The reveal of Ford’s new GT at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show came as a complete shock to the industry. Developed in complete secrecy, upon its announcement Ford stated that they not only sought to make the new GT a world-beating supercar—but also declared their intent to take it racing. Their ambitious goal was winning their class at the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans, 50 years after Ford’s fabled 1-2-3 sweep at the event with the GT40. Remarkably, Ford achieved its objective, with the Ford Chip Ganassi Team USA’s GT claiming 1st in the LMGTE Pro Class, just ahead of the Risi Competizione Ferrari 488 GTE.

While its predecessors were fitted with V-8 engines, this new GT would boast a 647-horsepower, twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine mated to a seven-speed Getrag dual-clutch transmission. From a standstill, the GT could sprint to 60 mph in just 3 seconds, leading to a top speed of 216 mph. An adaptive suspension could lower the ride height by a full two inches, while the self-adjusting rear spoiler raised itself to improve aerodynamics. Anchored by Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes with six-piston calipers and huge 15.5-inch rotors up front, the GT also employed hydraulic power steering, making for a supercar that by every account provided immediate feedback to the driver from every input.

Aesthetically, the new GT was a revolutionary new design, rather than an evolution of its predecessors. A strong emphasis on low weight and aerodynamic efficiency dictated futuristic bodywork with flying buttresses that ingeniously channeled air to mechanical components while maximizing downforce.

Demand was so strong for the GT that Ford implemented a rigid application process for the privilege of buying one, handpicking loyal Ford enthusiasts and mandating that they keep their cars for an extended period. Applications quickly outnumbered available chassis allotments by nearly tenfold at the model’s official launch. With only 1,350 examples planned for production through the 2022 model year, this makes these GTs far rarer than the 2005–2006 model year Ford GT, of which nearly 4,000 examples were built.


Upon first sight of this 2022 Ford GT, Serial Number N085, one immediately understands how this collection achieved the moniker “Dare to Dream.” The owner’s passion for footwear and automobiles perfectly intersects with this one-off creation inspired by the Nike Air Jordan 1 sneaker. Fascinating correspondence with the team at Multimatic on file details the in-depth design process carried out in order to bring this vision to life. After some time, a number of livery proposals were presented before settling on the final scheme now seen on the car today—striking to even a casual observer, but unmistakable to sneaker aficionados.

As presented today, the exterior features primary “Nadal Red” extended palette paint with Frozen White doors and hood. Gloss Black adorns the lower elements of the car including the wheels, which cover red brake calipers. Stepping into the interior, the livery continues onto the red-and-white-striped seats. Red seat belts are additionally matched by red shift paddles behind the steering wheel. All together, these elements combine to create a striking and utterly unique specification of Ford’s Le Mans-conquering supercar.

This GT was delivered new to the collection and has since travelled just 246 kilometers (~165 miles) at the time of cataloging. In addition to the correspondence, the car will be accompanied by a window sticker, assembly photos, a Ford Design Kit, and color samples.

Ford GT Serial Number N085 truly embodies the spirit of the Dare to Dream Collection. Its offering represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire an incredibly well-maintained example of one of the 21st century’s most desirable supercars—and one that benefits from unique, and truly visionary, design inspiration.
