Tired Of Waiting For A Ford GT? One Is Going Up For Auction Next Month

Ford hasn’t been shy about suing customers and companies that sell GTs, but the automaker has given its blessing to auction “one of the last public allocations” for the supercar.

The model will be up for grabs at the 25th anniversary gala for the Petersen Automotive Museum on October 5th and the auction will be conducted with the help of RM Sotheby’s.

However, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill GT as the winning bidder will be able to order the car in any trim including the Carbon Series and the sold out Heritage Edition. The winner will also have the option of selecting which model year they want including choices between 2020 and 2022.

Of course, things aren’t entirely straight forward as the winning bidder must meet “eligibility requirements determined by Ford.” The allocation also cannot be transferred as Ford is picky about its customers and the potential that the car could be bought by someone who intends to flip it.

The proceeds from the auction will benefit the Petersen Automotive Museum Foundation which is a non-profit charity that provides STEAM-based education and programs to more than 100,000 children and teens each year. The funds also support the iconic museum which houses an impressive collection of over 300 vehicles.

While Ford rarely signs off on GT auctions, this is somewhat of a special occasion as the gala will honor the automaker and the Ford family. The event will even be attended by Ford executive chairman Bill Ford, who will accept the honor on behalf of the entire Ford family.

    Sounds like a good cause, but I think it’s ridiculous to still have “eligibility requirements determined by Ford”. If someone is willing to pay for a cause you deemed worthy, give them the damn car!

    Soon the New Corvette solve this problem…

      Considering the huge price difference I don’t think people are cross shopping the two. If I had the money I’d go with the beautiful Ford GT over the Corvette easily.
