The 1996 Ford Indigo is a two-seater concept roadster by Ford introduced in 1996.

Taken from concept to reality in six months with the help of England's Reynard Motorsport, the Indigo draws heavily on both Indy and Formula 1 car design in its construction. Some of its distinctive characteristics are mirror-mounted fiber optic based headlights, scissor doors, and black leather cockpit which takes cue from Formula One cars, having gear shifting buttons on the steering wheel, four-point harness and F1-styled instrument display.

The Indigo is powered by a rear-mounted 435 bhp V12 engine which brings 75 percent of the car's total torque at 1000 rpm.

Games

Need for Speed II

The Indigo appears in Need for Speed II as a bonus car. It is unlocked upon winning the Tournament event or by entering a cheat code - "lilzip" on PlayStation, and "redracer" on PC.

One of the fastest cars in the game due to its low weight and chassis, it has a firm handling but lacks in terms of top speed.

In the Special Edition re-release it is a regular car available from the beginning, and grouped in Class B alongside the Isdera Commendatore 112i, Italdesign Nazca C2 and Jaguar XJ220.

Trivia

  • In all releases of Need for Speed II, the Ford Indigo can only be selected with a red body paint.
