For those of you that don’t know, the Ford GT is a mid-engine two-seater sports car manufactured and marketed by American automobile manufacturer Ford for the 2005 model year in conjunction with the company’s 2003 centenary. The second generation Ford GT became available for the 2017 model year. The Ford GT began life as a concept car designed in anticipation of the automaker’s centennial year and as part of its drive to showcase and revive its “heritage” names such as Mustang and Thunderbird. At the 2002 North American International Auto Show, Ford unveiled a new GT40 Concept car. Carroll Shelby, the original designer of the Shelby GT 500, was brought in by Ford to help develop the GT; which included performance testing of the prototype car. After six weeks from the unveiling of the GT40 concept, Ford announced a limited production run of the car. Three pre-production cars were shown to the public in 2003 as part of Ford’s centenary celebrations, and delivery of the production version called simply the Ford GT began in the fall of 2004.
And now, I’ve found one on Autotrader in Canada that isn’t absolutely insanely priced (well for those in the market for a Ford GT anyway). This one is a 2006 vintage finished in the Tungsten Grey. This one only has 1,750 miles on it and is well equipped with every available option for the 2006 model year. This includes the Mcintosh AM/FM CD player, Light weight aluminum wheels, painted racing stripes and GREY brake caliper which were about $14,000 in options when the vehicle was new. Of course also standard 5.4L supercharged V8 producing 550 horsepower and 500lb-ft of torque. For 2006, there were only 1,919 produced of these worldwide and I can tell you a fraction of them were in the Tungsten Grey which makes this one in particular even rarer.
You can find it at Yonge-Steeles Ford in Toronto, Canada here listed for $349,888.
