Fantastic video. I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing a little of Mr. Pardo’s passion for the Ford GT.

Nice to see someone driving one of these. the only one I have the chance to see are at auctions and never have any mile on them. and they are always selling for big money. Thanks Mr Pardo. I love your art work to.

Even well crafted personal taste ‚improvements‘ – after market exhaust systems, paintjobs/wrapping of body/wheels … may enhance the appearance of an automobile, but not its value. Premiums are paid for originality.
Entertaining story well lensed.

Great video. Some have been getting a little monotonous of late but this one is exciting and energetic.

Excellent film- I consider Camilo a friend… I had the pleasure meeting him in Detroit a few years ago at the International Ford GT Owners Meeting… Camilo invited a few of us back to his studio- an incredible atelier where he creates his works; including painting, industrial design, furniture and even fashion.. I turned and I saw his masterful painting of a Spyker C8, almost identical to the car I own, that he had been working on for another Spyker owner client. I was blown away by the quality and depth of the piece and immediately commissioned one of my… Read more »

In my opinion, Camilo, you couldn’t have done a better job.

Well done as usual. The soundtrack alone is great.

I suspect Mr. Pardo, seeing as how he was so involved in the gestation and production of the Ford GT doesn’t give a flying f*** what some armchair critic calls “art.”

Take a darn pill or something.

Ford Gts are so beautiful and the sound of the engine is out of this world.

Every Tuesday I look forward to a new Petrolicious video.
Every Tuesday I expect a negative reaction from Guitar Slinger

I’m inspired to pick up a GT40 before the end comes.

I once saw an original (or might have been a replica, actually) GT40 and the (then) new GT side by side once. I was shocked by how different they actually are, and I really appreciate the amount of care that went into the design on the new GT. A lot of so-called retro cars are like that, we often write them off as a cynical marketing exercise (which it is), but there’s also a lot of effort going in to make the design work just so. Another great video.

I love these “special” painted Ford GT’s as they pay respectful homage to the originals. Camilo Pardo’s connection to the design and creation of this iconic car will mean they will become part of the Ford GT history and will become even more cherished examples of the car. It goes without saying they will become very much like the BMW M1 “ART CARS” of some years ago. Very valuable and in my opinion very beautiful.

On the subject of what constitutes art, consider this, dear GS: Pablo Picasso, perhaps one of the greatest artists of them all, once said “good artists copy, great artists steal.”

Inventiveness for its own sake can be nonsense, just as “stealing” from the works of those that came before you, more often than not, makes for great art.

I’ve seen all of the BMW art cars and to my sensibilities, some of the art ruined the perfectly good paint of the car.

Before calling ‘ craft ‘ and illustration ‘ Art ‘ and then trying to assign artistic value to it might I suggest you read Robert Hughes ” The Spectacle of Skill ” ?

Cause son … this aint art .. its pastiche ‘ tribute ‘ in the pretense of being art … regardless of who’s name is on the bottom

1) Personally I despise pretentious ‘ tribute car ‘ liveries . Emphasis on the word ‘ pretense 2) Comparing Camilo’s tribute cars to the BMW ‘Art ‘ cars is at best ludicrous . Suffice it to say the BMW Art Cars are paint in original and creative designs [ hence the term ‘ art ‘ ] by some of the 20th -21st centuries most iconic artists .. not an automotive designer who dabbles in illustration and craft 3) So unless there’s some more money than common sense individual is willing to pay a premium for what amounts to a whole… Read more »
