The Ford Maya was designed in 1984, by Giugiaro. Ford intended the car for production and it had features, including a targa top. The Ford Maya was intended to have 250bhp twin turbo Ford V6 engine, however this was still being developed at the time, so a Ford pushrod iron block 3 litre V6 engine was used from a Ford Taurus, developing 140bhp. The road going car was a fully working prototype, with only the dashboard discounted. The car cost $500,000 to design and produce. CAR magazine tested the Maya in 1985 and found it to be a good handling car with no body roll. Unfortunately Ford never produced the car.
