136140 / 2006 Ford GT


1 of only 75 2006 Ford GTs sprayed in Speed Yellow, this registry-listed coupe wraps a 550 horsepower, all-American V8 in world-class engineering! A fitting follow-up to the original GT40, this incredible GT utilizes a lightweight, all-aluminum body that optimizes aerodynamics to the tune of 3.3-second 0-60 sprints and an electronically limited top speed of 205 MPH. That body reflects a clean CarFax report with the help of racy Speed Yellow paint, standard GT side stripes and optional painted racing stripes. And that vivid 2-stage is augmented with HID headlamps, halogen fog lights and requisite body-matched mirrors. Under the bonnet, Ford’s 5.4 liter V8 spins a Lysholm twin-screw supercharger to twist 550 horsepower into 500 lb./ft. of torque, straight from the factory. That last statement was qualified with “straight from the factory” because this sunny coupe benefits from a Ford Racing power upgrade kit that includes a better pulley and more precise engine tuning. That added power nicely motivates a Ricardo 6-speed transaxle, which wears a Ford Racing cooler, a fresh flywheel and a high performance Stillen clutch. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops come courtesy of red Brembo calipers. The big engine roars through sweet Heffner cat-back exhaust. And all that track-ready prowess rolls on 1-piece BBS alloys and Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercars. Step over this GT’s “Ford” branded sills and you’ll find lightweight carbon fiber buckets that stretch plush leather trim under retro aluminum grommets. In front of those seats, clean telemetry complements retro switches and optional McIntosh audio. At the bottom of that dash, clean carpet frames an upgraded Ford Racing shifter. And in front of the driver, a leather-wrapped steering wheel laps a tilting and telescoping column. This storied Dearborn super star is an impressive, track-capable investment that’s highly exclusive and scary fast! Call, click or visit www.RKMotors.com for more information.
