1:75 YELLOW '06, 5,742 ORIG MI, 5.4L SUPERCHARGED, 6 SPD, PREM SOUND, COLLECTOR!
The 2006 Ford GT was a collector car from day one because it gave the car world the iconic GT40 lines wrapped around a supercharged V8 that could back up its race car appearance. So when you can find one in an exceptionally rare color, that's barely averaged 520 miles annually, then you know it's the right cut-above classic.
Owning a Ford GT already makes you a standout, but when you want to be noticed even when you showcase this one with other exotics, there's no better way than Speed Yellow. Not only is it an attention-grabber, but also GT people know this is a rare hue (likely less than 171 ever received the color, only 75 in 2006.) And optional black striping is the exact way to complete a speedy package like this. We all know why we love these Ford GTs. It was Ford finally building one for enthusiasts who wanted to capture that same magic that Ford used to capture LeMans. But building these was a tall order. Engineers and designers had to work together to make sure that iconic silhouette was retained, while every duct fed cold air to competition components, and the body knew how to cheat the wind. This kind of detail means the GT is a hand-assembled supercar worthy of its Ferrari-beating heritage. And this example still lives up to that today, thanks to less than 5,800 miles on the odometer.
Low mileage also means little seat time, and so the interior is just as fresh as the day Ford unleashed this on the world. The GT40 spirit is apparent everywhere inside, too. It starts with those unique doors that help form the roofline – sure it makes it easier to get in and out, but we really know you just love them for how cool they look! Slide into the perforated leather buckets, and it almost feels like a fighter jet as the dash surrounds you. The large tachometer remains the prominently in front, to remind you that this GT comes from a true competition past. Plus, the three-spoke steering wheel, brushed aluminum trim, and retro toggle switches complete the GT40 feeling. But the real trick of the Ford GT is how much modern comfort is provides in this retro cool package. You have ice-cold air conditioning, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, and keyless entry/ignition. There's even the optional AM/FM/CD premium audio system, but we really know you're favorite soundtrack is really produced by the beast that just over your shoulders.
Take a look behind you and you'll see an incredible view of what makes this Ford a true supercar. Peeking in the rear window is a supercharged 5.4-liter V8 that is capable of 550 horsepower and 500 lb/ft of torque. That's enough power to propel this slippery body to 60 mph in about 3.5 seconds, and to an electronically limited top speed of 205 mph. On a car that has been babied all its low mileage life, it should be no surprise that this is the original powerplant, and it has been expertly maintained to perform as good as it looks. That powerful V8 is mated to a manual six-speed Ricardo transmission fitted with a limited-slip differential. As you glance inside that exotic engine bay, you'll noticed the coil over shocks mounted to the formed aluminum frame keeps the 235/45/18 front and 315/40/19 rear Goodyear Eagle F1 tires planted to the track or the road. Large Brembo disc brakes with optional painted four-piston calipers, behind the factory BBS wheels keep things in check, while power steering tosses the nimble chassis around each corner with precise handling.
The Ford GT was built to be a worthy vehicle of the GT40 lineage. But when a low-production performance machine like this, with the options it has, and has also been expertly preserved to be a low mileage time capsule, you can also see the investment value in this rare example. Call now!!
