Kid Rock’s Classic Ford GT Can Be Yours
Rock’s badass red-and-white ride is expected to fetch at least $500,000 at a March 25 auction.
The original run of Ford GTs from 2004-2006 yielded 4,000 examples. The rapper-turned-country rock artist’s ride is one of one of just 2,022 made in the 2005 model year, which carry a value of $440,000 in absolutely perfect condition, per Hagerty.
But the auction house expects the one driven 3,096 miles from new by Kid Rock to fetch between $500,000 and $575,000. That could be due to its full suite of factory options—racing stripes, forged aluminum BBS wheels, red-painted brake calipers, and a McIntosh stereo and subwoofer.
There is, of course, the Ford GT’s venerated icon status to consider as well. The name itself pays homage to the Carroll Shelby-designed GT40 that won Le Mans four times. Its arrival in the mid-aughts also marked that of a true American supercar powered by a 550-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V8.
Very few, if any, vehicles built stateside had a 205-mph top speed and 3.3-second zero-to-60-mph time to compete with the likes of the Porsche Carrera GT or Lamborghini Murcielago.
The auction lot also has a couple of sweeteners thrown in—a poster signed by Ford GT designer Camilo Pardo, and a guitar autographed by Kid Rock.
