For Sale: 2005 Ford GT in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

The Ford GT was a collector car from day one because it gave the car world the iconic GT40 design, wrapped around a high-powered modern engine, an incredibly sporty suspension, along with the benefits of a comfortable, luxurious interior. These beauties all came with supercharged V8s that could back up the race car appearance, but this INSANE one-of-a-kind 2005 Ford GT features a neck breaking, 840HP twin-turbo conversion that cost over $60k to design and install. The result is sinister-looking black-on-black, twin-turbo powered, 44-inch tall monster that is arguably the most impressive GT on the market. Take a closer look and do it fast, because exotic cars that are this pedigreed and this perfectly upgraded never last long, regardless of the price tag. It simply doesn't get more special than this.


Owning a Ford GT already makes you a standout, but when you want to be noticed even when you showcase this one with other exotics, there's no better way than with sinister black paint. In fact, the color is called Mark II Black, because this car has the livery of the MkII GT40 that won the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans. So you really do have a fitting 40th anniversary tribute to one of Ford's greatest victories, and because it was factory-ordered as a stripe delete car, this GT is ready to beat up Lambos and Ferraris both on the race track and at the beauty pageant. It's so darn pretty only explicit language can fully describe this car's sexy styling and dynamic lines, so we'll let our readers use their own imaginations. And while all Ford GTs are rare, this exceptionally slick example is only one of 238 finished in this legendary color combo, and likely way less with the stripe delete option. And this car is more than just about looks. Ford finally built one for enthusiasts who wanted to capture that same magic that Ford used to capture Le Mans. But building these was a tall order, quite literally, as four inches had to be added to these models, compared the original height of the GT40s, hence the name. Engineers and designers had to work together to make sure that iconic silhouette was retained, while every duct fed cold air to competition-grade components. And then they wrapped it in a body that knew how to cheat the wind. This kind of detail means the GT is a hand-assembled supercar worthy of its Ferrari-beating heritage. And this example still lives up to that today, thanks to a careful life with less than 4,237 miles on the odometer.


The GT40 spirit is apparent everywhere inside, too. It starts with those unique doors that help form the roofline - sure it makes it easier to get in and out, but we really know you just love them for how cool they look! Low mileage also means little seat time, and so it all feels fresh. Slide into the sculpted perforated leather buckets, and it almost feels like a fighter jet as the dash surrounds you. The large tachometer remains prominently in front to remind the driver that this GT comes from a true competition past, and the sporty three-spoke steering wheel, brushed aluminum trim throughout, and retro toggle switches complete the GT40 feeling. But the real trick of the Ford GT is how much modern comfort it provides in this retro cool package. You have ice-cold air conditioning, power steering, power windows, power locks, dual airbags, an upgraded anti-theft system, and keyless entry/ignition with a push-button start. There's even the optional Mcintosh AM/FM/CD premium audio system that's an additional $4k on the window sticker, but regardless of the sound hardware, we really know your favorite soundtrack will be produced by the beast that's just over your shoulders.


Take a look behind you, and you'll see an incredible view of what makes this Ford a true supercar. The Twin-Turbo 5.4-liter fuel-injected V8 is on full view, and it's capable of 840 horsepower and 720 lb/ft of torque according to the Dyno. That's enough power to propel this coupe to 60 mph in less than 3 seconds, and then on to a top speed that's over that factory-rated 205 mph that was limited by an electronic governor. Top-of-the-line performance hardware includes twin Garrett GT35-R dual-ball bearing turbos, an Accufab monoblade throttle blade, a custom aluminum intake manifold, and a full stainless exhaust from the turbos on back - all of which were installed and tuned perfectly by the pros at Underground Racing in Charlotte, NC to the tune of $60k. And my goodness is she running strong. That powerful V8 is mated to a six-speed Ricardo manual transmission that shift smoothly, applying power up and down the throttle. As you glance inside that exotic engine bay, you'll notice the coilover shocks mounted to the formed aluminum frame keeps the large 335/30/20 rear Michelin Pilot tires planted to the track or the road. Large Brembo disc brakes behind each shiny HRE wheel continues this exceptional modern handling package, and the slightly raked stance is due to the staggered wheels that include a 265/35/19 Michelin tire up front.


Complete with owner's manual packet, original sticker, build receipts, and Dyno paperwork, this is the rare supercar that does a terrific job celebrating an exceptional heritage. Don't let an exceptional modern classic slip away, call today!
