2006 Ford GT

Sold for $148,500

- 550 bhp, 5.4-liter supercharged V8

- One owner and fewer than 10,000 actual miles

- One of only 1,600 examples built in 2006

The concept for the Ford GT was unveiled in 2002 to celebrate the Blue Oval’s upcoming centennial and left no doubt as to its heritage. Inspired by the GT40s that beat Ferrari at Le Mans and won the famed 24-hour race four years in a row, the new GT was more than a mere design throwback. It was a supercar the likes of which Detroit had never before produced, capable of lightning-fast sprints to 60 mph in well under four seconds yet also tremendously competent in every other discipline, cornering and braking included. On top speed alone, it surpassed even the Porsche Carrera GT and Mercedes McLaren SLR. It was even setting new lap records on the Nürburgring’s Nordschleife, faster even than some of the best cars from Porsche.

Power came from a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 with a six-speed gearbox, producing 550 hp and a throaty, uniquely American muscle exhaust note. Only about 4,000 examples were built and – just as Henry Ford II would have wanted – each one is more than capable of blowing the doors off its competition from Maranello.

Delivered new to Hacienda Ford in Edinburg, Texas on November 1st, 2005, this Ford GT was then traded to Lone Star Ford of Houston, Texas on January 17th, 2006 showing only 10 delivery miles. Purchased by the current and only owner from Lone Star Ford on February 6th, 2006, this example is finished in titanium with silver racing stripes and a black leather interior. Maintained to the highest standards, it shows fewer than 10,000 actual miles, and with an MSRP of $149,995 (not including options), it remains one of the very few limited production supercars destined to become a true classic and collector car.
