This $1.4 Million Ford GT Resale Will Cost You an Extra $1.2 Million to Export From Europe

The current generation of the Ford GT is a hardcore supercar, no matter how deeply you’ve pledged yourself to the religion that only worships powerhouses with eight cylinders in a V-shaped formation. But some GTs, like the stunning red one here, pack a few less appealing, and expensive, realities.

CarBuzz recently found this 2018 Ford GT ‘67 Heritage Edition on JamesEdition for 1.2 million euros, or nearly $1.4 million at current exchange rates. The 647-horsepower, 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 supercar is in Germany, according to the listing, and comes with a black interior and 20 miles on the odometer.

But in addition to being listed for nearly triple the MSRP and likely illegal to sell in Ford’s eyes, this Ford GT will also cost more than $1.2 million to export out of Europe at current exchange rates. That price alone is more than double the GT’s base MSRP, at least in the U.S., of $450,000 to $500,000, and the cost of both buying and exporting the car would come to just over $2.6 million—the base MSRP plus a couple of used Bugatti Veyrons, basically.

The thing is, this is one of the few current-generation Ford GTs out there that isn’t for sale through Ford’s picky application process for its limited-run car, for one main reason: Owners aren’t allowed to resell for 24 months after taking delivery of the car.

Since this one listed on JamesEdition is a 2018, the math says it probably hasn’t gotten out of that two-year window yet. If it’s anything like other resales that have happened in the past couple of years, we may see a lawsuit in the near future over that very customer agreement.

Until then, if Ford didn’t pick you for a GT but you have between $1.4 million and $3 million to burn, your chance has finally come. Truly, congratulations.
