The second-generation Ford GT was introduced in 2016, marking 50 years since Ford’s historic victory over Ferrari at the 1966 24 of Le Mans. It was designed with a focus on downforce and efficient aerodynamics while retaining the characteristics of both the original GT40 and the first-generation Ford GT supercar. This 2018 example was ordered in Liquid Blue over a black Alcantara Dark Energy interior and was optioned with $68,000 in additional equipment, including the Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, the Dark Energy Interior Upgrade Package, the Exterior Gloss Carbon Fiber Package, red brake calipers, titanium lug nuts, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 6-point racing harnesses, 20” gloss black painted wheels, and an OEM car cover. First delivered to Sheehy Ford of Gaithersburg, Maryland, it was acquired by the seller in 2022 and is said to have been transported directly from the dealership to a climate-controlled storage facility. Having never seen road use with just 11 miles on the odometer, this 2018 Ford GT is now being offered at auction by its seller out of Maryland.
The aluminum bodywork is finished in Liquid Blue (PN2BE), constructed over a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with aluminum front and rear subframes. Equipment includes a lightweight Gorilla Glass windscreen, optional red Brembo brake calipers, butterfly doors, LED headlights, an active rear wing, and taillights with integrated heat extractors. The optional Exterior Gloss Carbon Fiber Package equips a gloss carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, a finned rear diffuser, and engine cover louvers. The seller reports the entire body has been covered in paint protection film at a cost of $13k, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The 20” staggered width forged wheels are finished in gloss black, fastened with optional titanium locking lug nuts, and mounted with the original Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
The interior was optioned with the Dark Energy Interior Upgrade Package, featuring Ebony Alcantara wrapped Sparco fixed carbon fiber seats with ribbed Aunde Canelado cloth inserts, debossed Ford GT logos in the headrests, and six-point racing harness anchors. The instrument panel, pillars, headliner, door sills, air register pods, and center console are upholstered in Ebony Alcantara, accented by Matte Dark Stainless appliques on the instrument panel and seat X-brace. The flat-bottomed steering wheel is clad in optional leather instead of Alcantara and features anodized black shift paddles and a leather-wrapped horn pad with a GT logo. Amenities include an adjustable pedal box and telescoping steering wheel column, automatic climate control, a 10.1-inch LCD instrument cluster, a SYNC 3 infotainment interface, voice-activated navigation, keyless entry with push-button start, and a rearview camera.
The twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 sits under a carbon fiber engine cover and is rated at 647 HP and 550 lb.-ft of torque. A 7-speed Getrag dual-clutch transaxle sends power to the rear wheels, allowing for the GT to accelerate to 60 MPH in approximately 3 seconds with a claimed top speed of 216 MPH. Standard equipment includes Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, a redesigned hydraulic pushrod suspension, a front-axle lift system, and selectable driving modes. The optional Akrapovic titanium exhaust system was also selected at an additional cost of $10k, providing weight savings and a more aggressive tone.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, the original window sticker, a battery charger, and a custom OEM blue indoor car cover.
