Thanks to Ford, you can now configure a 2017 GT supercar to your exact taste with paint colors, wheel selection, and options—and if you have the means, you’re also able to order one. Sort of.
The reborn GT has an awful lot of technology, performance, and sex appeal wrapped up in its wind-shaped carbon fibre body. Where else are you going to buy a brand-new 600-plus horsepower supercar that’s powered by a 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine…with no hybrid components in sight?
If it had the Prancing Horse or a Porsche crest on its flanks, it wouldn’t be an easy car to get ahold of—but with just 500 cars to allocate in the first two years, Ford is taking a page out of the Ferrari playbook in how it deals with pre-orders.

It’s open to everyone, of course, but Ford is taking a closer look at applicants who, in its words, “who will celebrate [the] Ford brand”.
Along with this process is a Ford GT Concierge Service for owners, and, assuredly, a ton of things to do once deliveries begin. A track day with a few dozen of these buzzing around would be a sight to behold…
