Looking to buy one of the year’s most eagerly awaited new models? Ford opened up the order bank for its new GT supercar today, and it expects to have a long line of potential owners signing up.
That said, don’t expect the sort of frantic rush that followed the debut of the new Tesla Model 3 two weeks ago. Ford has plans to produce far fewer GTs – at more than 10 times the price. And Ford plans to put up some hurdles that will limit who is likely to actually get one of the new supercars.
“The purchase process for the Ford GT is as unique as our all-new supercar,” said Henry Ford III, the global marketing manager for Ford Performance. “We understand GT customers are strong ambassadors for Ford Motor Company, and we look forward to providing them a service as distinct as the car itself.”
