Ford Increasing Production Of GT Supercar


Ford Motor Company is giving customers another opportunity to own one of their famous GT supercars after sign-ups quickly surpassed the 1,000 cars slated for production in 2016. Ford will now increase production to 1,350 Ford GTs, giving 350 more people to opportunity to own the Ford supercar.


Ford Performance Director Hermann Salenbauch said the move comes after an “unprecedented” response from Ford customers who made clear the strong demand for the Ford GT.


“The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with initial demand outstripping supply by more than six-to-one,” Salenbauch said. “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.”


The high-performance supercar is a street-legal machine designed to test the limits on the street and on the track. The GTs 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine is capable of producing a massive 647 horsepower, while its light carbon fiber body helps it reach a maximum speed of 216 mph.


Its sleek design makes use of an aerodynamic shape and lightweight body help to further enhance the vehicle’s performance capabilities, making it a fearsome supercar on and off the track.


Interested customers can apply for a chance to own a Ford GT beginning Nov. 8 through FordGT.com. The application window will last for 30 days.
