1996 Ford Indigo Concept news, pictures, specifications, and information
Here is another nice little car put out by the friendly people at Ford
It was not just the name of the IndiGo that was clever (playing on its association wîth IndyCar racing). This was no mere show car but a concept designed from the outset to be feasibly manufactured at some point. Even though most people who worked in the trade accepted that this was too radical to be offered for sale, it was a driveable car.

Ford said that the IndiGo 'captures the essence of the race-track and transforms it into a realistic design for the street.' The styling was strongly rac car in feel, from the bespoilered, narrow nose to the blacked-out wings, while construction also mimicked competition use.

A 441bhp 6.0 litre V-Twelve engine-formed by mating two V-Six units together - was estimated to give a top speed of 170mph and 0-60 time of under four seconds. The six-speed sequential gearbox was derived from race cars, and changes were made by pressing buttons on the §teering wheel. Even the instrument panel on the dashboard was Formula 1 inspired
