The Ford 427 concept was revealed at the 2003 Detroit Motor Show. The 427 concept was about one thing. Horsepower. The styling was simple, bordering on bland. Yet it still managed to be aggressive and somewhat appealing.

The Ford 427 concept was originally designed as an "all-American sedan" and was intended as a show piece for a possible future lineup of Ford models.

The design of the 427 was inspired by heavy, slab-sided Ford sedans from the 1960s, and the cool, slick, laid-back image they projected. J Mays, Ford's vice president of design said of the 427 concept, "It’s the kind of car that, when you drive it, makes you look like you’re doing something wrong."

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Ford 427 concept is under the hood. Here lies a 7.0 litre V10 based on Ford’s modular V8 engine. This unique engine developed 590 horsepower @ 6500 rpm and 509 lb/ft of torque @ 5500 rpm thanks to several performance parts. These included lightweight forged aluminum pistons with a very short compression height, an aluminum cylinder head derived from the SVT Cobra R Mustang, billet H-beam connecting rods, and lightweight hollow stem valves.
