Rare 1 of 38 GTX1 Roadsters 5.4L Supercharged V8 6 spd 1,916 Miles 3-pc Top ///
You might be asking yourself “What exactly is a Ford GTX1?” Well, simply put, it's a more intense Ford GT that's been custom-tailored with an array of world class upgrades. The car was actually designed by Ford's own Kip Ewing, one of the primary engineers behind the original Ford GT, the Shelby GT500 and the second-generation Ford GT. After debuting a concept at the 2005 SEMA Show, Ford's Special Vehicle Team, now known as Ford Performance, saw fit to put the design in to limited production. So, the team promptly commissioned 500 cars through pro coachbuilders Genaddi Design Group. However, as often happens with highly specialized cars, production was cut short. And after building less than 100 GTX1s, with each upfit costing roughly $200K, the program was unceremoniously discontinued. Specifically created for the GT program, this Ford's 5.4 liter mod motor utilizes a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger to crank out a killer 550 horsepower! That massaged mill easily motivates a Ricardo 6-speed transaxle, which powers a helical limited-slip differential. That drivetrain rides a fully independent suspension, which is married to a sturdy, superplastic-formed frame. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops come courtesy of cross-drilled discs and power-assisted calipers. The big engine roars through Accufab's performance X-pipe exhaust. All that track-ready prowess grips through handsome 5-spoke alloys, which twist 235/45ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1s in front of 315/40ZR19 Goodyear Eagle F1s. And between the doors, black leather highlights all the executive comfort you've come to expect from modern super cars. Highly desirable and extremely potent, this unique Ford is a no-compromises exercise in world-class driving! Call, click or visit www.RKMotors.com for more information.
