Someone Made Nearly $ 400,000 Profit On Immaculate 2019 Ford GT
While low-mileage examples of the Ford GT fetching over $ 1 million at auction are not uncommon, this 2019 model offered by Bring a trailer caught our eye because of its cool specs and immaculate condition.
With an original price of $ 612,695 and only 506 miles on the odometer, this Ford GT sold for $ 1,010,000, bringing its owner a profit of $ 397,305 (before all expenses).
Even though it was launched in 2015, the Ford GT still looks amazing today, with its low stance and flying buttresses set it apart from the crowd.

In this particular example, the matte black exterior with overlapping alloy stripes was a special order ($ 40,000), a perfect match for the matte carbon fiber exterior trim and the amazing 20 inch carbon fiber rims that were an option of $ 15,000. Behind them can be seen the huge carbon-ceramic brakes (15.5 inches at the front and 14.1 inches at the rear) with orange painted brake calipers. In total, the original purchaser paid $ 117,445 in markups on top of the base MSRP of $ 491,500.
As you open the gullwing doors you will come across a combination of black and orange upholstery (Launch Control package) and, of course, the exposed carbon fiber tub. The dashboard with its simple design and digital cockpit looks fresh, although some people may find the color contrast too flashy for their liking. The driver’s seat may be fixed, but the pedals and steering column are adjustable, so the new owner can find their perfect place behind the Alcantara-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with integrated paddles.
The twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 produces 647 hp (482 kW / 655 hp) and 550 lb-ft (746 Nm) of torque which is transmitted to the rear axle via Getrag’s dual-clutch gearbox . There’s also a hydraulically adjustable pushrod suspension, active rear spoiler, titanium exhaust, launch control, and selectable ride modes as standard. The GT is capable of accelerating from 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km / h) in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 216 mph (347 km / h).
The car was bought new in Montana and has a California title of its own. The new owner also received the original window sticker, accessories, photos of the construction, car covers, promotional material and two keys.
While like all used Ford GT models this one commanded a significant premium, the unique color combination and virtually untouched interior make us dream of this particular example. Hopefully the new owner will take the opportunity to enjoy it on the road and not keep it locked up like a garage queen.
