The 2017 Ford GT is undeniably cool but is it as desirable as this barely-used 2006 Ford GT? We’re not so sure.
Set to cross the auction block at RM Sotheby’s Fort Lauderdale event next year, this GT has only been driven 10.8 miles since leaving the factory over a decade ago. It’s consequently one of the lowest-mileage GT’s in the world and is expected to sell for between $300,000 and $350,000.
As the pictures show, the famous American supercar appears absolutely immaculate. In fact, the interior still features the plastic seat covers, Ford floor protectors and a small warning label looped over the six-speed manual shifter. The car really is a time capsule from a simpler time.
In terms of the car’s exterior, it is painted in the ever-popular white with blue racing stripes, silver wheels and red brake calipers. Open up the rear clamshell and you’ll find an engine that’s barely been turned over and is completely free of any dust, dirt or debris. In fact, you could safely eat dinner off the supercharger without a worry in the world.
As with any first-generation Ford GT road car, the supercar is powered by a mid-mounted 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine delivering 550 hp at 6500 rpm and 500 lb-ft of torque at 3750 rpm. Sending power to the rear wheels is a six-speed manual transmission and helical limited-slip differential.
