Lot 748: 2018 Ford GT
Sale Price: $1,210,000
In 1966, Ford dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans with their 1-2-3 finish and on its 50th anniversary, Ford decided it was time for the GT to be reborn.
The all-new Ford GT was a marvel in aerodynamics and was made as a racing car to command Le Mans upon its return, and it was also refined enough to become a true exotic supercar.
The exterior of the Ford GT was made from a complete carbon-fiber passenger shell, hood, doors, fenders, front splitter, front and rear fascia, rear diffuser, and underbody aero shields. It is completed with a Shadow Black paint finish with Alloy racing stripes.
For its interior, the Ford GT is equipped with an F-1 inspired steering wheel wrapped in ebony Alcantara leather. The steering wheel is also equipped with an integrated LED rev indicator. The Sparco carbon-fibre seats are in a fixed-position and has an alluring Dark Energy interior theme, finished with Alcantara bolsters.
There are also factory-installed, 6-point harness anchors for those who are thinking of having weekend track days in the future. The optional red racing harnesses from Sparco are also included both for the driver and passenger.
The Ford GT is powered by the 647hmp 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that is mated to a 7-speed Getrag dual-clutch automatic transmission. The GT can go to 60mph in less than 3 seconds and has a top speed of more than 216mph.
This example sold only had done 856 actual miles, with all the factory recalls performed.
Lot 749: 2012 Lexus LFA
Sale Price: $440,000
The Lexus LFA was created and constructed as a true supercar. It is powered by a 553hp 4.8-liter V10 engine that revs from 600 to 9,000 rpms in under a second, with a 6-speed automated manual transaxle, and is capable of a top speed of more than 200mph.
The engine is completely hand-built and signed by the Takumi craftsmen from the Toyota Yamaha F1 program. It is meticulously engineered and is balanced with the LFA’s exceptional handling.
The Lexus LFA has a hand-built carbon-fiber, aluminum, and titanium body. There were only 500 LFAs that were produced in Japan and this example is #425 and it is one of the only 178 that were allocated and sold in the United States.
