How To Order Your 2017 Ford GT
The new 2017 Ford GT is set to become one of Ford's most desirable and collectable cars in recent years. We know that it will feature a full carbon fiber body and that it will be powered by a 3.5 liter turbo charged engine making upwards of 700 horsepower in its final trim. Production is set to start at Ford's dedicated facility in Markham, Ontario in late 2016 and at this time production is set to only 250 cars a year.
Ordering one of these "American Exotics" may prove to be a challenge this time around and will not be a simple matter of going to a dealership and laying down ridiculous wads of cash on the salesman’s desk. Oh no this time around you will have to be pre-approved just to place an order for one!
Ford will set up a process where prospective owners can apply to purchase a 2017 GT; when and IF accepted, buyers will then be led through a special ordering procedure to be completed at a Ford GT–certified dealership nearest to them.
This means that each customer, should their application be accepted (we believe longtime Ford owners or those who bought the last GT will have an upper hand), will be paired with a specific car before being personally walked through a special ordering sequence. Ford is discouraging dealers from accepting deposits as there is no guarantee prospective buyers will have their application accepted – doing it this this way Ford say can rule out any disappointment or discontent.
Applications are expected to start being accepted in early 2016, details on that exact experience are still not available but will be forthcoming, and we imagine that it’ll be quite special, especially given how Ford plans to build just 250 GTs per year.
The final MSRP for the car is still up in the air—as is the number of dealerships selected to sell the GT—but we know the new supercar could cost as much as $400,000 plus!
