Ever since Ford created the virtual configurator at www.FordGT.com, nearly 200,000 fans have visited
According to Ford, they’ve already received 6,506 fully completed applications from people all around the world. This doesn’t mean they’ll each get one, but this was a one-month window to apply for the opportunity to purchase the all-new EcoBoost-powered, carbon-fiber supercar. And out of those applicant, hundreds of those registrants submitted videos with their applications to help bolster their chances to purchase one of the first 500 examples of the new Ford GT.
Ever since Ford created the virtual configurator at www.FordGT.com, nearly 200,000 fans have visited, which allowed everyone to build the Ford GT of their dreams online, even providing links to share images of their virtual build through social media outlets. The configurator’s default exterior color of Frozen White continues to be the favorite, followed by Liquid Blue.

“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.”
Ford is now reviewing applications from those 6,506 potential supercar buyers and will start notifying potential owners in the next 90 days. And those fortunate enough to be accepted, they can expect to receive their GT by the end of 2016.
