Buying a GT is much more difficult than putting an ordinary Explorer SUV because you must first get Ford approval to avail the limited edition supercar. If the Blue Oval turned you down, now is your chance to get an example of the mid-engine, low-mileage V6 machine as Mecum Auctions will have one later this month.
Those lucky enough to purchase the GT direct from Ford agreed not to sell the car for the first two years of ownership. With deliveries to customers starting in 2017, this means that more and more supercars are being auctioned or put on sale. Such is the case with this 2018 GT in Frozen White, which will be auctioned off at the special summer event in Kissimmee at the end of August.
This is interesting not only because the odometer shows only 156 km, but also because of the extensive options menu. Do you see the inside of the dark energy? It’s a $ 30,000 option. On the outside, glossy carbon fiber exterior upgrades that complement the white color cost an additional $ 15,000. The original owner also pays $ 15,000 for the 20 inch carbon rims and $ 10,000 for the Akrapovic exhaust system.
Adding just those four elements makes you look almost the equivalent of an optional Shelby Mustang GT500. Needless to say, given the extremely low mileage, the car is in pristine condition and the original owner viewed the Ford GT primarily as an investment. While we argue that cars are meant to be driven rather than garage queens, owners have the right to do whatever they want with their precious possessions.
This owner wants to make a quick profit a little over two years after receiving the GT. While Mecum Auctions has no estimate, several other cars that changed hands after the two-year resale restriction expired reached seven-figure amounts. Even if it doesn’t make $ 1 million, it will likely exceed $ 500,000 plus the tag paid by the original owner.
