A rare Ford GT supercar is up for sale with one careful owner – JENSON BUTTON.

The F1 ace added this gleaming white model to his collection of sports cars in 2006.

But the former world champion only covered 3,500 miles in the five-year old vehicle and it’s now come onto the market for £129,995.

The dazzling sports car is a contemporary homage to the classic Ford GT40 of the 1960s – the only American race car to win Le Mans.

It has been fitted with a 5.4-litre V8 engine developing a colossal 500bhp to make it the fastest production Ford ever built.

This American muscle accelerates the GT from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds, 0-100mph in 7.8 seconds.

It will crack 150mph in 17.5 seconds before topping out at 212mph.

When The Stig took the Ford around the Top Gear track he managed a lap in 1 minute 21.9 seconds – faster than a Lamborghini Murcielago.

Jeremy Clarkson was so impressed after test-driving the GT he bought one.

This model is being sold by Bradford-based supercar dealer and car tuner Project Kahn – owned by the colourful Tweeter Afzal Kahn.

He said: ”It’s exciting to have such a rare and great vehicle in stock – this one is certainly in a league of its own.

”It’s a really good investment with the current value increasing by ten per cent each year.

”And it was owned by Jensen Button, it’s perfect!”

Jenson Button is one of those rare F1 stars who actually drives a supercar in his spare time, with many of his rivals choosing to drive round their opulent communities in superminis and Smart cars.

In the past he has owned a number of Ferraris, a Nissan GT-R and a Bugatti Veyron. His current company car is the new McLaren MP4-12C.
