Designing a GT40 concept car to celebrate Ford's centennial was a great idea. But this is for real!

Update: On Sept. 21, 2006.
A little more than two years after the first production car rolled off the assembly line at the Special Vehicle Center in Wixom, Michigan, workers built the last Ford GT - a bright red one - destined for a customer in Canada.

Averaging about nine cars per day, the 60 assembly plant workers at Wixom built 4038 GTs; 3656 aimed at U.S. roads, 277 for Canada and 105 for Europe. The last 40 or so cars, all red and with slightly different bumpers to meet Canadian regulations, went to our northern neighbors.


But even gutsier was the decision to the take the giant step and design the street-legal Ford GT. On August 4th, 2004, Ford made good on its Ford GT promises by delivering the first production GT for public sale (chassis number 10. The first 9 were reserved for internal use) to retrired Microsoft executive Jon Shirley.

Shirley bid $557,500 for charity at the Christie's auction at last years Pebble Beach Concours to buy the $140,000 2005 model Ford GT.

The prices of the few dealership remaining Ford GT’s seem to be on the rise in recent weeks, as production stopped last year, and when the new ones are all gone, that is it…

Ford GT has unique goodwill in auto word because of their different design concept and impressive performance. Ford is my one of the favorite brand and Ford GT is the big reason behind that.
