This Is The Coolest Ford GT Mod Ever

Video

Some mods make it faster, some mods make it look cooler, but this mod allows paraplegic Jason Watt to drive it.

“I don’t want to risk the wheelchair coming off the roof” is not what you usually hear near the end of a track video. But Jason Watt isn’t your average supercar owner. The former racing driver began his career in karting and single seaters, eventually reaching as high as Formula 3000 before a motorcycle accident paralyzed him from his chest down, but he wasn’t about to let that slow him down. After his recovery, he began racing in the Danish Touring Car Championship using cars modified with hand controls, winning the series in 2002.

Beyond racing, he began driving a in charity events to help raise money for the Children’s Cancer Foundation in Denmark. , never mind one of the first 500 built, as Ford was trying to allocate cars to owners that would actually drive them.

But because Jason’s plans included charity drives (check out for more on that program) that would see it put to an amazing use, the harder part was coming up with the money. Watt found a Danish bank willing to foot the bill in exchange for exposure at the events in the form of a green wrap with the logo. The supercar was also modified with hand controls, seats of his own design with a retro look, plus a custom Heffner performance cat-back exhaust to make it sound mean as hell. Youtuber Misha Charoudin hooked up with him and went along for a ride on Watt’s first time on the in 23 years.

Now, I’m not sure if Watt really needed to bring his suction-cup mounted suitcase and wheelchair around on the roof, but you have to admit it does make for one of the most unusual setups ever to lap the Ring, and despite warning that the wheelchair limits his speed and taking his time getting comfortable, he opens it up and picks up enough pace to start passing slower traffic and worrying about his wheelchair flying off the roof.
