Time to cash in.
The Ford GT is arguably the most recognizable American supercar, and it's worthy of its brilliant reputation. However, many of these cars have barely been driven, mostly because many buyers are looking to protect the investment they made when first purchasing the car. As you may know, Ford stipulated that buyers could not resell a Ford GT for two years. Despite that rule, or perhaps because of it, prices are now skyrocketing as people are finally able to sell their early purchases. But none of them have the claim to fame that this one, now listed on Canepa, has. It was owned by Moray Callum, Ford's Vice President of Design, and it's a beauty.
When he specced the car, he chose a beautiful shade of Liquid Red Metallic paint that is contrasted by the Re-Entry interior package that sees the dash and seats finished in white leather. As stunning as the choice of colors is, another factor adding to the desirability of this particular GT is that it's hardly been driven, with just 204 miles being covered since it was produced. Since this is an early model, the 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 here produces 647 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque. Later models were updated to generate 660 hp, but even without the added power that came later, the GT made excellent use of its output and could hit 216 mph.
There's no denying that this particular Ford GT will attract a lot of attention on Canepa's site, but no price has been disclosed for the vehicle, with the company instead encouraging interested buyers to call for pricing info. We expect that it should breach the million-dollar mark, but considering its provenance and potential future value, it's a sad fact that those 204 miles of driving probably won't see much of an increase before it gets sold again in a few years. With the Heritage Edition being offered as the 1,350-unit production run (which will end in 2022) continues, we'll probably have more stories of more gorgeous GTs for some time to come.
