The 2006 Ford GT was a collector car from day one because it gave the car world the iconic GT40 lines wrapped around a supercharged V8 that could back up its race car appearance. So when you can find one in a celebrated color combo that's also barely averaged over 500 miles annually, then you know it's the right cut-above classic.
Owning a Ford GT already makes you a standout, but when you want to be noticed even when you showcase this one with other exotics, there's no better way than black with silver stripes. In fact, the color is called Mark II Black, because this car has the livery of the MkII GT40 that won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. So you really do have a fitting 40th anniversary tribute to one of Ford's greatest victories. And while all Ford GTs are rare, this exceptionally slick example is only one of 292 finished in this legendary color combo. And this car is more than just about looks. Ford finally built one for enthusiasts who wanted to capture that same magic that Ford used to capture Le Mans. But building these was a tall order. Engineers and designers had to work together to make sure that iconic silhouette was retained, while every duct fed cold air to competition-grade components. And wrap it in a body that knew how to cheat the wind. This kind of detail means the GT is a hand-assembled supercar worthy of its Ferrari-beating heritage. And this example still lives up to that today, thanks to a careful life with less than 6,600 miles on the odometer.
The GT40 spirit is apparent everywhere inside, too. It starts with those unique doors that help form the roofline – sure it makes it easier to get in and out, but we really know you just love them for how cool they look! Low mileage also means little seat time, and so it all feels fresh. Slide into the perforated leather buckets, and it almost feels like a fighter jet as the dash surrounds you. The large tachometer remains prominently in front to remind you that this GT comes from a true competition past. Plus, the three-spoke steering wheel, brushed aluminum trim, and retro toggle switches complete the GT40 feeling. But the real trick of the Ford GT is how much modern comfort it provides in this retro cool package. You have ice-cold air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, upgraded anti-theft system, and keyless entry/ignition. There's even the optional Mcintosh AM/FM/CD premium audio system, but we really know your favorite soundtrack is really produced by the beast that's just over your shoulders.
Take a look behind you, and you'll see an incredible view of what makes this Ford a true supercar. The supercharged 5.4-liter fuel-injected V8 is on full view, and it's capable of 550 horsepower and 500 lb/ft of torque. That's enough power to propel this coupe to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds, and then on to an electronically limited top speed of 205 mph. On a car that has been babied all its low mileage life, it should be no surprise that this has all the right looks to remain highly original and exceptionally maintained. That powerful V8 is mated to a six-speed Ricardo manual transmission. As you glance inside that exotic engine bay, you'll notice the coilover shocks mounted to the formed aluminum frame keeps the large 315/40/19 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 tires planted to the track or the road. Large Brembo disc brakes behind each factory BBS wheel continues this exceptional modern handling package.
Complete with owner's manual packet, this is the rare supercar that does a terrific job celebrating an exceptional heritage. Don't let an exceptional modern classic slip away, call today!
