The GT40 is one of the greatest race car dynasties of all time, and the current generation Ford GT is the latest heir to that legacy. The latest car is a technological tour de force that also delivers face-melting performance and has been tremendously collectible from the outset. Introduced to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the most extraordinary racing achievements ever (the first Le Mans victory of the GT40 in 1966 over Ferrari), the car was developed as a road car with an eye toward racing. And race it did, making its competition debut during the 2016 season, where it finished first and third in the LM GTE Pro class at Le Mans.
The specifications of the car speak to its extraordinary performance focus and innovative technical content. It is centered around a carbon fiber monocoque, with light alloy subframes to which the pushrod suspension mounts. The bodywork is carbon fiber and neatly blends the aesthetic of the original GT40 with a cutting edge contemporary look, particularly at the back, where massive channels direct air between the cockpit and separate pods housing the rear wheels. These serve to direct air over (and under) the rear wing, contributing to downforce at the rear axle. The car is motivated by a twin-turbocharged dry-sump V6 which produces 647hp, backed by a 7-speed dual clutch Getrag gearbox, which together provide 0-60 mph in 2.9 seconds, a particularly impressive feat for a rear wheel drive car.
This particular GT is a one-owner car which was ordered in December of 2019 and has covered just 25 miles from new. It is extremely complete and is equipped with titanium lug nuts, titanium exhaust, Alcantara steering wheel, 6-point harnesses, matte carbon fiber exterior package, matte carbon fiber wheels, red brake calipers, and carbon red graphics package. It comes with two window stickers, original order documents, photos of the car taken during its construction, original purchase invoice, carbon fiber configuration specification presentation box with paint samples, fabric swatches, battery charger, invoice for the full clear bra installation, and various other documents.
