Think John Cena would be interested? Just kidding.
They've apparently gotten over their reservations over in Dearborn about letting owners trade their new Ford GT on the open market, because we've been seeing more of them coming up for grabs.
Bonhams, for example, will auction one off later this month at the Goodwood Revival, and RM Sotheby's has another one available that didn't sell this past weekend in Auburn, Indiana. But neither of those, nor few others we've seen, are quite as desirable as the one Barrett-Jackson will send home with the highest bidder in Las Vegas next month.
As highly sought after as any example of Ford's new supercar is, the one you see here is a rare '66 Heritage Edition – one of only a handful made exclusively in 2017 with a special treatment recalling the GT40 MkII that Chris Amon and Bruce McLaren (yes, that Bruce McLaren) drove to victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1966. The black paintjob was available in either matte or (in this case) gloss finish, with silver stripes, matte-white #2 decals, satin-gold 20-inch monoblock alloys, exposed carbon-fiber trim, and an interior done up in black leather, gold trim, and blue seatbelts.
We don't know exactly how many of these (or the subsequent '67 Heritage and Gulf-liveried editions) Ford made, but this is the first time we've seen one come up for auction. What's more is that it has less than 20 miles on the clock, and will cross the auction block with no reserve price – a first, according to Barrett-Jackson, outside of a charity auction.
If you like what you see and have the means but missed your chance, you'll want to take a briefcase full of money (or maybe just a cashier's check) to the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino on the Las Vegas strip this October 3-5.
