Button’s Ford GT Is Going Under The Hammer
Silverstone Auctions usually has some tantalising lots, and one particular item in its upcoming Race Retro Classic Car Sale is no exception.
This 2005 Ford GT, which is special enough, used to be owned by British F1 legend Jenson Button, and with the car’s heritage is on sale with an estimate of up to £300,000.
The white and blue beauty is in near-immaculate condition and has just 8,350 miles on the clock, so it’s not as if Button and the second owner used it very much.
The GT has impressive figures to come with it: a V8 engine producing 550bhp, a 0-60 time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 205mph. All lovely words them.
As one of only 101 European models, this is a pretty special lot and it’s in great nick, with a full service history to boot.
If you’re keen to get your hands on it, Race Retro (which is a closed event – tickets are needed to enter) takes place on February 25 and 26, so if you’ve got a spare £300,000 or so lying around, you know where to spend it – lot 530 is the one to look out for.
