Manufactured between 2004 and 2006, only 1270 units of the Carrera GT were produced, and the vehicle featured in the video is one of merely 40 cars with a custom paint job. It is also the lone example with a Midnight Blue exterior.
In the video, James takes us through all the switches and controls inside the car, of which there aren’t many. The Carrera GT belongs to the category of the last manual supercars with minimal complex electronics. Thus, the controls are fairly straightforward.
Even the 2-piece roof is quite simple to detach. It can be placed in the front compartment, accompanied by a convenient diagram outlining the correct method to secure the roof panels.
The Carrera GT’s distinguishing feature is its 5.2-liter V10 engine, which is housed within a carbon fiber cradle at the rear. This motorsport-derived unit generates 603 hp and 435 lb-ft of torque, which is then transferred to the rear axle via a 6-speed manual gearbox.
