The Ford Shelby GR-1 was a $2.2 million dollar Concept car that was created by the Ford Motor Company. It was first introduced at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The GR-1 was created with the inspiration from the Carroll Shelby International brand. It was inspired by and bears resemblance to the Shelby Daytona.

Much of the GR-1 chassis and running gear is based on the Ford Shelby Cobra Concept, which was presented one year earlier at the 2004 North American International Auto Show. As with the Ford Shelby Cobra Concept, GR-1 project was led by Manfred Rumpel and developed by Ford's Advanced Product Creation group.

The GR-1 uses a 6.4L all-aluminum V10 engine and also has certain components from the Ford GT. The GR-1 is rated up to 605 hp (451 kW) and up to 501 lb·ft (679 N·m) of Torque. It uses a 6-speed Manual transmission.

In Atari's game Test Drive Unlimited, the Ford Shelby GR-1 is the most expensively priced car, at 2 million credits.
