With 250 Ford GTs up for grabs at the end of this year, Ford is going to make sure they go those buyers who have the passion and will drive them.
The Detroit News reports that when Ford launches their site to apply to purchase the GT, there will be an extensive vetting process. To start, buyers will need to sign a document stating they will own the vehicle for a certain time - this to prevent an owner to quickly flip their GT for a nice profit. Then comes the application process which will take a bit of time and include questions such as how many Ford models they have owned, how active they are on social media, and how much they plan to drive it.
“There’s a loyal following to the car. We want to prioritize people who are going to care about the car, keep the car and drive the car,” said Raj Nair, Ford’s product chief.
If you are one of the lucky few who get approved for the first batch of GTs, you get VIP treatment throughout the process of building and be able to finish the purchase at a certified dealer.
