At its 25th anniversary gala on Saturday, October 5, 2019, the Petersen Automotive Museum will auction off one of the last public allocations for a new Ford GT. Because the Ford GT is one of the rarest supercars of the modern era with only 1,350 allocations total, this auction represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the winning bidder to obtain the car in any trim—from the ultra-limited-edition (and sold out) Heritage Edition or Carbon Series to custom bespoke paint options chosen by the buyer themselves.
