A 2017 Ford GT sold recently at the Mecum Auction in Indianapolis.
Wait! Those cars can’t be sold, right? Apparently, they can. You see, the owner of the car, who paid $450,000 for it, along with Mecum attorneys, went to a judge and won the case against Ford Motor Company. Ford requires that the buyers of these cars must keep them for two years minimally, but the judge disagreed and the car was sold.
The Silver supercar was #48 out of 1000 total to be built, and only had 7 miles on the odometer. The auctioneer assured the crowd that the GT could, in fact, be sold, and declared “this is America” to a rousing cheer from the crowd.
You can watch the GT sell below at 4:26:25 into the video:
With the buyer’s fee, whoever purchased the car had to write a check for $1,810,000.
Ford has made no public comment on the sale, but this is sure to be repeated since, for the first time, we know what price the market will bear.
