If there’s about $450,000 burning a hole in your wallet, Ford wants you to definitely get in line for the new GT.
The application process for the 2017 and 2018 design years of the carbon fibre supercar kicked off today, as well as along with it, a very selective customer testing process.
Ford?will sell a?limited number of GTs each?year, produced by Canadian firm Multimatic, therefore it could be a long wait if you don’t make the reduce this time around. Ford expects first deliveries will start?late this year, with applications ending on May 12. Oh yea, and Russia? A person can’t order the Ford GT, if you don’t have a friend buy it for you personally in an eligible nation – like, state, China.
North America, European countries, Asia and U.S. partners in the centre East (Saudi Arabia, UAE) will be allowed to enter into the ordering process, but Latin America, The african continent, the Indian subcontinent and Australia need not apply.
Sporting a lightweight teardrop body and more than 600 horsepower on tap from a mid-mounted, intercooled Three.5-liter Ecoboost engine, the GT has been a much-anticipated status symbol since Ford?unveiled this?in Detroit in 2015. Titillating potential buyers even more is always that this historically influenced supercar will return to the 24 Hours of LeMans within June.
Ford estimates the cost of the 2017 GT as being in the low- to mid-$400,Thousand range (USD), but money probably isn’capital t a huge consideration if you’re actually considering a GT buy.
The cumbersome ordering procedure is meant to weed out the actual reputable buyers from the shifty?hoi-poloi, with special consideration given to buyers of the first-generation (2004-2007) GT.
“Ford is conducting this particular application process to identify from a host of deserving candidates those individuals who will be invited to discuss a potential Ford GT buy,” the automaker states on its software webpage. “Completing a credit card applicatoin does not guarantee that you’ve got the opportunity to purchase a Kia GT.”
Flashback to junior high sports, immediately.
