2005 FORD GT
*Includes Buyer Commission
Lot #5066 - For nostalgic and current racing fans there is one iconic 'halo' model that best represents the technological capabilities of the Ford marque: the legendary Ford GT40 and its modern Supercar counterpart, the Ford GT. Featuring a strip delete, this all-silver GT with black interior is a 2005 model, amongst 2,027 produced that year and has only 3,407 actual miles. Arriving in prototype form just in time for Ford's centennial celebration in 2003, the Ford GT went into production as the modern, road-going interpretation of the GT40 endurance racing car, famously known for beating Ferrari four times in a row at the 24 Hours of LeMans in the late 1960s. The ultra-high performance Ford GT showcases the finest in advanced technologies, constructed on a lightweight aluminum chassis clothed in superplastic-formed lightweight composite and aluminum body panels, powered by a mid-mounted supercharged quad-cam 550bhp V8 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transaxle, and featuring racing derived suspension and braking systems. With vicious performance on tap, the Ford GT will accelerate from 0-60 in about 3.5 seconds and march on to some 205mph before the speed limiter kicks in. When production ceased in 2006, with just over 4,000 Ford GTs produced, the epic Ford had made its mark on automotive history once again and became an instant blue chip collector car. Already considered among the finest collector's motorcars, one can just imagine what kind of attention this modern supercar will command in a few decades time.
