The sad fate of a Ford GT in Israel confiscated

What the hell happened to the Ford GT? Nothing good as you can see. It seems that Israel has very high for imports of high-end cars taxes. The Ford GT was imported to Israel in 2006, but irregularly. To avoid paying a huge amount of taxes declared that the importer was importing a Ford Mustang GT, whose base value is much lower. How could it be otherwise, the irregularity was detected and the car was confiscated . Its current state is deplorable.

Today, it is impossible to find a second hand unit for less than 250,000 euros.

Especially considering that at the time, was a new car. Today still no hardly gone kilometers, but after years of being exposed to the rigors of Israeli climate – extreme heat much of the year and storms usual arena – have left their body and components set forth in a state frankly bad. The Israeli state would have tried unsuccessfully to auction the car. Now, every three weeks, an auction is held parts. Today, already missing her rear hood and several wheels.

Of the 4,038 Ford GT produced between 2005 and 2006 – the 100th anniversary conemorando Ford – only 538 were sold outside the United States , most of them in the UK. It is a pity that some units have finished their days in this way, and not in the hands of a careful owner who could enjoy the car.
