It's begging to be driven.
This 2005 Ford GT is one of only 2,027 built for the model year and was initially sent to Dave Holt Ford-Mercury in Hudson, Wisconsin where it remained under dealer ownership until 2014. This rare American supercar follows the design of the original GT40 racer and bears a resemblance to the latest Ford GT.
Up until 2014 the car only indicated three miles on the odometer, and then spent five years in New York. It's finished in Mark IV Red over Ebony leather and the odometer now shows 510 miles. Interestingly, the car comes equipped with all four available factory options: white racing stripes, red brake calipers, and forged aluminum wheels, as well as a McIntosh stereo.
Powering this classic is a mid-mounted 550-horsepower 5.5-liter supercharged V8 that puts its power down through a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip rear differential. The first-gen Ford GT was only offered in 2005 and 2006 and would go up against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and Dodge Viper SRT-10. The GT featured an extruded aluminum spaceframe, and the exterior got a front splitter, rear diffuser, as well as underbody Venturi tunnels.
This model features forged 18-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires and behind them sits a Brembo braking system with red four-piston monoblock calipers and cross-drilled and ventilated rotors.
Inside you'll find a set of Sparco-designed seats wrapped in black leather with carbon-fiber rear shells, as well as ventilation grommets; a tribute to the original car. The magnesium, center console houses a fuel tank and there are scatterings of brushed aluminum all over. You also get an optional McIntosh sound system, air conditioning, and instrumentation panel with a 220 mph speedometer and an 8k-rpm tachometer.
The car comes with a Ford certificate of origin, an original copy of the dealer invoice, a clean carfax report, as well as a clean Pennsylvania title. The current bid stands at $261,000 and there are nine days left to put in your bid.
