Here’s a fascinating look back at the 1995 Ford Indigo Concept, which has appeared on Facebook Marketplace for $195K. Designed by Ford’s technical director Claude Lobo, just two examples were built, of which only one was actually functional – unfortunately, not the one being sold. The working example is powered by a 6.0 L V12 48 valve DOHC engine generating 435 hp and 405 lb⋅ft of torque. Read more for a video, additional pictures and information.
The Indigo features a carbon fiber and fiberglass body, complete with scissor style doors for easy access to the car. High-intensity discharge lamps mounted on the rear view mirrors were added for night driving, while on the inside, it came equipped with deep leather bucket seats, a premium stereo, air-conditioning, and a four-point racing harness. There was also an LCD located behind the steering wheel to display the technical information.
It boasts three-piece modular wheels (measuring 17×11.5-inch at the front and 18×12.5-inch at the rear) wrapped in wide Goodyear tires. The Brembo brakes has rotors that measure 13.2-inch up front and 14.0-inch at the rear. The working Indigo was estimated to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds and could attain a theoretical top speed of 180 mph. Check out the listing here.
