When Ford debuted the current GT, it was an ultra-exclusive supercar offered only to its most discerning customers. New owners signed a contract saying they would not resell the car for two years, something Ford was so serious about that even landed John Cena with a lawsuit. It meant the first few years of allocation landed only in the hands of Ford’s most loyal customers and buyers. Like, for instance, RTR Vehicles founder and Ford-backed professional drifter Vaughn Gittin Jr.
This car, a 2018 model finished in Lead Foot gray from the $30,000-option extended color palette, was Gittin’s personal GT. The car was the star of a series of videos for Ford Performance when he got it in 2018. Since then, it has been driven just under 2,000 miles and remains in like-new condition.
Although the car is displayed now with the OEM wheels, the auction also includes a set of Aero 5 wheels from Gittin’s RTR with bright green highlights. If installed, they would make the relatively conservative gray GT instantly recognizable as a Gittin car.
