One of just 156 examples finished in Quick Silver for the 2005 model year, this Ford GT also features an Ebony leather interior along with optional racing stripes, BBS forged wheels, and a McIntosh stereo system. The first-generation Ford GT was introduced in 2005 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ford and pays tribute to the original GT40 Mark II race car that was victorious at Le Mans during the late 1960s. The Ford GT was widely considered the first modern supercar built in the United States, featuring an aluminum chassis, Brembo brakes, carbon-fiber bucket seats, and a supercharged 5.4L V8 with a 6-speed manual transmission. This exquisite example is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas while showing under 1,600 miles on the odometer.
Constructed of lightweight aluminum body panels of an extruded aluminum spaceframe, the Ford GT includes an aggressive rear diffuser, dual center-exit exhaust system, side air intakes, a vented hood, a front splitter, and a transparent engine cover. This example is finished in Quick Silver with optional over-the-top stripes in black and 18”/19” BBS forged lightweight aluminum wheels. 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 transmission 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. Stopping power is provided by Brembo brakes featuring four-piston monoblock calipers with cross-drilled and ventilated rotors measuring 14” in the front and 13.2” in the rear.
This sale will include a clean title.
