Petrolheads with means who want to own one of Ford’s GT supercars have until May 12 to submit their applications at FordGT.com.
The GT will be one of the rarest Ford products ever. Production is limited to 250 units per year, and the initial ordering period will cover the first two years of production – 500 vehicles.
Limited production of the hot new Ford GT inspired Ford Performance to create a unique, customer-focused experience to help select potential owners for the new supercar. Approved applicants will work with the newly introduced Ford GT Concierge Service for a personalised 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 Company, 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. The stunning supercar is an innovation showcase for the Ford brand.
Applicants will have an opportunity online to identify their preferred Ford dealership in GT-approved markets and, if selected by the automaker, will complete their purchase with the help of their dealer and the Ford GT Concierge Service.
Accepted applicants from around the world will be contacted by the concierge and provided with a tailored experience, not only through the ordering and delivery but through years of ownership.
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 colour, wheels and interior themes) with the world through social media.
For production, eight exterior colours can be paired with one of seven different stripe colours, giving the Ford GT customer many choices to create a personal supercar.
Base pricing for the Ford GT is expected to start at US$350,000.
The Ford GT website’s country selector doesn’t have Singapore, at least not yet, but it does have Hong Kong, which is a right-hand-drive car market like Singapore.
