Two unique Fords will be sold on charity auction


Barrett-Jackson Auction which will be held in 8-10 April, defines the new owner of the last generation Ford GT supercar. It would seem that this car is not a rare it all, but this time it is a very special GT.

The first reason why the copy of risks triggering around his person fierce bidding – its paucity. This GT – one of 343 Heritage Edition cars. Power, alas, did not skate special version: its supercharged V8 of 5.4 liters produces the same 550 hp as standard Ford GT. But what is outside! Coupe is painted in the colors of the legendary GT40, won a victory in the 24-hour Le mans marathon in 1968 and 1969. The second reason – the car has run only five miles, or eight kilometers. In this case, the phrase “state of the new car” is relevant as never before and is a beautiful exaggeration. Presumably, Ford could be sold for at least $500,000 dollars. Interestingly, within the Barrett-Jackson auction will take the battle for customers another Ford GT Heritage Edition. However, the odometer on it has respectable figure – 3,000 miles.

Another interesting car that will go under the hammer – tuned pickup Hennessey VelociRaptor, former Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. But the creation of it by the Texas specialists requires a lot of upgrades which make it much more powerful than standard car: a 6.2-liter V8 engine develops 623 hp, with 212 HP more than standard pickup. Mad truck is gaining sixty within 5.5 seconds, but its speed is limited to 109 mph. However, the VelociRaptor impressive ability to maintain a high rate of movement is not on asphalt, and on rough terrain thanks to a striking suspension. By the way, yellow handsome once lit up at the UK Top Gear show back when Jeremy Clarkson, and this fact from the biography of the car certainly will make it more valuable in the eyes of potential buyers. The auction income will be directed to charity.
