Ultra-Exclusive Ford GT GTX1 Looking For New Home
The GTX1 was designed by Kip Ewing, one of the Ford engineers behind the original Ford GT, second-gen GT, and Shelby 500. The GTX1 concept was revealed at the 2005 SEMA show, after which Ford decided on a limited run of 500 cars. This was eventually cut short after only 38 were built. This amount of exclusivity is a boon for collectors looking for something special. So what makes the GTX1 different from the standard car? Quite a lot as it turns out.
The 5.4-liter supercharged V8 engine has been treated to a set of re-engineered heads, a reduced supercharger pulley for added boost, a performance exhaust system, and a custom tune. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Ricardo 6-speed manual transaxle transmission and a helical limited-slip differential which in turn spins massive 315/40ZR19 Goodyear Eagle F1 tires in the rear.
