Ford Motor Co. announced today that it had received over 6,500 completed applications within the last month for its initial 500 unit run of its $400,000 GT supercar.
Ford indicated that it will soon begin its review process and will notify successful applicants within the next 90 days. That will leave about 6,000 disappointed hopeful owners who will receive rejection letters.
As part of the application process, Ford is taking into consideration whether applicants are current or past owners of GTs and other Ford vehicles. The company has said that it will favor people who intend to drive the carbon-fiber supercar rather than collect it as a showpiece.
Dave Pericak, director of Global Ford Performance, said in the announcement “this initial application window is just one of many ways fans and potential owners will have to connect with our all-new supercar even before it hits the streets.”
The Ford GT will be built by Multimatic Motorsports of Markham, Ontario. About 250 cars will be produced annually at the facility.
