Car and Driver: Never Unwrapped: Brand-New Gulf Blue 2006 Ford GT Heads to Auction

Recommended Posts



Distraught that you might not be deemed worthy of placing an order for the new Ford GT, of which fewer than 1000 are expected to be built? Relieve your anxiety by heading to the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction, which takes place April 8 to 10, where nothing will stand between you and this awesome 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition—except other bidders, that is.




According to Barrett-Jackson, this Heritage Edition, which is finished in the iconic Gulf blue and orange, is one of 343 built. Like all Ford GTs of this generation, it’s powered by a 540-hp supercharged 5.4-liter V-8, mated to a six-speed manual. This particular example, lot #401, is as close to new as it gets, with just five (5) miles on the odometer, and the interior still wrapped in factory plastic.




Hagerty currently values the Heritage Edition Ford GT at $505,000 in number-one condition, although the classic-car firm’s Jonathan Klinger cautions that, “You can expect that a vehicle like this will have strong interest and [will] very likely sell for an above-market premium.” According to Klinger, the highest price paid for a Heritage Edition Ford GT is $550,000 at Mecum’s 2014 Monterey sale, while the top auction price paid for a second-generation Ford GT is $605,000.




Bidders who get beat out in their quest to take home this particular GT do have another option: lot #426, another Ford GT Heritage Edition, also in Gulf blue. It has 3000 miles, but looks to be spotless. The plastic wrap, however, is long gone.
