If you're a fan of the Ford GT exotic sports car, as I am, then you know how special and exciting the car is -- and you also know that certain GT models are more desired than others, based on colors, rarity, and options. This particular example is one of the most desirable of all, as it's just the third one built.

This Ford GT, which is finished in silver with black lower stripes, is VIN number 0003 -- and the very first car available to the public. The first-ever Ford GT was saved, presumably for the Ford Museum, while the second GT was retained by the Ford family. VIN 003 was auctioned off for charity, and purchased at Barrett-Jackson in 2006. It's now offered for sale with just 5,588 miles.

This particular GT is a "three option car," which is GT parlance meaning it has three of the car's four options, which were a McIntosh sound system, BBS wheels, red brake calipers and stripes. This one is missing only the stripes. The VIN does indeed verify that this is the third GT made, and this GT is offered for $540,000 -- huge money, even by Ford GT standards. But then, it's a rather special GT.

This particular GT is offered by Exotic Motorsports of Oklahoma in Edmond, Oklahoma, and it's available for shoppers who find the standard Ford GT to be just a bit too pedestrian. This one certainly doesn't have a pedestrian story to go along with it -- and it's an impressive car that will likely find its way into a serious collection given its value and position in the production sequence.
