Not long ago, we talked about a 2005 Ford GTX1 that was number 13 out of the 100 cars that were produced. That car was white with blue stripes. A similar car is up for auction on Bring A Trailer. This car is a 2006 Ford GTX1 and was #33 produced out of 100. This 2006 Ford GTX1 has been driven a bit with 11,500 miles on the clock.
It’s nice to see that this ride was at least driven a bit in its time. The car had a single owner for its last 13 years with the buyer who owns it now putting it up for sale again. This car is notable because it has no stripes and is in bare Mark IV Red with black leather interior. The car also includes the original order forms from Ford and Genaddi, the latter being the company that converted the original Ford GT to GTX1 form.
Like all 2006 Ford GTX1 cars, this one has a three-piece carbon-fiber roof, and it has a revised engine cover. The black leather-trimmed seats are Sparco unit with silver grommets for ventilation, which was an option in the GTX1 build process. The car still has its factory polished-aluminum trim on the console and doors along with AC, power windows, and a CD player. This car appears to lack the factory Ford GT option of the McIntosh audio system.
The engine is a 5.4-liter DOHC V8 with a Lysholm supercharger and air-to-water intercooler. The engine also has a dry-sump lubrication system, and the transmission is a Ricardo 6-speed manual with a helical limited-slip differential. The receipt shows that the complete conversion cost $43,350 with a convenience package that lists the addition of a cup holder and center console pocket as a $1,100 option. The auction has about a week to go and is up to $225,000 now.
