What's new in the Ford world?
Offered without reserve at Worldwide’s Auburn Auction in September was the streetlegal 2004 Ford GT Confirmation Prototype CP4. This piece of modern Ford history is one of only four remaining CP cars, and was the first GT to hit 200mph in testing. It’s also the only remaining CP which isn’t speed-governed to 15mph! As is the nature of prototypes it has a number of detail differences to the production car; it’s also got the stripe-delete, no airbags and very little soundproofing. Sounds like a fun ride! The final hammer price was a robust $467,500 – decent cash, but for the serious collector that’s a small price to pay for a unique slice of marque legend.
