The Ford GT made a triumphant return today with the unveiling of a sleek and edgy supercar the automaker plans to build next year.

The GT was developed over the past year by a small team, in a small room in the basement of the Product Development Center in Dearborn, said Joe Hinrichs, Ford president of The Americas. The hidden entrance was only accessible by a few people.
