Stunning the world upon its unveiling at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford’s second iteration of the modern GT proved that the company could still produce a world-beating, mid-engined supercar, and Ford intended to prove this to the world in the crucible of motorsports—specifically at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Fitted with a 647-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine mated to a seven-speed Getrag dual-clutch transmission, this meant that the GT could race to 60 mph from a standstill in less than three seconds on the way to a top speed of 216 mph.
Prioritizing low weight and aerodynamic efficiency, the car’s bodywork ingeniously channeled air to its engine and brakes while maximizing downforce. Anchored by Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers and huge 15.5-inch rotors up front, the GT also employed hydraulic power steering, making for a race car that by every account provides feedback to the driver from the very first push of a pedal. Efficient architecture was so prioritized that the sport seats were fixed rather than adjustable, and the pedal box and steering wheel were designed to adjust around the driver rather than vice versa.
Demand for Ford’s newest supercar was (and remains) insatiable; applications outnumbered available chassis allotments by nearly tenfold at the model’s official launch.
Ford implemented a rigid application process, handpicking loyal Ford enthusiasts and mandating that they keep their cars for an extended period. Only 1,350 GT examples are planned through the 2022 model year, with production being handled by Multimatic of Markham, Ontario, Canada. The current GT iteration is a far rarer and more potent offering than previous, with nearly 2,700 fewer examples scheduled than the 2005-2006 GT model.
SERIAL NUMBER K027
This stunning Shadow Black and Silver stripe example offered here, serial number K027, was ordered by the consignor and delivered new to Livermore Ford of Livermore, California on 18 January 2019. The “Launch Control” interior is highlighted by a pair of ebony and orange leather-wrapped carbon fiber seats, matte carbon fiber cabin sills, an ebony Alcantara steering wheel, and matching appointments to the dashboard, instrument panel, and headliner.
In addition to the standard GT features and the 400A Equipment Group, this particular chassis was further specified from the factory with six-point harness anchors, orange brake calipers, the titanium exhaust system, and a set of 20-inch wheels rendered in the Satin Diamond Silver finish—complete with titanium lug nuts. It is accompanied by a serialized car cover in Ford GT-branded bag.
With its breathtaking performance, stunning good looks, and racing pedigree, the newest Ford GT is a must-have for any Blue Oval collector or supercar enthusiast.
