Ford taking orders for the GT supercar
Customers wanting to own one of the all-new Ford GT ultra-high-performance supercars can officially submit their applications from today at FordGT.com.
Only 500 left-hand-drive models of the new car will be built during the next two years.
“The purchase process for the Ford GT is as unique as our all-new supercar,” said Henry Ford III, global marketing manager, Ford Performance.
“We understand GT customers are strong ambassadors for Ford Motor Company, and we look forward to providing them a service as distinct as the car itself.”
The Ford GT is the most advanced Ford production vehicle ever built, and features the latest in lightweight design, aerodynamics and EcoBoost® engine technology.
The company says applicants will have an opportunity to identify their preferred Ford dealership in GT-approved markets and, if approved, will complete their purchase with the help of their dealer and the new Ford GT Concierge Service.
Accepted applicants from around the world would be contacted by the concierge and provided a tailored experience – not only through the ordering and delivery but through years of ownership.
The new Ford GT website also offers a configurator that allows anyone to build a virtual GT and easily share their dream combinations from a number of color, wheels and interior themes with the world through social media.
For production, eight exterior colors can be paired with one of seven different stripe colors, giving the Ford GT customer many choices to keep their vehicle as unique as they are.
Pricing for the Ford GT is expected to have a starting price in the mid-$US400,000s, excluding destination and delivery.
The Ford GT will be one of the rarest Ford products ever. Production is limited to 250 units per year, and the initial ordering period will cover the first two years of production.
The web-based application process for the first round of applications for the all-new Ford GT closes on May 12, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. EDT.
