One of just 101 GTs delivered to Europe and one of just 26 delivered to Switzerland
Only one registered owner since 2006 and just 12,600 miles from new
Ford’s modern classic – an instant collectible
Built to celebrate Ford’s 100th anniversary, the GT takes visual cues from the iconic GT40. With performance provided by a 550-bhp, 5.4-liter supercharged V-8, a top speed of 205 mph and a 0–60 mph time of 3.3 seconds, it was a very close rival to the Porsche Carrera GT and Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Of the 101 Ford GTs delivered to Europe, this is one of 26 delivered to Switzerland and has remained in the care of just one registered owner since 2006. The Ford GT was offered with just four options, and many were specified with all of them. This car, however, did without the frequently seen BBS wheels, painted callipers, racing stripes and McIntosh stereo, making it exceptionally rare in this specification.
It has since been fitted with a much more aesthetically pleasing rear bumper by Capricorn, the company that helped import those 101 Ford GTs to Europe. This has the effect of slimming down the rear of the car and emphasising its kamm-style tail, and is accompanied by the original unit which can be refitted easily. The Ford GT has aged exceptionally well and is one of the most exciting and desirable cars ever built by Ford.
