Following a limited-production run and a number of special-edition variants, production of the current-generation Ford GT officially came to a close after the last example was built and delivered just last month. While most of us will never get to drive one of these super-expensive machines – let alone own one – there is a more affordable way to get one’s hands on a piece of this particular supercar – the order kit that buyers received when they were selected to purchase one. Over the past couple of months, we’ve seen not just one, but two Ford GT order kits pop up for sale at auction, and now, a third has surfaced over at Bring a Trailer.
Like all Ford GT order kits, this one comes in a latching carbon-fiber case bearing a Blue Oval logo and GT Design Spec logotype. The latch itself is a pretty unique piece, modeled after the same parts used on the LM GTE-Pro race car that debuted back in 2016, and there’s even space for a reproduction VIN plate if the owner chooses to add one.
Inside, the GT order kit features a removable, sliding door with eight exterior color samples, interchangeable body stripes, five material swatches, and six miniature wheel and brake caliper replicas to help prospective owners choose their preferred combination of those items. The purpose of these items is to give owners the ability to check out different exterior color and stripe options before placing an order for their cars.
For the interior samples, owners could also mix and match materials and themes thanks to swatches made from Alcantara, leather, and carbon-fiber material samples, and the kit even includes a Heritage Edition wheel and collection of swatches, to boot. Overall, it’s a very cool piece of automotive memorabilia, though it likely won’t go cheap given the fact that these items are bringing thousands of dollars at auction these days.
