The Ford GT has and will continue to hold an honorable place in automotive history as one of the most iconic American-made sports cars. It first roared onto the scene as a challenging competitor at Le Mans, achieving legendary status with significant victories against Ferrari. Over the years, the Ford GT has seen a triumphant return with three generations of production supercars, each iteration paying homage to Ford’s innovation and expertise in limited-production vehicle manufacturing. In 2005, Ford debuted the GTX1 as an example of true American ingenuity, a rare open-top version of the iconic GT that delivers exceptional performance and exclusivity. The passionate professionals at OpenRoad Northwest are pleased to showcase this rare 2005 Ford GTX1 Roadster as part of its growing inventory of supercars and hypercars for sale.
Already standing out as one of only 30 examples produced, this Ford GTX1 (Chassis #24) is even more rare, being the only car finished in a gloss black base with vibrant gold-painted racing stripes. The Ford GTX1’s exterior is a breathtaking display of innovation and craftsmanship, featuring a sleek, aerodynamic design and a striking open-top configuration that distinguishes it from its factory GT counterpart. Its low-profile silhouette and aggressive stance are complemented by a distinct front fascia and a rear spoiler.

The interior of the Ford GTX1 embodies the perfect blend of race-inspired functionality and premium comfort.
