    Most Expensive Ford GT You May Never Want to Drive. Now for Sale on eBay
    [​IMG]
    In the realm of valuable vintage cars, the ones that seem to command the most money are either the ones that have zero or close to zero miles, or the ones that have been driven to hell and back, preferably in some famous races, and then left untouched in a barn for 40 years. What we came across today on eBay Motors is a prime example of the former: a 2006 Ford GT that its seller—BJ Motors (no comment) of Tomball, Texas—claims has the lowest mileage of any Ford GT, with just 11.1 miles showing on the odometer.

    We can’t verify that claim for ourselves, and nor can we vouch for the dealership’s assertion that it was “Canadian built” (all 2005–2006 Ford GTs were produced in Michigan), but after perusing nearly 60 pictures of the car, we can say that it looks as if it came off the line, like, yesterday. It also appears that BJ Motors has lots of other cool steeds in its stable, which appear—not accidentally, we’re sure—in the background of the GT’s pictorial.

    Offered at a relatively steep “Buy It Now” price of $529,995, the GT is rendered in the classic Heritage Blue/Epic Orange Gulf livery, famously worn by the original Ford GT40 race cars in the 1960s, with a black leather interior. No word on whether it has had its Takata airbag replaced yet per the recall notice that just went out last month.

    That likely won’t matter a whole lot, since we can’t imagine that the car will be driven very far by the new owner. After all, the extremely low mileage is what pushes the price of this GT to more than half a mil, for a car that commonly trades in the $200K–$300K range. And in a way, that’s too bad, since we love to see cars like this in their most exciting state: in motion. Preferably fast.[​IMG]

    last color combo id pick

    i wouldnt want it just for the color combo

    also not a fan of having racing #'s on it either

    if i could choose 1 car to own it would be the Ford GT....doesnt matter that many are faster or worth more....i just love the looks and the performance is still great 10 years later

    i dont know why they didnt just make it a full production car....i assume they lost $$ on every one...why not raise the price to where it needs to be NOW and make them again...this time with the 5.8sc
