Watch The First Ford GT Road Cars Roll Off The Production Line

The first production examples of the Ford GT rolled off the production line in Canada, with the company releasing a short video from the ceremony.

The first example of the Ford GT belongs to the company’s Executive Chairman Bill Ford but it’s still unclear what color is his example, as reported by AutoNews.

Raj Nair, Ford’s executive vice president drove a black GT with orange stripes and an orange interior off the production line which is going to be used as a marketing vehicle according to the same report.

Ford has limited the annual production run of the new GT to just 250 units, with the first 500 cars already sold via the company’s notorious application process. The company received more than 6,000 applications for these first 500 cars, which forced Ford into extending the production run of their supercar for an additional two years.

The company has yet to provide us with full technical details of the new GT with Ford quoting ‘over 600hp’ from its turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine. Pricing for the new GT is said to be somewhere in the range of mid-$400,000s.

    So when are the reviews for this car going to come out?

      hopefully soon

    • BGM

      Clarkson bought the original GT, fell in love with it during a test and got it for himself. And then was completely disappointed when it really didn’t work. I hope he takes a crack at this one on the Grand Tour and, more, I hope that Ford got it perfect this time. This car deserves to succeed!

    so which class/segment should we put that car into? i mean that last GT had competition against v12 ferrari and lambos.That one is aiming i think 570s,911turbo s,nsx etc. but price is about 488-huracan. so what?

    • Kaisuke971

      The Price (around 400k USD) is Aventador,F12 and 675LT territory not “base” Huracan 580 or 610… It looks like it aims at the sort of Huracan Performante, 488 “Speciale” and 675LT (or well we might as well say 720S too as it will come out next year apparently).
