MODERN SUPERCAR MARVEL: The Ford GT on Barrett-Jackson’s 2023 Auction Block
PALM BEACH 2023 – 2020 FORD GT HERITAGE EDITION – SOLD! $1,457,500

The Ford GT stands as a testament to the American automotive industry’s pursuit of speed, power and innovation. Inspired by the legendary Ford GT40 that dominated Le Mans in the 1960s, the second-generation Ford GT, produced from 2005 through 2006, and the third generation modern-day Ford GT, which spans from 2017 to present, are mesmerizing supercars that combine cutting-edge technology with a rich racing heritage. As a limited-production supercar, each generation represents a rare and exclusive ownership experience that embodies the essence of speed, power and innovation.

A new era for the Ford GT started on the block in 2018. Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale Auction was the first to offer a modern Ford GT to support a charitable cause. In the subsequent year, the auction house went on to sell a 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition VIN 001 – also to benefit charity – and later that year became the first auction company to announce the sale of a non-charity modern Ford GT with No Reserve, which sold at the Las Vegas Auction in October 2019.

Fast-forward to this year and take a look at these beautiful Ford GTs that have graced the Barrett-Jackson Auction block thus far in 2023:

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

yamaha wr155r scrambler 745x497 1

Yamaha WR155R scrambler by Dream Fast Co.
A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
