GT.

While you might think that this is just a specially wrapped Ford GT, it really isn’t. The details here are all painted, including the dots on the hood that represent the ventilation holes on the Air Jordan 1 sneakers.

The identity of the owners of this Ford GT is a mystery, but we’ll bet they’re big sneakers collectors with an affinity for Air Jordans. It is also among the last batch of Ford GTs to be produced this year, completing the production process.

And as Burton points out, a GT owner definitely buys a supercar because he likes the car and not because he wants to flip it for a profit. You may not like the look of this Ford GT, but this last part deserves respect.
