Ford’s history with the GT nameplate is a tale of concept cars and production vehicles inspired by racing success.

The GT40 of the 1960s cast a long shadow, influencing both the unproduced GT90 concept and the eventual return of a production GT in 2004.

This first-generation GT, built to celebrate Ford’s centennial, even included a subtle nod to the centennial year on the driver’s side headlight.

Despite missing the exact anniversary by a year, the first-gen GT enjoyed a production run of over 4,000 units.

Debuting at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the second-generation GT took a different approach, prioritizing endurance racing capabilities and achieving class victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

While not as dominant as the four-time Le Mans winner, the GT40, these two GT generations represent a unique chapter in Ford’s supercar legacy. This is further exemplified by the incredibly low mileage examples currently listed for sale, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of both GT eras.

Two ultra-rare Ford GTs are heating the bidding wars on Bring a Trailer, a website for enthusiast car auctions. Both finished in white with eye-catching blue stripes, these Canadian-based mid-engine monsters are generating significant interest.

The 2006 model, boasting a McIntosh sound system and lightweight wheels, carries a documented original price tag of over $166,000 (factoring in inflation, that’s roughly $260,000 today).

Meanwhile, the newer GT reaches an even loftier sum: nearly $700,000, with a staggering $37,300 upgrade package contributing to that hefty price. With the future of a potential third-generation Ford GT uncertain, these two pristine examples are sure to be coveted by collectors.
