Most of us would give just about anything to own a Ford GT, let alone one currently in the stable of a famous IndyCar driver like Graham Rahal. And now, one lucky person is going to get that very chance, albeit at a not-so-discounted price, because Rahal has listed his personal Ford GT for sale on his website.
We’d argue that any Ford GT is special, but this particular example is certainly a one-of-one. That’s because it’s painted a very unique shade called Deep Purple, with Ingot Silver stripes to break up that Barney-like exterior hue. Rahal notes that the car has been turning heads since it was built, and we certainly can’t imagine he’s lying about that.
The unique Ford GT sits on 20 inch gloss carbon fiber wheels with titanium lug nuts, and features The Blue Oval’s Dark Energy interior upgrade that features a host of Ebony Alcantara-wrapped bits including the steering wheel, carbon fiber seats, instrument panel, pillars, headliner, door sills, air register pods, and center console, along with Matte Dark stainless appliques on the instrument panel and seat X-brace.
The car has just 1,210 miles on the clock, so it’s essentially brand new, though we imagine that Rahal has ripped it on more than one occasion. Thankfully for the next owner, at least he know’s what he’s doing. After all, we are talking about a guy who drives much faster machines around tracks for a living.
The only problem with this car, other than the fact that some folks may not appreciate the purple hue, is that it isn’t going to be cheap to obtain. The asking price is a cool $1,095,000, though that’s pretty much par for the course for a second-gen Ford GT these days. Add in the fact that this one has a famous first owner, and that only helps justify the sky-high price tag.
