A NASCAR Racer’s 2017 Ford GT Heritage Edition Is Up for Sale

The people who were lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase a 2017 Ford GT have done very well with their investments. Many of the vehicles are selling for nearly twice the MSRP. The 2017 Ford GT Heritage edition seen in these images belongs to NASCAR racer Brad Keselowski. Being the ’66 Heritage Edition, the car wears black paint with white stripes and a white “2” on the door.

The car has only 18 miles on it, and from the images it appears that the tags inside the car were never removed, so it still looks brand-new. This car was one of only 138 Ford GTs assembled in 2017 and one of 1350 assembled in total. Like all Ford GTs, the 2017 Ford GT Heritage Edition has a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine that makes 647 horsepower and 550 pound-feet of torque. Power goes to the road via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters.

The car features air conditioning, hydraulic power steering, Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes all around, and fully adjustable hydraulic suspension. The fancy suspension has two inches of variability to make it easier to get in and out of parking lots and lower the car for high-speed work. Inside the car has black leather interior and is fitted with the optional six-point harness anchors.

The black paint has been 100 percent clear wrapped to prevent any scratches, and the car rolls on 20-inch forged wheels with the optional titanium lug nuts. Keselowski also optioned the car with the Akrapovic titanium exhaust. Whoever buys the car will also get the original Ford GT order kit, original production order, original window sticker, and two key fobs. The company is accepting offers for the vehicle and last October a different 2017 Heritage Edition crossed the auction block and sold for over $1.5 million. We wonder if having a celebrity first owner adds to the value of this car.

    So, only 18 miles on it. Why not drive it? The gas has most likely gone bad in it. Tires dry rotted, etc. The more a vehicle sits, the more goes wrong with it.

    What a waste of a spot on the list. The whole list is supposed to be of people that will use them and get them on social media. Brads going to make another Million dollars. In fairness to him tho, he has started an expensive company and probably needs working capital so it’s not going to sit in a trust fund.
