The model put up for auction is the first generation of mass-produced GT supercars. Ford released 4,038 cars from 2004 to 2006. The first 9 cars were intended for sale to employees of the company and members of their families. This supercar came off the assembly line second: this is evidenced by the plate with the serial number on the body. Given that the first created model is stored in the collection of the American company, the supercar with the chassis number 02 is the most valuable copy available for purchase.

The first owner of the supercar was Ford Board Member Michael Dingman, who bought the car at the assembly stage in August, 2003. After that, the Ford GT changed two more owners, who drove at the wheel of the supercar only 402 km in 16 years of operation. The coupe is painted black with white stripes running along the entire body. The Ford GT has silver BBS wheels and a black leather interior.
