    Background on the latest iteration of the Ford GT:

    In 1901, automotive engineer Henry Ford and his 26-horsepower car “Sweepstakes” famously won a Detroit-area race against local favorite Alexander Winton in his 70-horsepower “Bullet,” a testament to the lightness & reliability of the car Ford had created. His win would attract the publicity and investors that allowed him to start the Ford Motor Company less than two years later in 1903.

    Over a century later, in 2014, Ford quietly developed a twin-turbocharged V6 unit for prototype class racing, pushing it to an eventual win at the 2015 Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona. The engine took advantage of similar benefits to the V6 power units recently introduced in Formula 1 at the time, including better packaging, weight, & fuel efficiency versus the larger engines previously used. The spirit of this engine evoked that used by Henry Ford in his original racing car - a focus on innovative engineering over traditional thinking.

    Casual observers believed Ford was simply experimenting with a new racing engine, but the company had bigger plans ahead. The ultimate use for the engine was revealed to be a new purpose-built Ford GT race car, which would have the incredible task of a return to Le Mans to recapture the glory of Ford’s 1966 Ferrari-beating 1-2-3 finish, 50 years later to the day in 2016.

    Amazingly, they succeeded in achieving their objective, beating Ferrari once more for a 1st place class win and writing one of the great sports car & racing stories of all time!

    The road-legal variant of the Le Mans-winning Ford GT was developed alongside the race version, borne as a required homologation effort and additionally as a gift to the Ford faithful, with only 1,350 total units planned. Completion of said production run is on-schedule to end in just a few months’ time, all allocations having been sold out. Built by Ford affiliate Multimatic, who are essentially to Ford what Michelotto is to Ferrari, each new Ford GT is hand-built to order. The car on offer here is a stunningly handsome celebrity-owned example of this incredible racecar turned Supercar.

    The Ford GT on offer:

    Ford GT serial no. H074 and VIN number 2FAGP9CW3HH200074 was specified new by Tim Allen and delivered to him via Galpin Ford in North Hills, CA.

    Tim Allen sold this Ford GT in October 2021 at 671 miles to the current (2nd) owner, and it is presented here in excellent near-new condition at 739 miles from new.

    H074 was built to an understated no-stripe specification, with a total MSRP of $485,500.00. Options applied to this GT are summarized as follows:

    • Exterior carbon fiber package in gloss finish at $15,000 cost.
    • Lightweight carbon fiber wheels in gloss finish at $15,000 cost.
    • Brake calipers in Blue at $1,000 cost.
    • Indoor car cover in black at $750 cost.

    The Ford GT is the only current Supercar that can lay claim to not only being truly hand-built, but to being directly based on a Le Mans-winning racecar. Modern Supercars with such iconic racing heritage as the ‘17+ Ford GT are few and far between, cementing the car as a certain future collectible classic.

    Not a quick flip in terms of intention, owner is very reasonable on expectations and simply wants to move on to the next thing. He also has multiple Ford GTs, so selling this very special example doesn't leave him without the opportunity to drive one.

    This isn't at all uncommon in today's market, meanwhile all those who missed out on it on BAT last year have another opportunity to own it, as does everyone else.

    Yep. We have a word for someone who buys something he already has multiples of, holds it for a short period of time, then sells it. Can you tell us what that word is?

    Astute.

    They really do, as a well-known designer told me, silver highlights a sports car's lines to maximum effect and that's reason so many sports cars have been debuted in that color, in it's Ingot Silver livery H074 is simply stunning.

    I really don't understand why people get upset when a car becomes available again in a short period of time. If you want it buy it, it's in the public domain. You could have bought it then, or you can buy it now.

    Not sure if upset is the word but people certainly get annoyed because it’s the rampant speculation and froth injected into the market by those with their hand out in every transaction that divert cars from garages or guys who would enjoy and share them into savings account garages for “investment”. I would submit these “investors” also skew demand with their participation in the market which directly impacts prices and generally makes things less stable than they otherwise would be.

    Very valid points.

    For our part we do wish the cars we bring to the market could go to end-user enthusiasts who are long-term keepers, but unfortunately today's market has evolved to be a mix of investors and enthusiasts, in fact in some instances they are one and the same, meanwhile as JJ sums it up perfectly, it is what it is.

    If I had to guess, any negativity is a remnant of the '80-90s bubble, where speculators drove natural buyers almost completely out of the market. At least, until it collapsed. I was too young to be affected, but I wouldn't be surprised if some scars remain. It's not your job to police the market. Your job is to source and accurately represent the most interesting cars you can and bring the most value you can to your clients. The rest is up to us.

    FWIW, people don't raise eyebrows unless there's interest. So, there's that.

    Did this model come with a tow package? Not familiar with the car.

    Without giving too much away, quoting myself above with emphasis again to highlight why this is definitely not a sale by an 'investor' in this case, or any other version of that word! Some people just like to have a rotating collection.

    Excited to get the bidding started.
