Lot S99 2006 Ford GT $302,500
The main highlight of the event was Lot S99, a 2006 Ford GT that was sold for $302,500
The Ford GT—initially only manufactured in 2005 and 2006—dazzled the automotive industry just like the first GT40 it resembled.
This 2006 Ford GT includes all four possible options: BBS forged aluminum wheels, red-painted brake calipers, an upgraded McIntosh stereo system, and Le Mans racing stripes.
The car is painted in red with the white Le Mans stripes, one of only 348 that were produced in these colors.
Under the hood is a supercharged 5.4L V-8 engine producing 550 HP. It is matched with a Ricardo 6-speed manual transmission. The car has a top speed exceeding 200mph and accelerated from 0-60 MPH in about 3.5 seconds.
Lot S109 Resto-Modded 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible $242,000
The second top seller was Lot S109, a Resto-Modded 1962 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible selling for $242,000.
This car was built by Jeff Hayes and American Speed Shop. Under the hood is a new aluminum LS3 hot cam engine with custom polished aluminum intake along with polished stainless headers.
Lot S90 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback $225,000
The third highest sale was a gorgeous Grabber Blue, 4-speed 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429 Fastback that was sold for $225,500.
The Boss 429 versions were only built in 1969-70. This is KK No. 2399, a 1970 model that has had an extensive restoration. Under the hood lies a NASCAR-bred 429/375 HP 820-T V-8 engine complete with displacement valve cover callouts, lip-seal air cleaner and OEM-level detailing.
