If you're reading this, you're probably already familiar with the soaring auction prices of the last-generation Ford GT. Its nostalgic design and limited production numbers make collectors willing to pay way more than the brand-new price. But if a normal Ford GT just won't cut it for your collection, consider this one, formerly owned by Formula One Champion Jenson Button.
The 2005 GT was Ford's first modern supercar. It featured a mid-engine layout, GT40-style roof-door cutouts, and a 550-horsepower 5.4-liter supercharged V8. This particular car is unmodified from new, and has 8350 miles on the clock.
Out of 105 examples sold in Europe, this GT is one of just five units marked with "VIP" by the Ford National Sales Company, according to the . Ford of Britain allocated the car to Jenson in 2005, who took delivery in August. It was then sold to a vendor in 2011, and now it's coming up for sale, with an estimated value of up to £300,000, or $375,000 in American money.
So if a 2.6-mile garage queen isn't the best fit in your collection, this pedigree-laced example might be the one for you.
