Do you have a quarter of a million pounds spare? You could soon drive away in a mint-condition 2006 Ford GT, as it’s coming up for auction at the end of the month. It’ll be auctioned alongside a restored Escort RS1600 and two special Sierra Cosworths at the Silverstone Auctions’ September Sale. Which of these cars takes your fancy?
The Ford GT is expected to reach the highest figure out of all the cars at the auction, which also includes a Jaguar XK120 Roadster, two high-powered Lamborghinis and a Ferrari 550. If you want this GT, expect your winning bid to be in the region of £230,000 - £260,000.
Fewer than 30 Ford GTs were delivered to UK customers, and this one’s only seen 5,000 miles of road. Safe to say, the 5.4-litre supercharged V8 hasn’t been wound out too often. Find an accommodating place and you’ll hit 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 205mph.
Alternatively, you could pick up a Ford Escort that promises to be one of the most expensive ever sold. The 1972 RS1600 could have just driven out of a time machine – it’s been fully restored to look like it just came out of the factory. Since then, it’s only driven 3,500 miles.
Painted in this original green colour, it's sure to stand out on the auction floor. It's expected to go for upwards of £60,000. That's still some way off a similar car, though, which sold for £91,000 a couple of years ago.
Another Ford in the auction is this Sierra RS Cosworth, which you might not even know existed. It’s a Wolf RS500; only 10 were created by Ford’s German touring car team, with some serious upgrades.
The engine is pumped up to 300hp and has racing pistons, there’s a twin exhaust system and lowered suspension. Imported to the UK earlier this year, the LHD Sierra has covered just 24,000 miles and is expected to sell for up to £42,000.
One of the first Sierra Sapphire Cosworths built is also going under the hammer. Since being registered in 1990, this car has had one owner – and she’s only driven 13,310 miles in it in all that time!
More than £5,000 has been spent to get this car to auction condition. It could be yours for between £30,000 and £35,000.
