More than 6000 People Submit Applications to Purchase All-New Ford GT

In the middle of April, Ford Motor Company opened the initial window to submit applications to own the all-new Ford GT supercar. That window closed this past Friday, but not before 10,800 people expressed their interest. Ford received 6,506 fully completed applications to purchase the new EcoBoost-powered, carbon fiber supercar.

In hopes of increasing their chances of being chosen, hundreds of registrants included videos with their applications. The videos featured racing footage, lighting effects, garage tours, life stories, and children. Only 500 Ford GTs are available for purchase during this release. Ford is now reviewing the applications and will begin notifying potential buyers within the next three months. The all-new Ford GT is expected to begin arriving in customer garages before the end of the year.

“We’re excited by the amount of enthusiasm fans are showing for the new Ford GT,” says Dave Pericak, director, Global Ford Performance. “This initial application window is just one of many ways fans and potential owners will have to connect with our all-new supercar even before it hits the streets.”
