Ford GT open for orders: Here’s how to obtain on the list

Before you assume you can just purchase a Ford GT, know there are some qualifications

Ford is prepared to get your money, and is selling off the first two years of production of its road-going Ford GT supercar. Hype has been building for the latest GT since its debut at the two thousand fifteen Detroit auto show, and was piqued with the announcement that the GT will create the fiftieth anniversary of its one-two-three Le Mans finish this year.

Well-publicized blunders plagued the racing variant of the GT at every outing this year, but that doesn’t seem to have dampened interest in the road version. If you've the funds -- around $400K, plus options -- ordering the six hundred thirty hp 3.5-liter V6 powered monster can be attempted using a portal on the Ford GT website. More importantly for those of us without deep pockets, Ford also launched the supercar's own online configurator.

Of course, after you configure and obtain approved (Ford insists you actually drive the car, not just stash it in a climate controlled garage for Barrett-Jackson two thousand forty-six) for your GT, you’ll be contacted by the Ford GT Concierge Service and whisked far for your bespoke experience.

“The purchase process for the Ford GT is as unique as our all-new supercar,” said Henry Ford III, global marketing manager, Ford Performance. “We realize GT customers are powerful ambassadors for Ford Motor Co., and we see forward to providing them a service as distinct as the car itself.”

Thankfully, building out your dream GT won’t cost you more than a few minutes of work time and printer ink if you determine to print a screenshot. There will be eight available exterior colors, with different stripes and a slew of other custom touches.
