After more than 10,800 people showed interest in buying the new Ford GT, the Blue Oval has announced that it received 6,506 fully completed applications.
These came in from all over the globe and creative applicants have submitted videos featuring revving engines, garage tours, lighting effects, children and life stories to show why they should be chosen by Ford to own the all-new GT.
“We’re excited by the amount of enthusiasm fans are showing for the new Ford GT. 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“, said Global Ford Performance director, Dave Pericak.
Ford will now review the applications for the first 500 GT supercars and will start notifying potential owners in the next 90 days.
The first units of the Ford GT will arrive in customers’ garages by the end of this year. The automaker will assemble 250 units annually and despite being just a few months from commencing deliveries, the brand continues to keep specs and pricing a secret. However, the supercar is expected to cost in the neighborhood of $450,000 in the United States and to offer more than 600 HP, from the 3.5-liter biturbo V6 EcoBoost, in its final form.
