No stripes and just 4,000 miles!
The Ford GT40 is one of the most iconic racecars ever produced, and the first-gen Ford GT paid homage to those successful racers from the '60s. Ford limited the production run of the GT to the 2005 and 2006 model years and only 4,038 units were ever built. With the launch of the second-gen Ford GT, the 2005-06 GT has skyrocketed in value, so here's your chance to own one of these rare Ford supercars.
As if the Ford GT wasn't special enough, this example has a one-two punch of rarity with just 2,000 miles on the odometer and the racing stripe delete option. Put these two factors together, and this is probably one of the rarest of the Ford GTs you'll be able to find. Other options that this car boasts include the gorgeous BBS wheels and the Ford GT-branded McIntosh audio system. The beautiful Mark II Black paint job is absolutely flawless, and it helps the polished wheels and red Brembo brake calipers pop even more... not that this car needed any extra help when it comes to attracting attention.
While the 2006 Ford GT had a throwback design, this is definitely a modern supercar. The all-aluminum body helped reduce weight, while the rear-mounted 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 generated 550 horsepower, which was a higher power rating than the Dodge Viper of this era. The low weight and high power helped to rocket this car from 0-60 mph in under four seconds. The engine mates to a six-speed manual transmission, and the helical limited slip differential helps maintain optimal traction.
This pristine example of a 2006 Ford GT is being auctioned off alongside other collectible exotic cars from Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Bentley and Porsche at the Rand Luxury Motorcar Auction on Saturday October 12. This auction will be held at the Nassau County Museum of Art, and a portion of the proceeds of the auction will benefit the museum.
