To celebrate the company's centenary they relaunched the car, which would now simply be known as the Ford GT to enormous acclaim in 2005 with input and development coming straight from legendary Texan, Carroll Shelby. The engine is a 5.4litre all aluminium V8 which is dry sumped and develops 550BHP coupled to a 6-speed manual gearbox with a helical limited slip differential. It is ballistically quick covering the 0-60mph dash in 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 205mph.</p><p>Built in limited numbers Ford imported just 101 to Europe which were all converted from American to European spec by Roush Engineering and all were pre-sold, changing hands on the second-hand market for significant premiums over their cost new, both at the time and ever since. In 2006, our vendor very much wanted a car but took the initiative to import one from America and send it straight to Roush Engineering for the same conversion to European spec. As such this car is indistinguishable from an official European spec car.</p><p>It is, therefore, a 'one private owner from new' car that was first registered in June 2006 and has only covered 5,081 careful dry miles from new. Finished in surely the best colour combination of Black with Black leather upholstery and Silver stripes - it really is a stunning looking car in absolutely immaculate condition today - the best Silverstone Auctions has ever had the pleasure of offering for sale.</p><p>Professionally maintained by Roush from new with a full annual service history (including a service in May 2018) and a fresh MOT, the car remains completely standard and original to factory specification with an outstanding and very comprehensive history file detailing every invoice from new. The only factory option is the rare Becker Mexico Audio System in place of the original, which means it retains the stowage bin between the seats rather than the large sub-woofer of the standard unit. Also with the car is the original cover, battery charger and full book pack.</p><p>In summary - the best Ford GT available with a known provenance and history from new and an extremely sensible guide price. Even the special registration X1 FGT (Ford GT) is included in the Sale.</p><p> </p>
