Ford GTs Are Appreciating, Meaning Now Is The Time To Buy!
If you want to buy Ford's most iconic high performance vehicle, then the '06 GT is the car to buy
Positioned between the original Ford GT40, and the new second generation GT supercar, which have been stealing auction headlines over the winter, is the original 2005-2006 GT - which relaunched Ford's legendary design.
The car should’ve been a continuation of the GT40 before naming rights got in the way, but the rear-wheel-drive supercar still proved to be a huge success, and captured the imagination of a new generation of automotive fans. Little over 4000 cars were made in total, and only 541 were delivered in ‘06 with the Tungsten livery, of the kind that appears on this model that is selling at Fort Lauderdale with RM Sotheby’s on March 29-30.

From showroom to now, this GT has only put 4900 miles on its 5.4-liter DOHC V8 engine, which is equipped with a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger, and is capable of 550-horsepower, 500 ft-lbs of torque, a 0-60 mph time of 3.3-seconds, and a 205 mph top speed. These kinds of figures made it a perfect base vehicle for sports car racing, where it won the 2008 European GT3 title, and was a repeat victor in the GT1 World Championship.
Road models had their engine paired to a Ricardo six-speed manual, with a helical limited-slip differential. This particular model can boast to be one of the four-option examples, and features racing stripes, painted brake calipers, forged alloy BBS wheels, an air compressor, and car cover. Other aftermarket additions and original necessities include a Kenwood head unit and McIntosh audio system including speakers. Manuals and a bag also accompany this rare car.
Experts predict this car (identification no. 1FAFP90S96Y401204) to sell for $250,000 - $275,000 (£192,300 - £211,550, €219,000 - €240,900), which, despite being for a car that has only had 13 years to mature in status and appreciate in price, is in line with the sales of other Ford GTs at auction. As market analysts would say: the cheapest time to buy a Ford GT is when it’s new.
