And it's for sale.
Everyone dreams of one day owning a supercar, but if you have any taste, you don't just buy the first flashy Ferrari you find. You want something with a story and a storied motorsport heritage. Better yet, buying a car created to outshine Ferrari is the thinking man's way of showing that he knows what supercars are really about. One such car is the current Ford GT, but as impressive as that car is, the 2005 model with its V8 and old-school styling is particularly alluring. There's currently one such car for sale, but as the below images show, it's not exactly driveable.
We've seen GTs for sale in the past, including a rare GTX1, but the one you see here is truly one of a kind since it's been burned to a crisp. The remains of the vehicle are listed on Copart and the short info blurb says that burn damage "may be present on the vehicle". That's all the info provided, besides the fact that keys are not included. It appears that the cause of the fire must have been a high-speed crash since the wheels that survived are bent and buckled. The only question we have here is, "Who would buy this?"
Absolutely none of the car's components seem to be salvageable, with even the block of the engine showing evidence of exposure to extreme heat. There's no shell, no interior whatsoever, and not much of a chassis either. We assume that the seller is just looking to recoup some cash, but we can't imagine what anyone would buy this heap of scrap metal for. Perhaps the gearbox or the engine internals are still okay, but it does not seem likely. Still, if you can think of a use for this heap of junk, the auction date hasn't been announced yet, so you've got time to scrape together a few pennies and finally be the proud owner of an American supercar.
