It only has 16 miles on the clock.
Barrett-Jackson has an ultra-rare and exclusive Ford GT up for sale at the Scottsdale Auction on 21-29 January 2023, and we expect this little yellow number to reach big figures.
Few American supercars stir the emotions quite like the Ford GT. This modern-day tribute to the legendary Ferrari-crushing, Le Mans-winning GT40 has become a legend in itself and unobtainable to most mortals.
From 2004 to 2006, Ford produced a total of 4,038 Ford GTs, and examples of this Ford supercar are reaching insane prices at auction. The rarer Heritage Edition demands an even higher price, and one recently sold for an eye-watering $687,500.
Now there's another rare GT for sale, and we sincerely hope it doesn't end up in a palm tree like the last one sold at an auction.
The Ford GT is an exclusive car, but this Speed Yellow 2006 GT is rarer still. This beautiful example is one of only two cars offered with a factory stripe delete and one of only 75 finished in the Speed Yellow paint job for its model year.
It features 18-inch front and 19-inch rear factory-optional BBS forged alloy wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 supercar tires. Behind those wheels are optional red-painted 4-piston monoblock calipers with cross-drilled and ventilated rotors measuring 14 inches in the front and 13.2 inches in the back.
The exterior also features a vented hood, side intakes, a dual-exit exhaust system, a rear diffuser, a front splitter, and HID headlights.
The interior features a classy Ebony leather interior and hardcore Sparco racing seats with carbon fiber shells and GT40-style ventilation grommets and harness slots. An aluminum console surrounds the rotary climate controls.
The GT 40 is all about driving, which means you only get a McIntosh stereo CD player, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, and push-button start. You won't find any fancy driver assistance tech here. Unlike the 3.5-liter V6 engine that does duty in the latest GT, this model features a glorious 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine mated to a six-speed Ricardo manual transmission with a Helical limited-slip differential.
This near-perfect example of a GT has been stored in a climate-controlled facility and shows only 16 miles on the odometer. It is sold with the original window sticker purchase invoice and a damage-free CARFAX report. With the latest Ford GT's life ending, expect even crazier auction numbers.
