2005 Ford GT finished in Blue with White stripes. Just under 1,900 miles from new.
Following a frustrating period of negotiation between Enzo Ferrari and Henry Ford in the 1960s, The American brand decided to build an all-conquering race car, to demolish the prancing horses.
The car that resulted was the GT40; to this day one of the most successful racecars ever produced, with victories at Le Mans four years in a row from 1966-69.
After a concept car was revealed in 2002 of the GT40, Ford decided to build on this attention from media and public and develop a production successor for the GT40, to celebrate the company's 100th anniversary.
With the Ferrari 360 being the benchmark for performance, a small team at Ford set to work to create a car to live up to its fabled name. Powered by a 5.4 litre V8, the car could reach 60 in sub 4 seconds and a top speed of close to 200mph, putting it against some of the fastest supercars of the mid-200s.
Originally priced just above £100,000, Ford GTs have always commanded a premium on their list price, mainly due to their iconic styling and sheer performance. This remains one of the few US exports that has handling attributes to rival any European rival.
The car we are offering is finished in the stunning Blue exterior with White stripes and has covered under 1,900 miles from new. Not only is this possibly the strongest colour combination for the car, but with such low mileage, condition is naturally fantastic.
The Ford GT is not only one of the finest sports cars of the 00s, but it is also a fitting tribute to the GT40 and a real investment prospect for the future, with this example being one of the nicest available.
