This is not a joke. Okay, it's kind of a joke.
If you aren’t going to the 2016 North American International Auto Show, aka the Detroit Auto Show, you better change your plans. The Ford booth is giving out a free GT just for visiting. Unfortunately you won’t be able to set a fast lap time in this free supercar because it is actually a snap kit model. Ford took a shrink ray to its flagship supercar and will be offering the toy model to kids who visit the stand at the show. The kit includes 14 pieces that can be put together in just a few minutes as well as a unique auto show stamp to designate a special edition.
Ford will also release a retail version of the model for $14.99 with 28 pieces to assemble. Ford has been giving these models away since 2013 which began with a Mustang and then an F-150 Raptor. While you may not be getting a $400,000 supercar, a $14.99 model for free is still a nice gesture.
