A Dealer Is Selling BRAND NEW 2005 Ford GT Supercar. There’s a Ford dealer in Illinois that’s trying to sell a 13-year-old ‘new’ car…for $449,900!
It’s not a leftover Pinto, but a 2005 GT supercar that originally had a sticker price for $156,595 and has never been registered.
The red supercar is at Hawk Ford in St. Charles and has just 4 miles on the odometer. (A listing incorrectly says it has 104, but a salesman confirmed with The Motor Masters that it is in fact 4.) It was sitting in its own space in the showroom when the dealership was purchased by new owners last year.
The car is regularly maintained and is more than likely the lowest-mileage 2005 GT left.
The GT was built and inspired by the automaker’s famous Le Mans racers of the 1960s and built to celebrate Ford’s 100th anniversary. It’s equipped with a 550 HP Supercharged 5.4-liter V8 and has a top speed of 205 MPH. Ford sold 4038 of the supercars during the 2005 and 2006 model years and didn’t make anything like it again until it introduced the all-new GT in 2017.
Prices for the originals have gone through the roof from the excitement surrounding the new car, which starts at $450,000. Ford initially planned to sell just 1,000 of the new carbon-fiber, turbocharged GTs through 2020, but because of the high demand and popularity, it decided to build around 1,350 through 2022 instead.
But purchasing a new GT isn’t as easy as dropping by a dealer and selecting one from the lot. Ford is only allowing customers it deems worthy of owning one, and says it’s been getting seven applications for each build.
However, this 2005 GT can be yours today! As a matter of fact, it’s technically on sale. The dealer has it for sale at $495,000 with a Hawk Ford discount of $41,100 bringing it down to that $449,900.
If you really want to add this BRAND NEW 2005 Ford GT Supercar to your collection, better act fast because this one will go quick!Categories: Auto News, Blog
