In the elite world of automotive collectors, where rarity and pedigree reign supreme, the 2021 Ford GT Studio Collection Series emerges as a pinnacle of modern engineering and design. With only 20 units crafted for this exclusive series, each model represents the zenith of Ford’s commitment to performance and luxury. Among these, Serial No. 3, offered at the prestigious Glendale 2024 auction, is a testament to the GT’s legendary status in the automotive world.
This particular Ford GT, finished in a striking Frozen White with Ingot Silver graphics, is not merely a car; it’s a sculpted work of art. Its odometer registers a mere 753 miles, underscoring its pristine condition. The car was delivered new to Reineke Ford in Lima, Ohio, carrying a base price of $587,750, with an additional $49,000 in factory options, a clear indication of its exclusivity and the meticulous attention to detail in its creation.
The heart of this automotive masterpiece is a mid-mounted 3.5L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine, an engineering marvel delivering a staggering 660 HP. This translates to an astounding 183 HP per liter and 550 lb-ft of torque. Enhanced by an Akrapovic titanium exhaust system, this powertrain is not just about brute force; it’s a symphony of power and precision, managed by a paddle-shifted Getrag 7-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission.
From a design perspective, the GT’s aerodynamic prowess is unmatched. Its teardrop shape, seen from above, tapers sharply towards the rear, with flying buttresses channeling cool air to the engine. The car’s aggressive front styling and pod-style LED tail lights enhance its dynamic presence, while the Gloss Exterior Carbon Fiber package, a $15,000 addition, adds to its allure.
The interior of this Ford GTs is equally impressive. Trimmed in black and white leather upholstery, it features the exclusive $30,000 Re-Entry interior package. Sparco seats with carbon fiber shells, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a lightweight Gorilla Glass® windshield create an environment that balances luxury with performance. Modern amenities like automatic climate control and a touch-screen infotainment system ensure that this supercar is as comfortable as it is exhilarating.
Riding on optional 20-inch Satin Diamond Silver wheels, this Ford GT is more than a car; it’s a statement. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 MPH in under 3.0 seconds and reaching a top speed of 216 MPH, it’s a vehicle that commands respect on the road and admiration from enthusiasts.
As this exceptional 2021 Ford GT Studio Collection Series prepares for its moment at the Glendale 2024 auction, it stands as a beacon of automotive excellence. It’s not just a car; it’s a piece of Ford’s storied legacy, a legacy that continues to redefine what a supercar can be. This GT is a rare opportunity for collectors to own a piece of history, a vehicle that embodies the spirit of innovation and the relentless pursuit of perfection.
