Originally owned by Michael Dingman, a member of Ford’s Board of Directors for over two decades, this Ford GT was ordered on May 18, 2004 with a handwritten notation in the offering letter that read “car #2.” It is expected to fetch $450,000 – $550,000 when hit the auction block at Fort Lauderdale sale on March 28, 2015. It is believed that chassis 01 is retained directly by Ford, making chassis number 002 the lowest numbered example of a Ford GT that will likely ever be offered to the general public.
The total production of the Ford GT was cut short of its limit, with just 4,038 examples produced, ending on September 21, 2006. With an electronically limited top speed of 205 miles per hour, supported by cutting-edge technology as well as race-proven handling and braking, this Ford GT offers championship winning performance and a legendary pedigree. It continues to reside in the elite club of modern supercars, and this example will be set apart from all others due to the exceptional pedigree of its existence and its illustrious first owner.
