2018 Ford GT With Shelby Mustang GT500 Worth Of Options For Sale
Buying a GT is much more difficult than getting behind the wheel of a run-of-the-mill Explorer SUV, as you must first be approved by Ford to claim the limited-edition supercar. If you’ve been turned down by the Blue Oval, now is your chance to claim a low-mileage example of the mid-engined V6 machine, as Mecum Auctions will have one up for grabs later this month.
Those lucky enough to buy the GT directly from Ford agreed not to sell the car for the first two years of ownership. With the start of deliveries to customers in 2017, that means more and more supercars are hitting auction blocks or going on sale. This is the case of this 2018 GT finished in Frozen White which will be auctioned at the end of August at the Kissimmee Summer Special event.
This is interesting not only because the odometer only shows 156 kilometers, but also because of the extensive list of options. See that Dark Energy interior? It’s a $ 30,000 option. On the exterior, the glossy carbon fiber exterior upgrades complementing the white paintwork cost an additional $ 15,000. The original owner also shelled out $ 15,000 for the 20-inch carbon fiber wheels and $ 10,000 for the Akrapovic exhaust system.
Add just those four items and you are looking for almost the equivalent of an optional Shelby Mustang GT500. It goes without saying that the car is in immaculate condition considering the extremely low mileage and it is safe to say that the original owner primarily saw the Ford GT as an investment. While we argue that cars are meant to be driven rather than being garage queens, owners have the right to do whatever they want with their precious possessions.
This owner is looking to make a quick profit a little over two years after taking delivery of the GT. Although Mecum Auctions does not have an estimate, several other cars that changed hands after the two-year resale restriction expired reached seven figures. Even though this one won’t make $ 1 million, chances are it will go way above the $ 500,000 plus sticker paid by the original owner.
