Ford has finally opened up its order books for the second generation GT. The supercar will be limited to a total of 500 units, with an asking price of around $450,000 (Rs. 2.98 crore). The catch is, that Ford will be handpicking their customers, similar to an exotic car manufacturer we are all familiar with *cough* Ferrari *cough*.
To become a potential owner of the supercar, Ford has a web-based form to be filled out and sent to them. Depending on your credentials, they will decide whether they deem you worthy of buying the GT. The criteria for selection are plenty, ranging from the number of Ford cars owned, to whether the customer already owns the previous GT. Another deciding factor is whether the customer plans to drive the GT on a regular basis, or just as a collectors' item.We presume the former would greatly help the customer's chances of getting into Ford's good books.
The GT is going to be offered in eight colours, with an option for stripes. It comes with a 3.5-litre twin-turbocharged EcoBoost petrol engine producing a yet undisclosed amount of power. Ford has only confirmed that it will be above 608PS, which is a healthy 50PS over the previous GT. With an all carbon-fibre construction, the new GT is bound to have an impressive power-to-weight ratio.
For those who can't afford the new GT, there's always the online configurator to help build the car of your dreams.
