The third generation Ford GT will likely go down in history as one of the greatest ever supercar designs to come from an American automaker. It’s impossibly low and wide, and the flying buttresses make aerodynamic efficiency look downright gorgeous. Moray Callum, the chief designer for the project, knocked it out of the park. Funny then, that he is now selling his 2017 Ford GT at Canepa, an exotic and classic car dealership in California. But even though he penned the 640 hp supercar, he rarely drove it, as the Ford GT designer registered just 204 miles on his GT in three years of ownership.
It’s a beautiful spec, too. The GT is painted in Liquid Red Metallic without racing stripes, and has black wheels with grey brake calipers. It’s also got the gloss carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser. Without racing stripes or colored brake calipers, the spec really highlights the sculpture of the car, no doubt on purpose given the previous owner.
Inside, this GT features the “Re-Entry” interior theme, which means black Alcantara with white leather details. It’s understated enough to not stand out against the interior and be purposefully sporty, but still have some excitement with the white touches. Unsurprisingly, it’s in perfect condition, given it hasn’t even completed the 300 mile break in period with just 204 miles on the clock.
But the lack of driving isn’t uncommon for these cars. Rather famously, Ford made all of it’s GT customers promise not to to sell their supercar within 2 years of taking delivery, to some success. Now that the GT has been out for a few years, they’ve been popping up in auctions and for sale, and fetching big money wherever it goes. Canepa doesn’t list a price for Callum’s GT, so interested parties are expected to call with a big, big check. For reference, a Ford GT with a similar 300 miles just sold on Bring a Trailer for $980,000. Other examples have sold for over a million. Given this example’s previous owner, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it go for over seven figures.
Here’s to hoping that the new owner, whoever it may be, decides to drive it more than Callum, because it’s one of the most incredible cars of the modern era. Made for Le Mans just as much as the road, there are few supercars with such racing pedigree. It’s worth more than just an investment.
