Ford has received over 7,000 orders for their new GT supercar.
The announcement comes less than two weeks after Ford released the GT configurator online, which undoubtedly accounted for a large portion of the 7,000 orders. Ford will be producing 250 units of the GT per year, meaning that demand far outweighs supply at this point.
Ford did not break out the order number into region or offer any indication as to which configurations are the most popular.
The first of the new GT are expected to be delivered to customers at the end of this year. Ford has yet to announce official pricing or performance figures but pricing is expected to start around $400,000 and power will likely push well above 600 horsepower.
As a reminder, beneath the skin of the 2016 Ford GT is Ford’s most powerful EcoBoost production engine ever and just as speculated, it is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 unit delivering more than 600 hp. Final specifications have yet to be released nor have performance times, but one can be assured the 2016 Ford GT will be faster off the line and feature a higher top speed than the previous-generation Ford GT. This engine makes use of dual fuel-injection as well as a low-friction roller-finger-follower valvetrain and is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle transmission.
