It's easy to look at a car like the Ford GT and consider it a solid investment. Taken at face value, GTs, currently selling for over twice their original retail price, are an easy way to bank a hard asset. But focusing on simple financials doesn't really do these classics justice. See, the collector car market is built around passion and the feelings certain cars inspire. And often the most visceral and exclusive machines bring the biggest money. The Ford GT is certainly a visceral experience, but this incredible, 1-of-38 GTX1 takes things to a whole new level! Not only is the car an ultra-exclusive variant of a highly exclusive halo marque, it also uses choice modifications to enhance an already thrilling driving experience. Want an investment that performs in more ways than one? We recommend this formidable Ford!

PUTTING THE GTX1 IN THE GT

You might be asking yourself “What exactly is a Ford GTX1?” Well, simply put, it's a more intense Ford GT that's been custom-tailored with an array of world class upgrades. The car was actually designed by Ford's own Kip Ewing (https://youtu.be/yQNBrS5Y298), one of the primary engineers behind the original Ford GT, the Shelby GT500 and the second-generation Ford GT. After debuting a concept at the 2005 SEMA Show, Ford's Special Vehicle Team, now known as Ford Performance, saw fit to put the design in to limited production. So, the team promptly commissioned 500 cars through pro coachbuilders Genaddi Design Group. However, as often happens with highly specialized cars, production was cut short. And after building just 38 GTX1s, each upfit costing roughly $200K, the program was unceremoniously discontinued.

Simple supply and demand dictates that abbreviated production is always a boon for collectors, and GTX1s were guaranteed collectibles from the word “go”. That said, the goal of the program was to provide owners with a car that truly enhanced an already amazing driving experience. So, in addition to being included in the NADA Guide, and listed with the Shelby American Automobile Club, GTX1s feature unique aesthetics that aid performance. At the front of GTX1 number 19, a well-known car that's been serviced by The GT Guy (GTG), a custom, one-off fascia increases cooling at the track. That carbon fiber-trimmed nose leads a lightweight, all-aluminum body, which hangs carbon fiber skirts at the sides of roll-bonded floors. Above those skirts, body-matched mirrors reflect sequential Genaddi badging and a removable hardtop that's 1 of 5 fabricated for the GTX1 program. That top makes room for convenient scissor doors, which greatly improve both ingress and egress. Behind those wings, a Guerin clamshell hood provides convenient access to the car's reinforced engine bay. And that LED-tinged bonnet shades custom rear splitters that blend well with the car's Midnight Blue Metallic pigment.

FEEL THE POWER

At the beginning of this piece we talked about the passion certain classics inspire, and how every great collector car is rooted in those feelings. Not only was the GTX1 born from that mindset, it defines the sentiment. Even compared to the other GTs we have on premises, this roadster is incredibly carnal. For sure, the car's 842 rear-wheel horsepower certainly provides personality, but the carefully accentuated sound and pull of its 5.4 liter mod motor is really something special. Specifically created for the GT program, that burly V8 is founded on a unique aluminum block that benefits from dry-sump lubrication and a heavy duty GT Guy radiator. A forged rotating assembly plays well with four GT-specific cams and reengineered heads that were borrowed from SVT's awesome Mustang Cobra R. And all that proven hardware spins under a polished Whipple supercharger that's paired with a custom intake. That massaged mill easily motivates a Ricardo 6-speed transaxle, which wears an aftermarket cooler and a high performance Stillen clutch. That gearbox twists power to a helical limited-slip differential that's finished with Stillen 3.90 gears. That drivetrain rides a fully independent suspension, which marries a sturdy, superplastic-formed frame with adjustable Penske shocks. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. Stops come courtesy of cross-drilled discs and body-matched Ford GTX1 calipers, which make excellent use of electronic brake distribution and standard anti-lock technology. The big engine roars through custom headers and a custom exhaust system. And all that track-ready prowess grips through attractive BBS alloys, which twist 235/45ZR18 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar radials in front of 315/40ZR19 Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar radials.

OPEN-AIR COMFORT

Part of the appeal of modern supercars is, unlike their charmingly raw predecessors, they're engineered as the total package. As cars like the storied GT40 have been distilled from purpose-built track champions into white-collar status symbols, luxury has become a crucial part of the equation. Ford already made the first-generation GT plenty nice, with standard leather trim, factory air conditioning and optional premium audio. But, as with every other aspect of this spyder, Genaddi Design Group decided to sweeten the pot. Step over the car's custom sill plates and you'll find custom Sparco buckets that stretch plush Alcantara trim under bright silver grommets. In front of those seats, an Azdel Superlite Composite dash stretches French-stitched Alcantara trim around precise telemetry and premium Eclipse audio that features a reverse camera and built-in navigation. At the bottom of that dash, a magnesium console anchors an Alcantara armrest behind a Genaddi-massaged shifter and a French-stitch hand brake. Beneath that console, clean floors floats GTX1-themed floor mats around metal foot pedals and a body-matched Safecraft fire extinguisher. Custom, Alcantara-lined door panels found keyless power door locks beneath factory power windows and requisite power mirrors. And in front of the driver, an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel spins a red center mark around a tilting and telescoping column.
