Ford is going to build another 350 GT supercars

Ford Is Making Another 350 GT Supercars To Satisfy Incredible Demand

Ford has already allotted almost 700 cars, and the order books will open on November 1 for the final run. Specifically, 350 additional copies will built with production now slated to stretch into 2022.

"The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with initial demand outstripping supply by more than six-to-one", stated Ford Performance director Hermann Salenbauch, in Ford's release.

Just like the first time around, interested buyers will have to submit a lengthy application in order to be selected for a slot to buy a Ford GT. With 1,350 being the new total spread out over a six-year period, we suspect there will still be plenty of unhappy campers and impatient applicants. Salenbauch says that building the carbon-fiber GT is very complicated, hence the low production volumes.

From 2020 to 2022, another 350 Ford GTs will roll out of the Multimatic plant in Canada that's responsible for assembling the vehicle. Ford also recently issued a recall for the GT over a potential hydraulic leak that could lead to a fire, with almost all production models affected.

Ford will be reopening ownership applications for the supercar, but instead of offering up 1,000 cars like it did when the auto was initially released, only another 350 will be built this time, according to Autoblog.

Besides this, Ford is also re-opening the application window to customers hoping to join the exclusive group of GT owners starting from November 8 for select global markets.

Successful European applicants from this last month-long round of, erm, applications, will get their cars in two- to four-year's time.

The Ford GT makes 647 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost 3.5-litre V6 and can hit 100 km/h from zero in 4.0 seconds, moving on to a top speed of 348 km/h.
