Get Your Very Own, Brand-New 2017 Ford GT This Weekend In Indianapolis

Want to get your hands on a new Ford GT? Don’t we all…. The trouble is that they’re hard to come by. But there’s one coming up for grabs this weekend.

Decked out in silver with black stripes, this 2017 Ford GT is the 48th of the 250 made last year. It has glossy carbon-fiber trim, silver forged alloys with titanium lugs, silver brake calipers, and the Dark Energy interior treatment. It has only seven miles on the clock, which means that it has never really been driven. That’s a tragedy, really, but it means that its new owner will have the pleasure of breaking it in.

The latest Ford GT packs a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 producing 647 horsepower (482 kW) and 550 lb-ft (746 Nm) of torque. Driving the rear wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the American-engineered, Canadian-built supercar will rocket to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds before topping out at 216 mph (348 km/h). That is, of course, assuming you have enough road (or preferably track) to exploit the full extent of its performance potential.

Dearborn has committed to making just 250 examples each year, and they get snapped up about as quick as the vehicle can cover the length of a drag strip. This represents a rare opportunity to put one – a brand-spankin’ new one – in your driveway. So if you have the means and the inclination, and dig the silver treatment, head to the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis this weekend. Mecum Auctions will sell this one off to the highest bidder on Saturday. Just don’t go expecting to get a “deal.”

    I’d have two options to find bliss here. 1. Place it on display and lock the doors. 2. Close my eyes while driving so not to see that God forsaken interior! CHEAP! UGLY!

    I’ve driven a Ford passenger van with the same buttons!

      The entire interior is molded from carbon fiber and/or wrapped in Alcantara, which is NOT exactly a cheap way to go about constructing an interior.

      If you are talking about the switch gear, the only parts bin stuff is the headlamp and shifter, but the shifter knob knurling is new. Everything else is bespoke including the steering wheel.

        While I always appreciate facts, Alcantara and Carbon fiber don’t override cheap design-I could’ve been a bit more specific. With Ford playing at this level, I’m certain that investment was necessary considering the build quality of their competitors. Perhaps I’m not as easily impressed.

        Re switch gear, I don’t want to see one switch or button shared with another vehicle, especially one retailing at $30k. Not much to ask considering the low volume production, legendary heritage and price of the GT.

        This is my personal take and I understand my interior style is more Koenigsegg than Ford since I’m rather meticulous with design detail. I LOVE the car, just not the interior which is an important place to be pleased with. I could’ve been more rational with my critique, but it’s 8:30am where I’m at so my tongue is a bit sharp lol.

      It’s a race car for the streets what did you expect? An infotainment system for the kids and a built-in refrigerator? Or how about some cup holders for your water bottle so you can keep hydrated on your way to yoga class?

        I’ll make it simple…

        Conversation focus as noted in my last comment:
        *Build quality
        *switch gear

        Perhaps you could revisit my comment before derailing any farther. There is no reference to amenities here. But because your logic is robotic, perhaps you lack the emotional range for this dialogue – haha! Also refer to Koenigsegg for a better understanding of the conversation so that your next “contribution” doesn’t read as aimless wandering.

          “It’s a RACE car for the streets” built in the spirit of the first GT40. A Koenigsegg is a $2,000,000 car, that’s like complaining that your 2017 Nissan versa didn’t come with a leather and Alcantara interior for $11K.

    Would look much nicer with the carbon fiber wheels.

    WTF, I thought Ford would sue your ass if owner tries to flip these prior to 2 years ownership.


    • Yep, apparently Ford is “investigating” the matter, they did confirm that every owner must sign a contract that forbids you to sell it for at least 2 years.

  • Honda NSX-R

    I live near Indianapolis, I gotta see this

  • Apparently, Ford is investigating the sale as it breach their non-sale over certain period of time contract, the car itself is delivered and registered in Florida.
