Owner's manual autographed by the designer of the 2005-2006 Ford GT, Camilo Pardo


In 2002, Ford unveiled a GT40 concept car—penned by Camilo Pardo under head of styling J. Mays—that was a modern-day interpretation of the famed GT40 race cars that brought Ford multiple victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 1960s. This race car for the streets was so well received by the press and public that Ford soon green-lighted plans to build a limited production run to be offered for sale, starting in 2005.

Due to ownership issues with the “GT40” name, the production cars were simply known as the Ford GT. While visually very reminiscent of the 1960s Le Mans winners, in fact, the Ford GT was wider and taller than its forbearer. However, under the skin, the Ford GT was bristling with advanced technology and a rolling marvel of high-tech manufacturing techniques. The Ford GT’s aluminum-alloy frame was constructed using an advanced extrusion process known as super-plastic forming, while its floor panels were roll-bonded and its central tunnel section friction-stir welded. Clothed in aluminum and carbon fiber panels, under the rear decklid sat a supercharged 5.4L DOHC aluminum-alloy Modular V-8 engine that booted 550 HP and 500 lb-ft of torque through a Ricardo 6-speed transmission that could propel the Ford GT from 0-60 MPH in just 3.3 seconds, and a top speed of 205 MPH.

The example on offer is a fully optioned 2005 Ford GT with just 1,590 miles on the odometer. This GT is finished in Tungsten paint with contrasting racing stripes and an Ebony interior. Equipped with BBS forged wheels, this stunning, low-mileage, American-built supercar also boasts leather-trimmed seats with carbon fiber substructure, air conditioning, stainless dual exhaust and Brembo ventilated disc brakes.
