One very, very careful owner: as-new GT comes up for auction, yours for $300-$350k
Used cars are a minefield. You scroll through the spec: car looks tidy, it’s got a service history, it’s even in your favourite colour. And then the penny drops – it’s done four million miles. Heart sinks.
Here’s one that’ll sink your heart for entirely different reasons. It has no service history. It’s cripplingly expensive. And it’s only got two seats. Ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present your new dream machine: a 2006 Ford GT with just ten miles on the clock.
Well, 10.8 miles, if we’re being picky. It’s the first lot to be revealed at RM Sotheby’s Fort Lauderdale sale, which kicks off in April next year. A bit of time to scrounge together the estimated $300,000-$350,000 estimate, then.
Scrounge up the money you should, however, because the GT is a bit of a gem. This one – chassis number 401960 – is finished in white and features three of the four available options at the time.
Option one: those lovely BBS forged alloys. Option two: red brake calipers. Option three: those all-important blue racing stripes, which – when in conversation with friends or random people you’ve never met in a public house – allows you to add at least 500bhp to its power output. Possibly.
