Built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Ford Motor Company, the GT has been a heavily sought-after modern classic ever since the first model rolled off the production line in 2004. The vehicle’s design is a modern homage of the immensely successful GT40 that achieved four consecutive Le Mans victories from 1966 to 1969.

Maintaining the spirit of the original car, the contemporary interpretation was powered by Ford’s all-aluminum 5.4-liter modular V-8. The 32-valve cylinder heads from the Mustang SVT Cobra R were modified with a thicker wall casting in the exhaust port, and a new camshaft provided increased lift and duration. On top sits a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger feeding a maximum 11.7 psi of boost into the engine. From the factory, power is rated at 550 horsepower and 500 foot-pounds of torque. Four piston aluminum Brembo calipers with cross-drilled and ventilated rotors on all four wheels made sure to bring the vehicle to an immediate stop from any speed.

Most impressively, a top speed of 205 mph and a 0–60 time of 3.3 seconds place the GT in closer competition to the Porsche Carrera GT and Mercedes-McLaren SLR rather than the benchmarked Ferrari 360.

The example offered here remains in mint, virtually unused condition, with 60 actual miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing. The 1,664th of the 2,011 GTs built, it was the 145th of 190 finished in Midnight Blue Clearcoat. It is equipped with the full set of white racing stripes as well as forged aluminum BBS wheels. It is accompanied by its Ford Performance Group delivery documentation, including production information and a copy of the window sticker.

This is the ideal example of the iconic modern American supercar, still very much as it was delivered new over a decade ago.


Addendum

Please note that due to California emissions, this vehicle must be sold to a dealer or out-of-state resident.
