Good news! Ford has announced it will extend production of the Ford GT by two years, making it a total of four years production.
Hold up, do I need to re-apply?
If you happened to apply for the Ford GT the first time applications open then you have a second chance on getting your hands on the carbon-fibre sportscar. The next application process will open in 2018 but you won’t need to re-apply, you’ll just need to update your details in order to be in with a shout on getting those hallowed keys in your hand. 6,506 people applied for the Ford GT initially with around 500 of those coming from the UK.
“While we can’t build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of our most loyal Ford ambassadors,” says Dave Pericak, global director, Ford Performance. “We want to keep Ford GT exclusive, but at the same time we know how vital this customer is to our brand.”
“Ford GT has racing in its blood,” says Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, product development, and chief technical officer. “The road car and race car will live on, side-by-side, for the next four years – providing ample opportunity to test and prove innovative new technologies both on and off the track.”
Didn’t get accepted first time? Well there is hope for you yet.
