Never titled and sold on the MSO from the original Ford dealership, this stunning 2018 Ford GT has traveled 34 miles since new; the winning bidder will be the original and first registered owner of this car. Powered by a twin-turbocharged and intercooled 3.5L/647 HP DOHC 24-valve EcoBoost engine mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with paddle shifters, this Ford GT is finished in a red exterior with unique painted-on white stripes and Xpel paint protection film.
Capable of 0-60 MPH in a mere 3 seconds and running to a top speed of 216 MPH, this rocket is just as racy inside as it is outside with black Sparco Alcantara carbon fiber racing seats, an F1-styled steering wheel with functional controls and tilt/telescopic column, a 10.1-inch digital instrument cluster and a 6.5-inch touchscreen with Navigation, Bluetooth and a Sync 3 infotainment system. Performance is taken to new levels with an active multimode suspension, automatic adjustable rear wing, high-mounted center exhaust outlets, Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes, carbon fiber 10-spoke wheels with titanium lug nuts and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. All that speed is manageable in the dark with bright LED headlamps that can amply light the road.
The third-generation GT celebrates the original win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans by the midengine Ford racer in 1966, with subsequent victories in 1967, 1968 and 1969. After domination for decades by European manufacturers, including the legend that is Ferrari, the massive Ford success of winning four consecutive years at Le Mans endures as one of the most legendary accomplishments in the annals of auto racing. The second-generation GT came along in 2005-2006, and while it looked similar to the original from the 1960s, the newer version was meant for street use only as a supercar. Much like the original, the third-generation GT performed double duty as both a Le Mans GT-class winning car in 2016 and a supercar that brought the best of Ford’s racing technology to the street. This incredible 2018 Ford GT has never been titled and provides the type of jaw-dropping performance that few cars could ever aspire to.
