Largely considered the first modern supercar out of the United States, the Ford GT was built to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ford and pays homage to the Le Mans-winning GT40 Mark II race car of the late 1960s. This Ford GT is finished in Centennial White and is said to be one of 503 examples produced in this color for the 2005 model year. It comes with optional lightweight forged aluminum wheels, painted racing stripes, grey brake calipers, and a McIntosh stereo system. A true collector’s item with just over 5k miles on the odometer, this fully-optioned Ford GT has remained registered in Texas since 2007 where it is now being offered for auction.
The Centennial White finish is accented by optional Sonic Blue painted racing stripes and grey-painted brake calipers. Constructed of lightweight aluminum body panels of an extruded aluminum spaceframe, the Ford GT includes an aggressive rear diffuser, side air intakes, a vented hood, a front splitter, and a transparent engine cover. This example rides on optional 18”/19” BBS forged alloy wheels dressed in Goodyear tires. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cockpit is trimmed in Ebony leather upholstery with manually adjustable Sparco carbon fiber bucket seats with GT40-style ventilation grommets. Details include aluminum-rimmed GT40-style instrumentation, GT40-inspired dash-mounted toggle switches, a cast magnesium center console with rotary climate controls, an aluminum ball shifter, a handbrake, and Ford-branded door sill guards. The driver is also supplied with air conditioning, remote keyless entry, push-button ignition, and the optional McIntosh stereo system which equips a subwoofer between the seats.
The mid-mounted 5.4-liter DOHC V8 engine is paired with a Lysholm screw-type supercharger for an output of up to 550 HP and 500 lb.-ft of torque, which is sent to the rear wheels through a Ricardo 6-speed manual transaxle and a helical limited-slip differential. The Ford GT can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in as little as 3.3 seconds with a top speed of over 200 MPH. The CARFAX report shows a maintenance inspection completed by Jordan Motorcars in December 2022 as well as the replacement of the battery and hood prop in October of the same year.
