Ford boosts production of GT as demand outpaces production by 6-to-1
Ford to produce around 1,350 GT's to satisfy consumer demand
Ford are extending production of their GT supercar by approximately two years in order to meet consumer demand.
Born to rival the renowned high-performance sports cars of McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche, Ford designed the legendary 647-horsepower GT - the stylish, sporty supercar that delivers a top speed of 216mph thanks to it's twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine.
When the GT first entered production in December 2016, Ford decided a limited number of just 1,000 GT's would be produced across four years. However, due to incredible consumer demand, Ford are extending production for a further two years and increasing its production deadline from 2020 to 2022. This will see a total of 1,360 GT's delivered worldwide.
Director of Ford Performance, Hermann Salenbauch, said; “The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with demand outstripping supply more than six-to-one. By extending the Ford GT production run for a limited period, we’re able to maintain the exclusivity of the ultra-desirable supercar while offering the ownership experience to a greater number of customers in addition to the 80 Ford GT owners in Europe who’ve taken delivery of their bespoke car to-date.”
Where do I sign up?
This November, Ford will re-open the online application process for the GT for just one month (link below). This will allow a few lucky applicants to work with the Ford GT Concierge Service for a personalised purchase experience before receiving their dream supercar.
However, if you still love the idea of owning a GT but can't quite afford it, you can still design one of your own via the websites supercar configurator... one can still dream right?!
Do you think Ford has made the right decision to increase demand or do you think the number of GT's should have remained more limited? Vote below and leave your thoughts in the comments...
