Have you ever wanted to completely dominate a Lamborghini Aventador in a race? For a mere $300K, you can. Hitting the auction block this Sunday is a limited-production Ford GTX1 Spyder. It’s one of only 30 Spyder variants of the Ford GT ever built.

This particular GTX1 legitimately blows fire out the back and will mock a Ferrari Enzo like a schoolyard bully. Settled behind the glorious open cockpit are a pair of turbochargers breathing forced air into the 5.4-liter V-8 power-plant. This warp drive of an engine was installed by none other than Ford GT expert Rich Brooks.

The result is an engine producing over 1,000 hp, making this one-off almost as powerful as two Lamborghini Gallardos, and giving it 400 hp more than the Huracan.

Plus—considering DJ Pauly D just spent over $400,000 for a used Aventador—this Ford GT is a bargain. That is, of course, provided you can drive a 6-speed manual transmission.

Auctions America asks, "Is this perhaps the ultimate American sports car?" Well, with over $14,000 of style upgrades and detailing, it would be extremely difficult to find something better.
