Dearborn, Michigan - Ford Motor Company is planning to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its Model T with a challenge - create a new car based on Henry's original ideas...

The automaker is asking five universities to create a vehicle that shares what Ford says are attributes of the Model T: simple, lightweight, practical and compelling.

Ford says the vehicle should be priced below US$7 000.

The schools are Aachen University in Germany; Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California; Deakin University in Melbourne, Australia; Lawrence Technological University in Southfield, Michigan; and the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

According to Detroit News the two winners will be announced on October 1 when Ford marks the 100th anniversary of the Model T.
