Despite our usual preference for vintage vehicles from the 50s, 60s, and 70s at The Status Life, we occasionally find ourselves captivated by more recent automobile offerings like this stunning 2005 Ford GT, which is currently up for sale at the esteemed German luxury car specialists, Schaltkulisse. The iconic Ford GT40 will forever be remembered as one of the most legendary and triumphant American automobiles, achieving victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans for four consecutive years. It was only fitting for Ford to commemorate the pinnacle of its racing heritage with an exceptional model that not only honored the remarkable Ford GT40 but also celebrated 100 years of Ford Motor Company.

Unveiled initially in 2002, the concept GT40 captured attention, leading Ford to commence production of the GT by the close of 2004. Interestingly, each vehicle began its journey in Ohio before being finalized at Ford’s SVT facility in Michigan. The GT boasted an all-aluminum 5.4 liter V8 engine featuring a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger that could generate 550 horsepower, paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Buyers could choose from four available options: painted racing stripes, lightweight BBS wheels, red brake calipers, and the McIntosh stereo system. With just over 4,000 units manufactured worldwide, acquiring one places you in an exclusive league of owners.

This magnificent 2005 Ford GT available at Schaltkulisse showcases an appealing Centennial White exterior with Blue racing stripes, equipped with three of the four available options: stereo, racing stripes, and lightweight BBS wheels. Originally located in Missouri, the car was eventually transferred to its latest owner in New York in March 2012, having only 792 miles on the odometer. Presently, it boasts a mere 2225 miles. While the price tag of €389k may be out of reach for many, enthusiasts with deep pockets and a passion for automotive excellence will find it hard to resist this gem.

Beautifully maintained, this GT received service from Hermann Schuler KG in May 2014 and April 2020, with only 1,971 miles logged at the latter date. At present, the car remains in impeccable condition, nearly indistinguishable from new. Along with the original manuals, invoices, and documents, the sale includes the original car cover. This Ford GT offers a rare chance to own one of the most sought-after vehicles of the past two decades, in near-pristine condition. Whether displayed in a collection or enjoyed periodically, it stands as one of the premier driving experiences of the early 2000s.
