Ford has revealed a specially created website for customers interested in buying the new Ford GT, allowing them to configure a car.
While most of the site, launched today, is given over to explaining the ethos behind the V6-engined supercar, which made its debut at the Detroit motor show early last year, the site has raised questions over two so-called ‘special editions’ of the model.
Customers can configure the exterior and interior look of the new GT using the configurator, but a separate menu lists space for two special edition variants, with the words ‘coming soon’ listed alongside.
As with most new high-end vehicles, it’s highly likely that Ford will produce a ‘launch edition’ version of the car – these models will be the first off the production line, and will be strictly limited in number but will offer a high specification.
The second special variant is likely to be inspired by Ford's history at Le Mans, and by the racing version of the car, which competes in the World Endurance Championship.
Both special models are likely to cost significantly more than the standard car, which is tipped to cost just over half a million euros in Europe (around £400,000).
Ford’s new configurator website allows potential customers to submit applications to own a GT – with the aim being to find customers who will “celebrate the Ford brand.” A total of 500 vehicles, encompassing the first two years of GT production, are all that have been allocated so far.
