The first generation Ford GT was initially created as an homage to those very famous racers of the 1960s. Although visually similar, the designers started with a blank sheet. They were out to create the ultimate Ford supercar—one capable of producing a blistering 550 brake horsepower and top speeds of 330 km/h. Equipped with a mid-mounted 5.4-litre modular V-8 engine topped with twin super chargers, the driver is reminded of the raw power they wield with every glance in the rear-view mirror. Completed with a Ricardo six-speed manual transmission featuring a helical limited-slip differential, the Ford GT is as close as you can get to driving a race car while on the road. Presented here is chassis 400165, offered in Midnight Blu over black, complete with optional white racing stripes, McIntosh radio, and fitted with black brake callipers. It has been driven only 4,607 miles since new.
