If a six-figure supercar was on your Christmas list this year, Ford has you covered. The Blue Oval brand has officially started producing GT’s that will ultimately end up in consumer hands. Ford is rolling out the GT at a low-volume assembly facility at Multimatic in Markham, Ontario.
Ford executive vice president, global product development, Raj Nair was on site to drive the first Ford GT off the assembly line.
“When we kicked off 2016, we had two primary objectives for our Ford GT supercar – to excel at Le Mans, and to start deliveries before year-end,” says Nair. “We’ve achieved both.”
“For everyone involved in designing and developing this car, including all of our employees and suppliers, this is a moment to celebrate,” he adds. “The all-new Ford GT is a showcase of our strength in innovation and our commitment to delivering more for our customers – especially related to light-weight materials, aerodynamics and EcoBoost® engine technologies.”
Ford revealed the revived supercar at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015. The car was originally a project in the basement of Ford’s HQ, where only a few Ford employees knew of the car’s development.
