Paying tribute to the legendary Ford GT40 that won the 24 Hour at Le Mans four times in a row. Ford introduced the development of the GT in 2002 with production beginning in 2004 for Model Years 2005 and 2006. A total of 4,500 units were scheduled, but only 4,038 were actually produced.
The Ford GT features many new and unique technologies, including superplastic-formed frame, aluminum body panels, roll-bonded floor panels, a friction stir welded center tunnel, covered by a magnesium center console, a "ship-in-a-bottle" gas tank, a capless fuel filler system, one-piece door panels, and an aluminum engine cover with a one-piece carbon fiber inner panel.
Brakes are four-piston aluminum Brembo calipers with cross-drilled and vented rotors at all four corners. When the rear canopy is opened, the rear suspension components and engine are visible.
The mid-mounted 5.4 L Modular V8 engine is all-aluminum with a Lysholm twin screw-type supercharger. It features a forged rotating assembly housed in an aluminum block designed specifically for the GT program. A dry sump oiling system is employed, allowing the engine to sit low in the car's frame. The DOHC 4-valve heads are a revision of the 2000 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R cylinder heads with slightly increased wall casting thickness in the exhaust port. The camshafts have unique specifications, with more lift and duration than those found in the Shelby GT500. Power output is 550 HP at 6500 rpm and 500 lb⋅ft of torque at 3750 rpm.
A Ricardo six-speed manual transmission is fitted featuring a helical limited-slip differential. Car and Driver tested the GT in January 2004 and recorded a 0-60 mph time of 3.3 seconds, with a 5-60 MPH time of 3.7 seconds. Top Speed is 205 MPH and the quarter mile is devoured in 11.8 Seconds.
The 2006 Model year is generally more desirable and only 2,011 units were made for the world and of those only 541 were made in Tungsten, making it one of the rarest and most sought after combinations.
This Tungsten Beauty has just over 2,600 miles since new and is a ONE OWNER car with a clean Carfax. Complete with all of its accessories, this is an investment grade collectible that will not disappoint.
Ford GT's have been steadily appreciating and continue to be highly sought after by the most discerning collectors. This is an amazing, no excuse Ford GT.
