Originally conceived as a concept car to celebrate the upcoming centenary of the Ford Motor Company in 2003, the reimagined Ford GT first appeared at the North American International Auto Show in January 2002 prior to formally entering production in 2004. Its concept is widely attributed to then Ford Chief Creative Officer J Mays, who also presided over the introduction of Ford’s similarly retro-inspired fifth-generation Mustang. Each would form part of a concerted Retrofuturistic marketing approach by the Blue Oval in the early 2000s in celebration of their past successes in the luxury and performance sectors; the new GT forming its centerpiece in honor of Ford’s four consecutive wins at Le Mans in the 1960s with its era-defining GT40 and MK IV models. Now joined by the high-tech second generation Ford GT often described as a Le Mans car for the road, the first generation provides a more driver-focused approach with 550 horsepower and a manual transmission which served as the “pace car for an entire company.”
This car is part of the George Foreman Collection, which comprises over 50 cars from the 1930s through today, with a focus on American classics and late-model sports cars.

Please note that the vehicles in The George Foreman Collection have been in long-term static storage and will benefit from additional mechanical attention prior to being driven. Bidders are encouraged to review the Additional Documents section of each lot for any recent mechanical service rendered to help return certain vehicles to running condition. Additionally, bidders should carefully review the photos of each lot in the collection, which may highlight the oxidation of metal components certain vehicles sustained as the result of a garage fire caused by a golf cart battery in March 2019. Although none of the vehicles sustained fire damage from the fire itself, the negative cosmetic effects of the corrosive soot vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle and can be observed in the photo galleries of each lot. All lots are sold as is, where is, and bidders are responsible for any desired diligence before placing a bid.
