Customers wanting to own a new Ford GT ultra-high-performance supercar can officially submit an application today at FordGT.com. Production is limited to 250 units per year, and the initial ordering period will cover the first two years of production.
Limited production of the all-new Ford GT inspired Ford Performance to create a unique, customer-focused experience to help select potential owners for the new supercar, according to the company. Approved applicants will work with the new Ford GT Concierge Service for a personalized purchase experience.
“The purchase process for the Ford GT is as unique as our all-new supercar,” said Henry Ford III, global marketing manager of Ford Performance. “We understand GT customers are strong ambassadors for Ford Motor Co., 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, featuring the latest in lightweighting, aerodynamics and EcoBoost engine technology.
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 will be contacted by the concierge and provided a tailored experience-not only through the ordering and delivery but through years of ownership, according to Ford.
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-$400,000s, excluding destination and delivery.
The web-based application process for the first round of applications closes May 12.
