2017 Ford GT With 40 Miles On The Clock Destroyed By Fire

A freshly-delivered 2017 Ford GT has been destroyed by fire in what appears to be one of the first incidents involving the supercar.

Details of the fire are virtually non-existent at this stage, but we did manage to source these two images of the car. It is a sad, sad sight.

The images confirm that the fire started somewhere in rear or middle of the Ford, likely either in the engine itself, the exhaust system or the surrounding electronics. The blaze appears to have quickly spread, destroying the entire rear and leaving nothing but a pile of wreckage that’s only just recognizable as a powertrain.

Fires of this sort often quickly engulf the entire vehicle but fire crews were able to extinguish the blaze before it reached the front half. This won’t be much of a consolation to the owner, however, as the supercar is still a complete write-off.

The owner of this GT is well known in the German car scene and owns a plethora of supercars and hypercars from marques like Bugatti, McLaren, Ferrari and Lamborghini. At the time of the fire, the car allegedly had less than 70 km (43 miles) on the clock.

We’ll update this story when details about the incident that caused the GT’s demise come to light.
