Up for grabs will be build number 001 – the first GT F produced – and build number 500. The former is a manual finished in Kinetic Blue paint with a matt black stripe package and the Victorian registration GTF 001, while the latter is planned to be a manual but is yet to be built, allowing the winning bidder to select their preferred colour and stripe option.
The farewell edition FPV GT F models – two of just 550 sedans that will be built – will go live on eBay on the evening of August 17. Bidders will have a week to make their best offers, with the auction to end at 8pm on August 24.
Usually priced at $77,990, Ford says the majority of the proceeds raised from the auction will fund the foundation’s research working towards a cure.
Ford Australia president and CEO Bob Graziano said the funds would add to the $125 million Ford has donated globally to fund breast cancer research over more than 20 years, and Ford Australia’s $1.2 million contribution in the past 12 years.
“We are using the power of our most powerful GT ever to help the National Breast Cancer Foundation further fund breast cancer research,” Graziano said.
“These two iconic vehicles are the result of the innovation and passion of Ford and its engineers, and we aim to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation and the equally passionate researchers in their bid to achieve a future of zero deaths from breast cancer.
“We are totally committed to this cause and moving forward, one of the key priorities will be continuing our support of the communities in which we live and work, along with the broader Australian community.”
