You’d be forgiven if you’ve never heard of the Ford GT Studio Collection Series. Ford first announced the Studio Collection option for its GT supercar in 2020. Basically, it is an exterior graphics package resulting from a design partnership between Ford Performance and Ford GT manufacturer Multimatic.
Only 40 cars were slated to receive the Studio Collection package across the 2021 and 2022 model years. This example, currently up for sale on Bringatrailer, is part of the 20 units produced for the 2021 model year.
Ford unveiled the second-generation GT supercar at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. The low-slung supercar served up definitive proof that the American carmaker could still build elegant performance machines, one that could mix it up with the very best rival carmakers had to offer. The Ford GT is essentially a lightweight carbon-fibre monocoque built around a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6.
In the 2021 Ford GT, the turbocharged unit cranks out 660 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. A Getrag seven-speed dual-clutch transmission feeds that power to the rear wheels. The sleek GT can rocket to 60 mph in 3 seconds and continue accelerating until it peaks at 216 mph.
The Ford GT on Bringatrailer sports a colour scheme from the subtle end of the Studio Collection palette. It is finished in Frozen White with Studio Collection Graphics in Ingot Silver. The car also features the gloss Exterior Carbon-Fibre package, providing a nice contrast to the white colour. The Ford GT rides on staggered-width 20″ forged aluminum wheels fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.
On the interior, the owner opted for the Re-Entry package. That means black and white leather over fixed Sparco seats. There’s a lot of exposed carbon fibre, too, covering parts like the door sills, dashboard and center console. Equipment loadout on the car includes a front-axle lift system, an Akrapovic titanium exhaust, automatic climate control and a touchscreen entertainment system.
According to available records, the Ford GT has only had one owner and was purchased new through Reineke Ford in Ohio. It’s been used sparingly, with 752 miles on the odometer. The window sticker lists the car’s MSRP as $634,200. At the time of this writing, the highest bid for the car was $788,000. You can expect the final selling price to be even higher.
