    Ford extends GT supercar production following high demand

    - Ford will produce around 1,350 GT supercars as demand outstrips supply six-to-one

    - GT application window to re-open for one month from November 8

    - The brand has also announced GT Heritage Edition model to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40

    Ford has announced that the production of their cutting edge GT supercar will be extended by approximately two years, to meet high customer demand. The American automaker will reopen the application window to customers in selected markets, including the UK, for one month, beginning November 8, 2018.  

    Ford aims to deliver approximately 1,350 Ford GTs to customers worldwide. “The response has been unprecedented, with demand outstripping supply more than six-to-one,” said Hermann Salenbauch, director, Ford Performance. “By extending the Ford GT production run for a limited period, we’re able to maintain the exclusivity of the ultra-desirable supercar while offering the ownership experience to a greater number of customers in addition to the 80 Ford GT owners in Europe who have taken delivery of their car to-date.”

    Production of the Ford GT began in December 2016, following the announcement of a limited run of 1,000 vehicles across four years. Successful European applicants from the extended production volume will be eligible for vehicles produced in the 2020 to 2022 calendar years.

    Powered by a twin-turbocharged, 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine, the Ford GT’s carbon fibre architecture and active aerodynamics help to achieve a top speed of nearly 350kmph. Ford also recently announced a new Heritage Edition model that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning GT40 with a limited-edition Gulf Oil tribute racing livery, including a Heritage Blue and Heritage Orange paint scheme.
