The Ford GT is a mid-engine two-seater sports
car. Ford Motor Company produced the Ford GT for the 2003 to 2006 model years.
The designers drew inspiration from Ford's GT40 racing cars of the 1960s. The GT
was produced in model years 2005 and 2006, with the first customers taking
delivery in August 2004. The GT began assembly at Mayflower Vehicle Systems in
Norwalk, Ohio and was painted by Saleen in their Saleen Special Vehicles
facility in Troy, Michigan. The GT is powered by an engine built at Ford's Romeo
Engine Plant in Romeo, Michigan. Installation of the engine and manual
transmission along with interior finishing was handled in the SVT building at
Ford's Wixom, Michigan plant. Of the 4,500 GTs originally planned, approximately
100 were to be exported to Europe, starting in late 2005. An additional 200 were
destined for sale in Canada. Production ended in 2006 without reaching the
planned lot. Approximately 550 were built in 2004, nearly 1,900 in 2005, and
just over 1,600 in 2006, for a grand total of 4,038. The final 11 car bodies
manufactured by Mayflower Vehicle Systems were disassembled, and the frames and
body panels were sold as service parts. As with many exotic vehicles, when the
Ford GT was first released, the demand outpaced supply, and the cars initially
sold for premium prices. The first private sale of Ford's new mid-engine sports
car was completed on August 4, 2004, when former Microsoft executive Jon Shirley
took delivery of his Midnight Blue 2005 Ford GT. Shirley earned the right to
purchase the first production Ford GT (chassis #10) at a charity auction at the
Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Auction after bidding over $557,000. A few
other early cars sold for as much as a US$100,000 premium over the suggested
retail price of $139,995 (Ford increased the MSRP to $149,995 on July 1, 2005).
Optional equipment available included a McIntosh sound system, racing stripes,
painted brake calipers, and forged alloy wheels adding an additional $13,500 to
the MSRP. The production run of 4,038 GTs ended the 2006 model year on September
21, 2006, short of the originally planned 4,500. The Wixom Assembly Plant has
stopped production of all models as of May 31, 2007. Sales of the GT continued
into 2007, from cars held in storage and in dealer inventories.
