Ford GTX1 Crashed Into a Tree in Auburn, Washington

As if the 2005 Ford GT wasn't a rarefied enough breed, the roofless GTX1 is an even more scarce breed of the Blue Oval's legendary supercar. One example of the Ford GTX1 has been unfortunately crashed recently in Seattle metropolitan area suburb Auburn.

The photo above was uploaded on WreckedExotics with a rather simple description: "crashed into a tree, duh." It's too bad the pic isn't revealing how much abuse the tree took from the impact, but the GTX1 is a complete mess. As you can see, it's not far from being worthy to be called an utterly totaled supercar.

Based on the obvious evidence such as the busted front fascia and the damaged rear left wheel, we're dealing with a crash scenario that happened at 40 mph or so (64 km/h). The dry asphalt and sunny weather also leads us to believe that the driver lost the rear end, tank slapping its GTX1 into the purported tree.

Compared to the normal Ford GT, the GTX1 is the product of a company called Genaddi Design Group, which, at the time, charged $38,000 to transform the mid-engined hardtop Detroit brute into a roadster. Production numbers are not available, but believe us that these babies are as rare as hen's teeth.

Genaddi's plan was to build a maximum of 500 GTX1s and a further 100 SEMA Edition vehicles, with the latter duplicating the 2005 SEMA show vehicle. Powered by the same supercharged V8 mill mated to a six-speed stick shift, Genaddi offered Ford GTX1 customers with options such as butterfly doors, performance upgrades, chassis modifications, as well as custom interior and exterior treatments and a trunk option.
