2017 Ford GT Ordering Process Requires Application, Will Be Special

2017 Ford GT

Interested in the new Ford GT? Well, better start getting your affairs in order, because you won’t merely be able to walk into your neighborhood Ford dealership and pick one up the same way you would, say, grab a new Focus. As first brought to light by Road & Track via Reddit, Ford will set up a process by which prospective owners may apply to purchase a 2017 GT; when accepted, these buyers will then be led through a special ordering procedure to be completed at a Ford GT–certified dealership nearest them.

The GT ordering process was confirmed to us by Ford. That means each customer, should their application be accepted (longtime Ford owners or those who bought the last GT will have an upper hand), will be paired with a specific car before being personally walked through a special ordering sequence. Details on that exact experience are forthcoming, but we imagine that it’ll be quite special, especially given how Ford plans to build just 250 GTs per year.



The final MSRP for the car is still up in the air—as is the number of dealerships selected to sell the GT—but we know the new supercar could cost as much as $400,000. We asked Ford whether customer fitment to the car (the GT will have fixed seats) will be part of the ordering process, and were told no; the adjustable steering column and pedals will be sufficient. Even so, the ordering experience should live up to the expectations of those shelling out huge sums of cash for an incredible car. Of course, we remain fixated solely on driving the new, apparently 700-hp-plus GT ourselves, something that won’t happen until closer to (or perhaps after) customer ordering begins early next year.
