Preliminary calculations suggest this pristine 2006 Ford GT will fetch between $300,000 and $350,000 when it goes under the hammer in April 2018. The car is offered without reserve.
“The extremely low-mileage Ford GT is a fantastic fit and a great early highlight for the auction, and one that we are proud to be offering on behalf of its original owner,” Donnie Gould, Car Specialist at RM Sotheby’s Group, comments.
As a quick reminder, the first Ford GT was produced between 2004 and 2006 with a total of 4,038 units sold to customers. Power comes from an all-aluminum 5.4-liter V8 with 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and 500 pound-feet (678 Newton-meters) of torque, channeled to the wheels through a Ricardo six-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential.
