A rare opportunity to own one of the most exclusive Ford GTs ever made.
The long-awaited Ford GT has made a triumphant return to fill the void of a halo supercar donning the blue oval. While critics have been praising its performance and advanced active aerodynamics which make it ideal for the track since the new GT originated as a Le Mans race car, some felt that it's simply too brutal for everyday road use. Its predecessor was an altogether different beast. While it looked like a more direct homage to its GT40 ancestor, it was more refined for the road. Only 4,000 examples were made during its two-year lifetime.
But there was one model that was even rarer. At the 2005 SEMA show, Ford revealed an exceedingly rare roadster version of the previous GT called the GTX1. Initially a concept, a deal was struck with Genaddi Design Group to make a limited production run of GTX1 roadsters converted on customer request. The original plan was to produce 500 customer examples along with 100 SEMA edition cars, but only around 100 were made in total over two years. And now one is up for sale at a Dubai (where else?) dealership by Deals On Wheels. This example is finished in yellow with dark silver stripes with matching wheels and brake calipers to make it stand out.
It's also been criminally underused with only 79 miles on the clock, but it looks like it's in immaculate condition as a result. Should you be interested in the rare roadster, you'll need to hand over 1,999,000 Emirati dirham – that's over $540,000. Yes, we know that's more than the starting price of the new Ford GT, but this is an incredibly rare opportunity to own one of the most exclusive Ford GTs ever made.
