UK - The OEM has said it will re-open the application window for its GT in certain markets in order to make and sell around 1,350 additional units of the supercar. This, says Ford, is the result of high demand.
"The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with demand outstripping supply more than six-to-one,” said Hermann Salenbauch, director at Ford Performance. "By extending the Ford GT production run for a limited period, we’re able to maintain the exclusivity of the ultra-desirable supercar while offering the ownership experience to a greater number of customers in addition to the 80 Ford GT owners in Europe who’ve taken delivery of their bespoke car to-date.”
The second generation of the supercar first went into production in December 2016 at the Multimatic facility in Markham, Canada. It initially had a limited run of 1,000, while the next run will now be produced across the 2020 to 2022 calendar years.
AMS recently published a comment piece on Ford's near-term plans, which could include cutting back on its portfolio as well as its workforce.
