“We’re excited by the amount of enthusiasm fans are showing for the new Ford GT. This initial application window is just one of many ways fans and potential owners will have to connect with our all-new supercar even before it hits the streets”, states Dave Pericak, Global Ford Performance Director.

Out of the 6,506 applications that have been received, only 500 applicants will take possession of the Ford GT. Selected applicants will be notified by email around July. Applicants will have a 120-hour period to respond to five emails that will be sent, those that do not respond will lose their spot. Ford will also contact an undetermined about of people to be on the waiting list to help replace those that did not respond within the required amount of time. Performance specs for the Ford GT or the final price tag have yet to be released. Industry experts expect the Ford GT to sell for around $400,000.
