The numbers are out.

Ford will make only 250 cars each year and the base price will be around £260,000. That makes it around the same ballpark as the Aventador and £50k more expensive than a Ferrari 488 GTB. Gulp!

2 things are for sure. Ford is incredibly confident about the new GT which is good to see and it is no longer the working class hero.

Can't wait for the reviews.

Ford plans to make only 250 units/year to keep it as exclusive as possible.

Will be available from late 2016

And the quintessential 'amrikan' sportscar is wishing for a comeback! IMHO this feels a little less GTish and more LAMBOish in terms of design language! The original plain flowing lines of a GT were what really got my boat sailing all these years!
But not being a status quoist, i believe the change was and is necessary!
P.S. Please God let them plonk in a big motor and not go the Eco Boost way!!

The clean lines of previos GTs have vanished. Had it not been for that bonnet, one would struggle to decide which car this is. Turbo charging is the path all major manufacturers are following and Ford is no exception. For old times' sake, I would have liked it to have a V8 engine though.

Ford GT: Demand outstrips supply by 2800% after online sales portal goes live


Ford recently launched an online configurator for the new GT. This invites would-be customers to explain why they’re worthy of owning one – which appears to have been a wise strategy, because more than 7000 applications have been received.

Given that Ford will only be making 250 GTs a year, someone’s going to be kept quite busy sifting through that lot.

Ford GT production extended by two years

Ford has officially announced that it will be extending production of the GT supercar by two more years. This decision has been taken after seeing huge demand for the Ford GT globally.

The American automaker had introduced the new Ford GT at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. It was announced that only 500 units will be produced over the next two years. But the automaker received more than 7,000 applications globally. This motivated Ford to extend production of the GT for fulfilling the demand of a few more customers.

The company has made it clear that the third year of production will be for the people who were kept on the waiting list during the first application process. New applicants and those who weren't shortlisted previously will be addressed in the fourth year of production. This new application window will open in early 2018, while those who had applied previously but didn’t make it to the final list will just need to update their request to be considered for the new application screening.
