How much is a Ford GT worth?
Market | February 4, 2022 Written by Richard Truesdell, Photography by Richard Truesdell In January 2022, More than a dozen of Ford’s “Every day” supercar was available for sale. Here’s how the final sales sorted out, a spread from $364,000 to almost $800,000.
- As some of you know, the 2005-2006 Ford GT and me have a history together.
- In July 2005, I had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to drive one (and a Dodge Viper roadster) from London to Maranello and back in a week, a trip that covered just over 2,500 miles.
- Needless to say, it was the pinnacle of my career as an automotive journalist.
(This will be the subject of a future column here on ShiftGate.) Back in August 2004, when the car was introduced, it carried an MSRP of (just) $139.995 with just four options offered, one being the premium MacIntosh audio system. Most of the cars built included all four of the available options. For 2006, the Heritage Edition was offered in the iconic blue/orange Gulf colors. Production ended on May 31, 2007, at Ford’s plant in Wixom, Michigan. Ever since then, when one of the 4,038 cars built comes up for sale I tend to take notice. Starting at the beginning of 2022, more than a dozen 2005-2006 Ford GTs have come up for sale, starting on some online auction sites, then at Mecum’s Kissimmee event starting in early January 2022, and over the final week in January 2022 at the Arizona auctions. Here’s a review of most of the sales occurring since the start of 2022 by year, mileage, price, date of sale, and sales venue. (It should be noted that often, these cars change ownership below the radar, with the details not being publicly noted.)

Personally, having never actually owned an example of Ford’s All-American, “Everyday” supercar, but having driven the Ford UK press car more miles than many of their long-time owners, and probably more than any journalist in the 2005 to 2006 period. In retrospect, all I can say is what a lost opportunity it was for those owners to have not driven their cars more.
Would an extra 1,000 to 2,000 miles more on the clock impact what they ultimately sold their cars for in 2022? With current-generation Ford GTs now changing hands for seven figures, as a million-dollar 2005-2006 on the immediate horizon? Might it be a 2006 Heritage edition with just delivery mileage, under 25 miles, that will shatter that barrier? Here at ShiftGate, we await the first 2005-2006 Ford GT to list with us. I call this the Ford GT “Fembot” photo. It was taken during the first evening of the 2002 Detroit Auto Show. I was photographing all the cars that had been unveiled on the show’s opening press day Sunday. When I came up upon the Ford GT, J Mays, then Ford’s Vice President of Design, and Chief Designer Camilo Pardo were standing next to the car with a group of models wearing in-period costumes from the 1960s.
I asked J Mays, Camilo Pardo, and the girls to pose for a quick shot. They agreed and here’s the shot that resulted, the only one I took. It’s been bootlegged several times on the web over the years and in two books that I am aware. Looking back, it’s hard for me to believe that this photo is now 20 years old.

Is Ford GT a rare car?
If you prefer the first-generation Ford GT to the second, you’re in luck. Very big luck. A dazzling red-and-white example of the first iteration of the Detroit giant’s retro-inspired supercar was just listed for sale by Sarchione Auto Gallery in Canton, Ohio, according to DuPont Registry,
- While any Ford GT being listed for sale is noteworthy, this 2006 model is especially desirable because of the number on the odometer: 50.
- First unveiled in concept form in 2002, the Ford GT was meant as both a celebration of the brand’s centenary and a tribute to the car that brought it its biggest success on the track—the original Ford GT40.
That’s the car that allowed the American automaker to finally beat Ferrari, won Le Mans four times in a row and inspired a movie you may have heard of, It’s also exceedingly rare, with only 4,038 built during the two years it was in production. A second generation, which is now in its final year of production, was introduced in 2017. Inside the Ford GT Sarchione Auto Gallery Ford really outdid itself with its first supercar. The Ford GT looks remarkably similar to the GT40. Designed Camilo Pardo wisely held on to the racer’s curvaceous body—just look at its long nose, sculpted hood and large rear fenders—though the newer vehicle is bigger, specifically three inches taller.
Despite staying true to the essence of the original, the car—finished in Mark IV Red offset by white racing stripes and Ford decals—feels thoroughly modern, even when compared to its bolder predecessor, This same feeling is maintained inside the car. There’s no giant infotainment screen, like on the second-gen model, but everything is covered in Ebony Black and music comes courtesy of a luxe McIntosh audio system.
Just as beautiful as the exterior is the powerplant that keeps the Ford GT going. Mounted mid-rear is a 5.4-liter supercharged V-8 that is mated to a Ricardo six-speed transaxle manual gearbox that sends power to the the rear axle. It can produce 550 hp and 500 ft lbs of torque, allowing the car to rocket from zero to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 205 mph. 2006 Ford GT Sarchione Auto Gallery Of course, because it doesn’t have any real wear and tear on it, it won’t come cheap. Sarchione Auto Gallery has its Ford GT listed at $685,000, We’re guessing someone will be more than willing to pay that for such a special American speed machine.

Pricing and Which One to Buy – Ford hasn’t released official pricing for the 2022 GT, but we expect the supercar to continue to start at $500,000. Although that means most of us could never afford to own this exotic Ford, it’s still fun to dream and fiddle with the configurator on the consumer site.

Ford to end production of $500,000 GT supercar with special edition DETROIT — will end production of its $500,000 GT supercar later this year with a special edition model paying tribute to the vehicle’s racing heritage. The Detroit automaker on Wednesday said the 2022 Ford GT LM Edition will be the last model of the third-generation car, which was resurrected in 2016 after being a decade out of the market.
- Ford said only 20 of the GT LM Edition cars will be produced.
- Deliveries are scheduled to begin this fall with production wrapping up later this year, according to the automaker.
- As we close this chapter of the road-going Ford GT, the GT LM Edition gave us a chance to inject even more heart and soul from a podium-finishing racecar, furthering the tribute to our 2016 Le Mans win,” Mark Rushbrook, global director of Ford Performance Motorsports, said in a release.
The GT is a collector’s car steeped in racing history. This GT LM Edition pays tribute to the third-generation supercar’s overall win at the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours as well as Ford sweeping the podium to beat Ferrari — as portrayed in — at the famous French race in 1966.
The current-generation GT was a at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Ford kept the car a secret even within the company, only allowing select executives and employees to work on it in a nondescript basement room in a building near its headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan. Only 1,350 of the third-generation GTs — powered by a twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine with 660-horsepower and 216 mph top speed — were produced by supplier and contract manufacturer Multimatic Inc.
of Markham, Ontario, in Canada. A Ford spokesman declined to comment on the possibility of a fourth-generation GT in the future. He also declined to comment on pricing of the latest limited edition model, saying GT pricing has started around $500,000. : Ford to end production of $500,000 GT supercar with special edition

Is Ford GT better than Lamborghini?
On paper, the Ford GT and the Lamborghini Aventador are not that far apart when it comes to horsepower and torque numbers. The GT is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 pumping out 647 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. The Aventador, meanwhile, uses double the cylinder count to generate 690 hp and 507 lb-ft of torque, courtesy of a 6.5-liter V12.
- Very different engines (and different curb weights), but the resulting numbers are just a few dozen horses apart.
- But how will the two fare in a few roll races at the drag strip? The GT posts a very respectable quarter mile time of 10.89 seconds at 132.3 mph before the race itself starts, getting to 60 mph in 3.11 seconds and to 100 mph in 6.42 seconds.
The Lambo, meanwhile, can roar from 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. But this race is more than just about the 0-60 figures: The aim is to find out how the duo matches up a little further down the track, and this is where some other relevant performance factors come into play.
This is where being about a thousand pounds lighter than the Aventador can help the Ford GT. If anything, this clip demonstrates that despite being evenly matched from 0 to 60 mph the two supercars depart in their methods of getting to 100 mph and beyond, with the Avendator being weighed down by that WWII fighter-sourced V12.
There are a lot of lessons here, of course, but “there’s no replacement for displacement” doesn’t seem one of them. Jay Ramey Jay Ramey grew up around very strange European cars, and instead of seeking out something reliable and comfortable for his own personal use he has been drawn to the more adventurous side of the dependability spectrum.

Is a GT a fast car?
What is the Ford GT’s top speed? How fast is the Ford GT? I think they’re so cool, but I’ve never seen one driven before, so I’m curious about how fast they actually are. The GT has a top speed of 216 MPH and can go from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.4 seconds,
These two factors make the GT a street-legal race car that is typically used for racing rather than casual driving. Part of the reason that you rarely see the Ford GT is the price: GTs typically start at $450,000 to $500,000 (MSRP), so they’re not exactly a casual family car. People usually only buy the GT for racing purposes, so the top speed is an important factor in this car’s marketability!

What GT is the fastest?
1/13 Dodge SRT Tomahawk X VGT – Dodge’s Vision Gran Turismo car sets the standard for Vision cars. The SRT Tomahawk X VGT is the most powerful car in the game, producing 2,586 horsepower which is nearly 1,000 horsepower more than the second place Bugatti VGT. This ungodly amount of power is paired with a unique set of aerodynamic panels that emerge from the body of the car to generate extra downforce making it one of the coolest cars in any game,
- When the car reaches 267mph these panels retract, allowing the car’s smooth bodywork to move through the air with little resistance to achieve top speeds over 400mph.
- So while the Red Bull X2014 might be able to match it through the corners, it will be left behind on the straights, crowing the SRT Tomahawk X as the fastest car in the game.

Can a Ford GT go 300 mph?
Under the Hood of the World’s Only 300mph, Standing Mile Ford GT M2K Motorsports made history when their Ford GT made a 300mph standing-mile pass. We go under the hood of this amazing machine and talk power with the team behind the record. Back in early 2014, Mark Heidaker and Kevin Kesterson were putting the finishing touches on their new shop, M2K Motorsports.
- The Fulshear, Texas-based tuning house specializes in potent domestic performance, making them the go-to for regional speed freaks in search of anything from a big turbo kit or fabricated headers to a full-bore drag build.
- The street car scene out here in Houston is pretty crazy,” Kevin explains.
- We build cars that make anywhere from a 1,000 to 2,000 horsepower on a pretty regular basis.” Operating in a car scene where quadruple-digit horsepower numbers are quickly becoming the norm, M2K Motorsports wanted to put together a project that would raise eyebrows even among the power-hungry gearheads of Houston area.
Turns out a 3,000 horsepower Ford GT that can do 300 miles per hour in a standing mile will do the trick. The shop’s current showpiece is Mark’s 2006 Ford GT, a twin turbocharged beast that will handedly blow the doors off of a Bugatti Chiron. The build traces its roots to Kevin’s days at Hennessey Performance.
Back then the car was fairly stock while Mark was still testing the waters at Texas Mile events, and Kevin was working on powertrain development for Hennessey’s special projects like the Venom GT. “I’ve always kind of gravitated toward the high speed stuff,” Kevin tells us. “I get bored fast, so I like having a challenge where I can kind of push the limits.” Kevin notes that switching from the factory computer to a Motec engine management system had profound effect on their program.
Along with the ability to finely control the boost levels, the traction control system dials allows team driver, Patrick O’Gorman, to get on the loud pedal without worrying about potential wheel spin at 200+ mph. Since events like the Texas Mile don’t involve class-based rule sets, the team was more or less free to build the car as they saw fit.
- The only parameters you really have to follow are for the safety equipment,” he adds.
- There are minimum requirements for the cage, tires, and stuff like that, and we tend to go overkill on that stuff anyway.” The team tried out a few different power combinations along the way.
- Early on it was compound boost setup – twin turbos running in conjunction with the stock supercharger,” he recalls.
“At that point we were hitting 210mph-220mph, depending on wind conditions. Then we decided to yank the supercharger and focus on a twin turbo setup, and with that we got to around 235mph. But we reached a plateau, and we were having trouble breaking through that barrier.” Since Texas Mile doesn’t use a class-style rule set structure, M2K Motorsports was free to run wild with different engine combinations in search of more speed.
- They initially tried a compound boost-style setup – a pair of turbos working in conjunction with the factory supercharger – before making the switch to a wholly turbocharged setup.
- That’s when Kesterson decided to reach out to John Mihovetz at Accufab Racing.
- John had a reputation in the Ford community as the Mod motor guru,” he says.
“He knows this platform inside and out, so we asked him to build an engine for us. We ran that built engine with Motec engine management and a pair of Precision 8285 turbos on it, and that combination got us all the way to almost 280 mph. Having the Motec system’s boost control and traction control helped tremendously, and then it was really about turning it up a bit, collecting data, then turning it up a bit more.
It took a while because at these events there are usually about 250 cars participating, so you might only get two runs on a given day. Assuming nothing goes wrong with the car, that’s about five or six runs for the entire weekend. And there isn’t really any other way to do high speed testing like this.” The team used the factory Ford GT six-speed manual gearbox with a twin-disc clutch all the way until they started hitting speeds in the 290s.
To eke out a few more miles per hour, they switched to a PPG gear set. “When we went 293 on the stock stuff we were at about 9200 RPM in fifth gear,” Kevin explains. “Switching over brought the RPMs down to about 9,000 in fifth gear when we made that 300 mph pass.” Kevin notes that this isn’t a situation where you can just crank the boost and see what happens.
“Safety has always been job one – we didn’t want to just suddenly jump the car up 30 or 40 mph, send it down the track, and hope it all went according to plan. Around 270 or so, the car started to get a little sketchy.” While the GT was aerodynamically sound when it rolled out of Ford’s factory, it was never designed to hit the speeds that M2K was now reaching.
“We were on the stock suspension at that point, and we were kind of stalled out at that 270mph range for a while,” Kevin notes. “And that’s when we contacted Scott Ahlman at Ahlman Engineering.” “We were so close,” Kevin says. “We didn’t want to end the weekend with a 299.2, so we brought the car back to the pits and turned up the boost to 50 pounds.
- And that’s what it took.” When it comes to the GT, few can claim to have Scott’s level of expertise.
- He was one of the original suspension engineers for the GT when he was at Ford,” Kevin notes.
- We got in contact with him, and he set us up with some custom four-way Öhlins coilovers.
- That helped us get the stability we needed, and after he worked with us at a few events, we got the car to 281 mph at the Arkansas Mile.
Then we turned up a little bit more and we ended up breaking the motor.” Undeterred, the team put together another 5.4-liter V8. With a stock block, worked-over factory cylinder heads with custom cams, a billet crankshaft, forged connecting rods, custom JE pistons, and a pair of Precision 8685 turbos, the combination makes about 3,000 horsepower by Kesterson’s estimate.
- Stock block and factory heads – it’s kind of insane,” he notes.
- The Öhlins coilovers on the car feature four elements of adjustability: compression, rebound, high-speed bump and slow-speed bump.
- These things are like, 15 grand,” Kevin says with a laugh.
- When Scott told us how much this stuff cost we were kind of shocked, but it made a huge difference in the performance of the car.” With about 50 pounds of boost in the mix and sustained revs north of 9,000 rpm at the big end, putting together a stout bottom end was critical toward M2K’s 300 mph goal.
“We’ve never ever had a piston failure,” Kevin says. “JE built these pistons to John Mihovetz’s spec, and even at 13:1 compression with 50 pounds of boost, we’ve had no issues with them at all.” Back in March of this year, M2K Motorsports took the GT to a Texas Mile event with hopes of surpassing the near-mythic goal of 300 mph.
- They’d hit as high as 293.2 at a previous event so they knew that speed was theoretically attainable, but after hitting 299.2 mph earlier in the day, there was a little bit of concern.
- We hit 293 at 45 pounds of boost, and 299 at 47 pounds,” Kevin says.
- That was a bittersweet run for us – we were stoked to have hit a new personal best, but we also thought that might have been all that was in it.
It was kind of heartbreaking to think that that might have been where we would finish for the weekend, so we decided to turn it up the boost just a little bit more.” The GT’s twin-turbocharged 5.4-liter V8 uses a stock block, thoroughly worked-over factory cylinder heads with custom cams, a billet crankshaft, forged connecting rods, custom-spec JE pistons, and a pair of Precision 8685 turbochargers.
They sent the car back down the track with team driver Patrick O’Gorman behind the wheel and held their breath. “We have data showing that the traction control was working at about 250 mph on that much boost,” Kevin tells us. “We’re using a Hoosier R1 road race tire because it can live at those speeds, but it’s not the stickiest thing out there.” As the car went through the traps, a new personal best lit up the board: 300.4 mph.
“We’re very particular when it comes to safety,” Kevin tells us. “And we’re the same way with our customers – if they’re not down to do the safety stuff, we won’t build them a car.” Now with that milestone in the rear view, Kevin says M2K may be setting their sights on the next project.
“People look at me like I have six heads when I say this, but it’s kind of gotten to the point where it’s probably too dangerous to push this car any further,” he says. “300mph is pretty out there, and looking at the data that we’ve got, we’re pretty close to the car’s limit at this point.” But that doesn’t mean they’re out of the game.
“Right now we’re calling the new car ‘Project X’,” he says. “I think that one might be more of a quarter-mile or half-mile car. But it’s still in the development stages and we’ve got a good recipe, so we’ll see where we are a year from now.” Kevin notes that the Texas Mile’s tire rules were kind of set up around this car.

How much is a 1964 Ford GT worth?
1964 Ford GT40 prototype fetches $7 million at auction A 1964 Ford GT40 prototype has been sold for $7 (€5 / £4.1) million at a Mecum auction in Houston, Texas. One of only two models prepared by Shelby American for the 1965 season, the GT/104 prototype was raced at Le Mans by Jo Schlesser and Richard “Dickie” Atwood but caught on fire and was forced to retire.
The somber story continues from there as the car wasn’t particularly successful on the track. Despite not having the greatest record, the model is an important part of the GT40 legacy and was carefully restored by GT40 specialist Paul Lanzante. Other notable highlights from the auction include an original and unrestored 1967 Corvette Coupe – with just 2,996 miles on the odometer – that went for $725,000 (€525,020 / £433,535) and a 1934 Cadillac Fleetwood V12 All-Weather Phaeton which brought in $165,000 (€119,490 / £98,685).

How much is a Ford GT 1966?
You Need To Be A Multi-Millionaire To Own One – Via: Flickr Ford GT’s are known to be pretty expensive when they hit the market. Seeing as it won so many titles and has an immense history, you won’t be shocked to find out that they sell for just shy of $10 million. Only 31 models were made, so that really explains the exclusive price.
It was difficult to get ahold of at the time of its release. Thus, we cannot even imagine how difficult one would be to find nowadays. If you get lucky, don’t be expecting to pay any less than the $10 million asking price (though one example did sell for $4 million). Owners will likely want to grab hold of them with both hands and not let go for an affordable price.
To summarize, the Ford GT40 was a gob-smacking car in the making. The many reworks were clearly well worth the hassle as it won many awards and is now one of the most expensive GT models of all time.
