Only 40 examples are being built, and only owners can access the configurator.
Not many people will be lucky enough to experience the new Ford GT. Only 1,350 examples are planned for production, and you have to be selected by Ford as part of an application process to get the chance to buy one. Those who are worthy enough to order a Ford GT get access to a private online configurator that's different from the public configurator. Thanks to this video posted by car collector Manny Khoshbin - the same guy who showed us the ludicrous pricing on the Koenigsegg Jesko - we finally get to see what the private Ford GT configurator looks like.
Khoshbin hasn't ordered a standard Ford GT, either. Instead, he was lucky enough to place an order for the recently unveiled Heritage Edition, just to make us more jealous.
Limited to just 40 units, the Heritage Edition is a tribute to the legendary Ford GT40 Mark II that won the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1966 and features a Frozen White exterior with a Race Red livery and exposed carbon-fiber.
As Khoshbin browses the configurator, the customization options are limited, but this isn't surprising considering this is a limited-edition model. For starters, there are only two wheel design options: gold wheels are fitted as standard, which can be upgraded to carbon fiber wheels. Khoshbin opted for carbon fiber wheels since they complement the exterior trim. There are also no customization options for the cabin, so you're stuck with the Heritage Edition's standard red Alcantara seats, red paddle shifters, and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, although Khoshbin admits he would change any of these options anyway.
Unlike the public configurator, customers can view the exterior and interior with a fully controllable 360-degree camera. As Khoshbin discovered, it's not very user friendly. You can also watch some flashy animations that show off the limited-edition supercar, allowing you to open the doors, get a more detailed look at the cabin, and see the aerodynamics in action. Khoshbin waited three years before he could order his GT but his patience will pay off when he receives delivery of the Heritage Edition next year. Production of the Ford GT will then end in 2022.
