The Ford GT, in all its incarnations, is an icon of American motoring.

With prices of current-gen Ford GTs soaring to well over $1m and far outstripping their list price, the previous-generation GTs are starting to look like very good value indeed, even if Jeremy Clarkson loved his, then hated it, then loved it, then hated it once more.

This particular car is no 'ordinary' Ford GT though, if you can even call a Ford GT 'normal.' A rare GTX1 model, it was designed by Fords' Kip Ewing, and built by coachbuilder Genaddi Design Group.

Initially, a run of 500 cars was planned, but this was cut short. Historians now argue about the total number of cars produced, which ranges from 100 to just 38, depending on who you speak to.

Regardless of how many were built, this is still an extremely rare variant of the Ford GT. So, what makes a GTX1 rare? Well, it has a removable carbon-fibre roof panel, distinctive floor mats, and different seats to the standard car.

No only that, but the GTX1 also benefitted from a removable plastic rear window, Accufab performance X-pipe exhaust, and this particular car also comes with the optional McIntosh audio system with Bluetooth connectivity.

Finished in a shade known as 'Mark II Black Clearcoat' complete with silver racing stripes, this is car 6 in the production run, making it a very early car indeed.

Under the hood, the GTX1 is powered by the same 5.4l supercharged V8 as the standard model, coupled to a six-speed manual transmission. Power output sits at 550hp, as per the standard Ford GT.

With just 1,755 miles on the clock, RK Motors in Charlotte are asking for $595,900 (around £437,000) - would you have this GTX1, or a standard Ford GT from the same generation?

  • A guy who lives/lived down the street from me (between Seattle and Tacoma) used to have one in silver. The first time I saw it I was blown away as it's not an affluent neighborhood and the guy's house was pretty unassuming. It got wrapped around a tree years ago. Pity

  • Historians and American icon? It’s from 2006. Not 1964. Also. That’s more expensive than a current GT, so no way either way.

    • For the new GT, it starts at $500k but you have to be chosen by Ford themselves to purchase one. Then you have to sign an agreement saying you won't sell it within the first two years. After two years, it sells for usually twice the base price.

    • Fords trying to be exclusive but that contract sounds like Ferrari. 😆
