Ford Will Soon Take Applications For More Hopeful GT Buyers


Missed out the first time around? Here's your second shot.

Ford will begin taking applications once again for perspective GT supercar owners in the fourth quarter of this year. The Ford GT costs at least $450,000 and yet the automaker received over 6,000 applications when the second-generation GT first went on sale.

Only 500 were accepted. Because of the better than expected popularity, Ford ultimately decided to extend GT production for another two years for a total of four. According to Motor Authority, Applicants not accepted in the first batch now have a second shot. They just have to update their previous submitted applications. Those who didn’t previously apply are also welcomed to do so.

Like before, Ford will use the exact same criteria when choosing owners, meaning the automaker is looking for those who’ll be ideal brand ambassadors. And, of course, they must agree not to sell their Ford GT for at least two years after taking delivery. Remember that whole John Cena debacle? Ford definitely wants to avoid a similar situation. This new round of applications is not to fill slots for previously accepted buyers who, for whatever reason(s), decided to drop out.

Those slots have already been filled from a waiting list consisting of others who applied the first time around. This new group of hopeful Ford GT owners will also be able to customize their cars to their liking, something Ford is more than happy to do. In fact, it’s counting on this.

As in previous model years, there will be a 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition that’ll commemorate the original Le Mans winning cars that defeated Ferrari beginning in 1966. Right now, we can’t confirm whether Ford plans to make any changes, likely technical, to the GT. If there are any, chances are they’ll be relatively minor.
