You can start by applying online… For the Ford GT, the automaker will take another page from the Ferrari playbook when they open the application process for their minuscule 250 car run.
The vetting process has been designed to reward the longtime FoMoCo faithful, specifically existing GT owners. In addition to how blue you bleed, Ford is also wondering how often you’ll drive your 2017 GT (if you get one), how many Ford vehicles you’ve owned in the past and somewhat strangely- how active you are on social media?
According to The Detroit News, Ford execs are saying their rigorous process was put in place to ensure cars will actually turn wheels on tarmac, not kept in a museum or flipped to the highest bidder.
There’s a loyal following to the car,” Raj Nair, Ford’s product chief, said in an interview. “We want to prioritize people who are going to care about the car, keep the car and drive the car.”
As an insurance policy against scalping Ford will also ask applicants to sign a legal document guaranteeing they will not sell their new GT for a certain amount of time post purchase.
If the exclusive process makes it so we see more GTs on the street, we’re all for it.
