The Ford GT of both the first and second generations are some of the most desirable sports cars on the planet. The second-gen Ford GT with its EcoBoost V6 may be faster, but the 5.4-liter supercharged DOHC V8 tucked inside the 2006 Ford GT makes a sound the new GT can’t match. RM Sotheby’s has a 2006 Ford GT that is essentially brand new that it will be auctioning off. The car is a 2006 model that has only 11.7-miles on the odometer since it was new.
The mileage is so low that we can’t help but wonder if the original owner ever drove it. 11.7-miles on the odometer may be milage put on it at the factory and during transport. The 2006 Ford GT offered only four options and this car, chassis number 1FAFP90S96Y400599, has all four of them. The options include painted stripes, red-painted brake calipers, forged BBS alloy wheels, and the upgraded McIntosh radio.
Of the 2,011 2006 Ford GT cars made, only 327 of them are finished in the Mark IV Red color with full stripes. This car was purchased new at Planet Ford in Texas and immediately stored. It comes with the window sticker, certificate of authenticity, manuals, air compressor, and car cover within its bag.
RM Sotheby’s is auctioning the 2006 Ford GT with no reserve. The car is expected to bring between $280,000 and $340,000. The Ford GT is one of the few cars that has never sold for below its original sticker price. Many consider the 2006 Ford GT to be the last of the analog supercars. RM Sotherby’s has a note on the auction for the car that it has an open recall for the airbags, and the auction house will work with the buyer to get that addressed before delivery.
