A stunning 2017 Ford GT will be auctioned off by RM Sotheby’s during the company’s Monterey auctions next week, on August 15-17.
Ford required owners of the latest-generation GT to each sign contracts confirming they would not sell the vehicles for at least two years.
With the (infamous, by now) infamous John Cena car, no new GTs have hit the used car market or auction lots. However, the two-year contract for this GT (and some others) has expired, and its owner is free to do as they please.
The listing states that the owner of this 2017 GT was given one of the very first allocations and received the car on the 5th of August 2017. They chose to have it finished in a one-off color dubbed Beryllium Orange, which cost $30,000, and also opted for black racing stripes and a plethora of exposed carbon fiber parts, including the front splitter, side skirts, and rear diffuser. The exterior was also covered in a paint protection film before it was driven a single mile.
With just 400 miles (643 km) on the clock, it seems apparent that the car’s owner always had the intention of keeping it unblemished and selling it once the two-year no-sales period was up. This could prove to be a very wise financial decision, as the auction house estimates it will sell for between $1.2 million and $1.5 million. If that upper figure is reached, the owner would have banked about $1 million in just 24 months. A hugely successful investment, if we ever saw one.
