The Ford GT Production Run Extended – 350 More To Be Built!
The Ford GT started at a limited 1000 units, yet with demand outstripping supply Ford has decided to extend the production and build more of its GT supercars.
The Extended Production Run
The production of the Ford GT is being expanded to satisfy some of the overwhelming demand for the vehicle. Originally the GT was limited to 1000 units, but Ford has decided to extend the GT production run by a further 350 units to appease the unfortunate customers that didn’t get their hands on the first time.
To extend the production run regarding time will take an extra two years says, Ford. The aim is to improve the 7:1 supply ratio and in doing so offer more units to European buyers who up until now only have been granted 80 of the 1000 car units.
Any buyers in the European market looking to get their hands on a Ford GT will have to wait. Although, any cars in this later batch are not due to be built until at least 2020 and production will be running through 2022. For anyone wanting to join the queue, Ford is going has opened the online application for one month from November 1st.
The Ford GT is a very much modern day homologation race for the road. As it is designed first as a race car to win the Ford LeMans 24h race, on the 50th anniversary of its first victory, which it did and then was ‘productionised’ to be a road car.
Despite this extended of Ford GT production plans, there will still be many unlucky Ford GT customers who will miss out on the chance of owning Fords most extreme GT road car yet. If you have a ford or Ford GT and are planning on selling your car fast try out here.
