Much like Ferrari does with its flagship cars, Ford took applications from hopeful car enthusiasts when deciding who would get their hands on the limited-run Ford GT. The response was overwhelming, with the American automaker receiving 6,506 applications from Ford fans all over the world.

Now, Ford has sent out its response to those 6,506 applicants. There were of course many more rejection letters sent out than acceptance letters, seeing as only 500 GTs will be built, so if you got one of the letters from Ford indicating you’re clear to purchase the car, you should feel very lucky.

FIA WEC Ford Chip Ganassi Racing driver Marino Franchitti posted a photo of one of the acceptance letters on his Instagram page today with the caption ‘some lucky people got emails like this today, we’re you one of the lucky ones? If so can I have a go when you get it?’

The 2017 Ford GT is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 producing over 600 horsepower mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Ford Performance boss Dave Pericak said last year prices would start at around US $400,000, making it significantly more expensive than the first-generation Ford GT, which debuted with a price tag of US $139,995.

However, not everyone was lucky to receive the acceptance letter, and while many Ford enthusiasts were optimistic for a slot, turns out Ford spread the allocations far and wide. Lucky people include YouTuber gamers as well as several celebrities.
