The wonderful Ford GT evokes all manner of motorsport heritage, renewing the renowned styling impact of the cars that dominated Le Mans in the 60’s. Ford recognised that the original design had reached global acclaim and carefully preserved the design cues from the original. However, with road car as opposed to race car success in mind, the manufacturer made up for the shortcomings by giving the car more leg and headroom; as such the car is now more of a ’43’ than a ’40’!
The Gulf livery paintwork retains a sharp lustre throughout and remains in excellent cosmetic order courtesy of a paint protection film ‘PPF’ applied all over.
Preservation of the original concept extends to the cockpit with a considered retro-modern appearance. With both instrumentation and rocker switchgear carried over, as well as the seats maintaining their respective vents, there is a unique tactility and feel to the low slung cabin. The steering wheel, switchgear, transmission tunnel and sill strips free of marks.
The unique vented leather seats exhibit an original fit and finish with no noticeable creases or distortion whilst the brilliant Macintosh sound system offers an alternative option to the monstrous V8; a significant speaker sits pride of place above the armrest.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The unit installed here is a highly specialised version of Ford’s Modular engine. It is an all-aluminum, dry-sump 5.4 L 4-valve DOHC with a Roush Whipple supercharger that showcases numerous technological features such as dual fuel injectors per cylinder and oil squirters for the piston skirts.
Opening the clam shell is a visual treat for any V8 fan, with the engine sat pride of place topped with a huge supercharger primed to force charged air into all 8 cylinders. Surrounded by a lattice network of aluminium space frame – a real work of art.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The BBS lightweight alloy wheels are a simple yet stylish design that perfectly compliment the no nonsense bodywork. Unmarked with a brushed aluminium finish the 18/19 inch wide rims are wrapped in a set of brand new Good Year Eagle S1 tyre’s.
The optional red calipers show in fantastic cosmetic order, completing the colourway of this superb GT, whilst pads and discs are in excellent health.
Manufactured in 2006 this GT was imported and registered in the UK as a new car in March 2006. It has since lived a pampered and spoilt life with significant sums lavished on it.
September 2008 saw a substantial investment in this sublime Ford GT in the form of a Roush Performance upgrade. The mileage at that time amounted to 2,240 miles. Roush Europe, located in Hutton, near London, installed a supercharger upgrade and the necessary software adjustments, as a result, the performance was increased from 550 to 790bhp. All upgrade work and invoicing is included along with power run print outs.
The history file features the book pack with owners guide, the original US bill of sale, Ford authenticity and dating certificate and both sets of keys.
