2017 Ford GT Sells At Mecum Auction And Ford Isn't Happy About It

The process for securing a 2017 Ford GT was a lengthy one if you talk to anyone who was able to secure one as production was extremely limited.  Owners were also asked to sign a contract that promised that they basically wouldn't sell the car for two years.  John Cena got in legal trouble recently for selling the Ford GT that he purchased.  This week Mecum made headlines because a 2017 Ford GT showed on the auction block for their show in Indy this weekend.

I honestly expected Ford to stop the buyer from selling it prior to the auction but that clearly didn't happen because the vehicle not only was put up for sale but sold for far above the purchase price.

 

Here's the moment the 2017 Ford GT sold:

 

What do you think about contract buyers had to sign promising to not sell the car for 2 years?  I might be in the minority here but I get why they did it.  They wanted car enthusiasts and collectors to own the car and not someone who would buy it knowing it's rare just to turn around and flip it.  Thoughts?
