2018 Ford GT Headlines Barrett-Jackson’s Return To Live Auctions This Fall

Sponsored Links

Thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, most all automotive events, shows, and auctions have been cancelled or held exclusively online. That includes Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas and Palm Beach auctions, both of which were cancelled amid the coronavirus outbreak. But now, the collector car auction house has announced that it will return to live action on October 22nd-24th at WestWorld of Scottsdale, Arizona, and one of the event’s headliners is a 2018 Ford GT.

“Although we were looking forward to our traditional Las Vegas and Palm Beach Auctions this year, after careful consideration we determined that a live auction at WestWorld was an exciting and more feasible alternative,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson.

“At this time, this allows us to better safeguard the health of our guests and team members and gives us the ability to deliver the high-quality experience for which Barrett-Jackson is known. A lot of thought went into the new procedures necessary for this to happen, which we will communicate over the coming weeks.”

Among the most impressive vehicles already lined up for the special auction, this Shadow Black 2018 Ford GT features a Dark Energy interior theme, 20 inch Satin Graphite aluminum wheels, and optional red Sparco racing harnesses, and has only 853 actual miles.

The immaculate machine comes with the original GT ordering kit, transport seat, steering wheel cover, owner’s manuals, battery tender with original box, transmission tool, locking lug nuts, fuel filler, and a Ford GT car cover. All applicable factory recalls have been performed, and the car even comes with a transferable Ford warranty that’s valid until April 14th, 2021.

The simple fact that a new Ford GT is selling at auction is notable, given the fact that early buyers weren’t allowed to part ways with them for 24 months after taking delivery of their cars. WWE superstar John Cena was even sued by the automaker for flipping his GT shortly after acquiring it. After the car sold at auction for a whopping $1.8 million, Mecum Auctions actually reached an agreement to honor Ford’s 2 year rule and not accept any more consignments that violated it.
