Over the course of one month, more than 10,800 people showed interest in buying the all-new EcoBoost-powered, carbon fiber Ford GT supercar. By the end of the initial application window, Ford had received 6,506 fully completed applications from around the world. Nearly 32 percent of the completed applications were submitted in the closing six days of the window.

Hundreds of applicants submitted videos in hopes of strengthening their chances of being selected to be able to purchase one of the first 500 Ford GTs. These videos featured special effects, racing footage, garage tours, life stories, and children. Ford has begun the selection process and will begin notifying potential owners in the next 90 days.

“We’re excited by the amount of enthusiasm fans are showing for the new Ford GT,” says Dave Pericak, director, Global Ford Performance. “This initial application window is just one of many ways fans and potential owners will have to connect with our all-new supercar even before it hits the streets.”
