Extremely Rare Ford GT MK II Heads To Auction

For Sale / Comments

It originally cost $1.2 million.

With production limited to 1,350 examples, the Ford GT will be a very rare sight on the road. There is, however, an even rarer model. Back in 2019, Ford unveiled the GT MK II, a more extreme, track-only version of the GT with even more power to play with and new aero enhancements. Production is capped at just 45 units, each costing an eye-watering $1.2 million.

Unlike the regular street car, Ford doesn't stop you from selling the GT Mk II within the first two years of ownership. If you missed your chance to buy one when the car was unveiled, a gorgeous GT MK II in pristine condition is heading to auction.

It only has 15 miles on the odometer and, criminally, has never been raced on a track - let's hope its next owner can change that. Ford allowed owners to create their own custom liveries for the GT MK II. The owner of this example opted for a one-off blue, red, and white livery inspired by the iconic Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 driven by Ken Miles in 1966, and it looks stunning.

Many of the aerodynamic components are derived from the Ford GT race car, including a new front splitter, a rear diffuser, dive plants, and a massive rear wing generating huge amounts of downforce. According to Ford, the GT MK II generates 400 percent more downforce than the standard road car.

Since the MK II doesn't need to adhere to racing restrictions, Ford has extracted 700 horsepower from the car's 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine - that's 200 hp more than the GT race car. The GT MK II rides on unique 19-inch wheels with 15.5-inch front and 14.1-inch rear Brembo brakes. The racing modifications continue inside, where the GT MK II features a Sparco racing seat with a six-point racing harness and a rollcage.

This rare Ford GT MK II will be sold at an upcoming Mecum auction in Indianapolis on May 14-22. No estimate has been provided, but it's probably safe to assume the next owner will pay more than the original $1.2 asking price.
