It is extremely rare. It sports extreme design. It's got insane output. And is for approved customers only. What is not to like about it? Maybe just the fact that it comes for big money. This one, a Ford GT from the second generation, apparently checks all those boxes. Price, too.
Ford unveiled the second-gen GT at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), and the car entered production at the Multimac's low-volume assembly facility in Markham, Ontario, in Canada, in December 2016. Ford was selling it for $375,500.

$1.7 million. That is how much Ford is charging now for the GT Mk IV. Client selections are yet to be confirmed, and deliveries will start in the spring of 2024. Only 67 such track-only cars will be built to honor the 1967 Le Mans winner.

The Ford GT, the street-legal version, is not something that you see every day. But every once in a while, one example shows up on the used car market. "Used car" is not exactly accurate when it comes to such models. Since they are collectors' cars, they tend to remain with very low mileage. And people are queuing to get one. Ar at least to browse through the photo gallery online and stare at the photos for hours.

Stare is what we have been doing as well since the moment we came across this 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series Edition. And many others are probably doing just that. We'll tell you why a bit later. But before that, you must learn a bit about this car right here.

It is one that the current seller, a dealership, bought just earlier this year. They only drove for 50 miles (80 kilometers), with the digital odometer now displaying 3,300 miles (5,311 kilometers).

The 2019 Ford GT is painted in a color that comes for the price of an entry-level Mustang

The car is painted in Heritage Blue. Why is that shade special? Because back in 2019, it was a $30,000 option. The model also got the Carbon Series Package for an extra $70,000, as well as the $15,000 Carbon Graphics Package. So we're looking at a total of more than $100,000 in options. It will surely pay off.

That Carbon Series Package makes the car some 40 pounds lighter than the stock version and brings along exposed carbon fiber stripes, an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, a polycarbonate engine cover, and 20-inch gloss carbon fiber wheels with 245/35 tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires at the front and 325/30 at the rear.

A clear paint protection film covers the entire body. The car sports LED headlights and taillights, a lightweight Gorilla windshield, a retractable active rear wing, and an aggressively designed rear diffuser.

Never mind that head-turning $30,000 color, but do you really think you can pop those butterfly doors open at the gas station without everyone staring at you? Not in a million years!

The cabin is wrapped in black Alcantara that covers the multi-function steering wheel with flat bottom and upper sections and paddle shifters, as well as the Sparco seats with manually reclining carbon fiber shells. Exposed carbon fiber shows up just about everywhere else, on the door sills, dashboard, and center console.

Is this 2019 Ford GT a $1 million car in 2023?

The GT is powered by an upgraded version of the mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, that now delivers 647 horsepower (656 PS) and 550 pound-feet (881 Nm) of torque. A Getrag-sourced seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission has to deal with all these numbers in real life, while orange-painted Bremo six-piston mono block calipers with carbon-ceramic discs on the front axle and four-piston calipers at the rear handle braking.

Variable ride height, a front-axle lift system, selectable driving modes, and launch control come standard on the Ford GT.

When we mentioned browsing through the photo gallery and staring at the pictures just like many others, this is what we actually meant. With less than two days left to the end of the auction, it is not surprising at all that bidding has already hit $825,000 on Bring a Trailer. And counting.

The car is now offered on dealer consignment at no reserve. Price includes the manufacturer's literature and all the accessory, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Ohio title, following a registration in California as well. We will keep you posted. We are just as curious as you are to see if this Ford GT hits the $1 million mark.

But things have been changing lately. A 2006 Ford GT Heritage Edition sold for $695,000 at an online auction on Bring a Trailer. Another example sold at $760,000 on the same auction website in the spring of 2022. That one had only 33 miles (53 kilometers) on the odometer.
