Modern classic Ford GT tops Mecum Harrisburg auction
The Mecum Harrisburg auction brought along a few surprises, including a rare Ford GT, a Batmobile replica and two new high performance Dodges
A 2006 Ford GT topped the 2018 Mecum Harrisburg auction, pulling in over $300,000 in a sale that totalled over $24.1 million. There were 763 collector cars that went for sale over the three days, with an impressive sell-through rate of nearly 80 percent.
The Ford GT was one of only 75 released with the Speed Yellow colour scheme, and ended up selling for $302,500 (£234,615). The GT has a 5.4-litre V8 engine which packs over 550bhp and a 6-speed manual gearbox, and is autographed by former racing driver and Saleen founder Steve Saleen.

Other sale highlights included a 4-speed 1967 Shelby GT500 Fastback, which went for $217,250, and a 1978 Lincoln Batmobile Replica. The replica, based on the Lincoln Futura-based Batmobile from the 1960s television series, sold for $195,250 and the screen authentic interior is autographed by Adam West, Bert Ward and Julie Newmar, the actors who played Batman, Robin and Catwoman in the original TV series.
Several other cars sold for over $100,000, most of which were American muscle cars. Two of those were the new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, which was launched earlier this year and packs an astonishing 840bhp in its 6.1-litre supercharged V8 engine. The supercharger capacity is 2.7 litres, which helps it to cover 0-60mph in 2.3 seconds.
Mecum’s next auction will be The Daytime Auction on August 23-25, held in Monterey, California. As of now there are 600 collector cars going to auction, ranging from exotic hypercars and high-end boutique builds to historically significant vintage race cars. Highlights include a 2017 Lamborghini Centenario LP770-4, a 2014 Pagani Huayra, a 2015 McLaren P1, several Ferrari LaFerraris and a 1958 Porsche 550A Spyder.
