Ford GT Ordering Starts This Month

Ford Motor Company’s [NYSE:F] new GT supercaris already one of the most desirable cars on the planet, and that’s before the Blue Oval has listed any of the performance specs or even mentioned a price. That was to be expected, though, given the fact Ford will only offer the car for a limited time.

If you’d like to get your hands on one, Ford executives have revealed that an online application will go live sometime this month. However, it’s not strictly first come, first served as Ford will be vetting all orders to ensure the cars end up with genuine fans that will be out driving them.

“There’s a loyal following to the car,” Ford product chief Raj Nair told The Detroit News. “We want to prioritize people who are going to care about the car, keep the car and drive the car.”

Some of the criteria prospective buyers will have to meet include previous Ford ownership and even social media status. Furthermore, the lucky few allocated a build slot are also expected to sign legal documents stating they won’t sell the car for a minimum period to prevent them from being flipped straight away for huge profits. We saw Ferrari [NYSE:F] and McLaren attempt this with their own LaFerrari and P1 models, though versions of both cars still made their way onto the used car market shortly after their respective launches.

Ford hasn’t mentioned how many examples of the new GT it will build, though we’ve heard the number could be as low as 250 per year, with production to run for a couple of years like we saw with the previous-generation model. Meanwhile, the expected starting price is thought to be as much as $400,000.

Deliveries will commence towards the end of the year.
