Still want to get your hands on an all-new Ford GT? For those that did not made the cut, we have some good news for you. Ford Motor Company has just announced that they will be extending the production run of the GT from 1,000 examples to 1,350.
Yes you read that right, another fresh batch of Ford GTs will be made by the automaker. Ford decided to make another 350 units of the GT after more than 6,500 applicants signed up to be one of the potential owners of the original 1,000 units alloted for 2016.
“The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with initial demand outstripping supply by 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,” said Hermann Salenbauch, Ford Performance Director.
Starting November 8, Ford will reopen the final owner application process for select markets around the world. Prospective owners can submit their applications for 30 days at FordGT.com. Those that will be chosen will be contacted by Ford GT Concierge Service for a personalized purchase experience of the cars that will be produced in the 2020 – 2022.
First revealed during the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, the new-generation GT features the familiar styling of the original Le Mans-winning race car, along with a new twin-turbo EcoBoost powerplant that cranks out more than 600 PS. The body, on the other hand, is almost entirely made out of lightweight carbon fiber to keep the weight down.
Expect more of Ford's flagship supercar to hit the roads soon.
