The latest Ford GT is such a special car that it regularly goes for more than double what the brand says its MSRP is. Of course, for the fun of owning a new GT, you’ll have to come forward and get the approval of Ford itself. Now, the 2018 model is available with just 120 miles of range sold for $908k.
Ford is so particular about who it will sell the GT to that it includes a no-resale clause that prevents new buyers from flipping it for the first two years. Professional wrestler John Cena was notorious for the poor ending of a lawsuit that Ford brought against him for selling his GT before that time period was up. Both ended up settling down but it shows how difficult it is to please the automaker.
This 2018 model, delivered to its owner through Pat Millliken Ford in Michigan, was for sale on Bring a Trailer and is special for a number of reasons. First, the striking Lightning Blue paint is taken from Ford’s Extension 2 color palette, and according to the brand’s Oval Blue itself, this is the only time the GT has been finished in this color and the Ingot Silver race stripes.
Options include Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, 20-inch aluminum wheels, and matte carbon-fiber outer rims. Inside, the car is equipped with a Light Speed package that includes blue Alcantara mixed with black leather seating surfaces on the Sparco seats.
Other notable GT cars on BaT have sold for over $1 million, but most have more miles than these. For example, an 2019 Carbon Series example sold for $1,240,000.
Like all Ford GTs of this generation, it’s powered by a twin-turbo V6 engine that develops 647 horsepower (482 kW) and 550 pound-feet (744 Nm) of torque. That power is sent through the Getrag’s seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to the rear wheels only.
