One Of The Few UK Delivered 2018 Ford GT Supercars Heads To Auction

Sponsored

There aren’t very many 2018 Ford GT supercars out there, and the majority of them are in the United States. Only a few were delivered to the UK, and the black beauty seen here is one of those cars. The 2018 Ford GT is said to be immaculate, having been delivered on January 12, 2018. That means it’s only a few months past the two-year cut off to allow the car to be sold. Bonhams is estimating that the car will bring as much as $1.1 million at auction.

The auction house is probably right, the cars have been bringing significant money. This particular Ford GT is interesting because it is registered with the registration number “1966 GT.” That’s not its original registration number; it was reregistered when the unique number became available. The car has only 609 miles on the odometer as of writing.

The exterior color is Shadow Black, and it has the matte exposed carbon fiber package that added £15,000 to the purchase price. The interior theme is called Dark Energy, and as you imagine, it’s all-black. Like all other 2018 Ford GT cars, this one has Brembo brakes. It rolls on 20-inch satin graphite wheels with black lug nuts.

Another option the original owner picked was six-point harness anchors, and the car has an indoor car cover in black. The auction includes the original order confirmation, purchase agreement, deposit invoice, and V5C Registration Certificate. As with all other GTs, this one has the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and 647 horsepower 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine. Check out this 2017 Ford GT that is heading to auction that was owned by a former Le Mans winner.

    Yeah it is good GaryB & particularly good when the Chev Corvette is powered by a OHV push-rod 2 valve v8 relic from 1950’s. Now that’s what I’d call embarrassing.!
