As you may be aware, Ford today announced that applications to purchase the new Ford GT supercar are now open, covering the first two years (500 units) of production.
With that, the automaker has also launched a configurator for the EcoBoost-powered Ford GT – and you don’t even need to get approved as a buyer to use it. The configurator is now live at www.FordGT.com.
Customizable options for the new Ford GT are understandably limited, with things like the twin-turbocharged, 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and the automatically-deploying rear wing/airbrake standard across all cars. However, curious minds have eight different exterior paint colors to try out, along with seven different racing stripe colors, or the option of no stripe at all (not recommended).
In addition, there are three distinct styles of forged aluminum wheels available, or two carbon fiber wheel styles, four interior color palettes, and three options to change the finish of the Ford GT’s carbon fiber body pieces (splitter, diffuser, and side skirts). Above, you can see that I’ve configured my Ford GT “correctly,” with Shadow Black paint, Alloy-colored stripes, and Silver-colored calipers encircled by matte-finish carbon fiber wheels.
There is yet another choice presented in the Ford GT configurator called “Series,” although upon selecting it, the web page simply reports that options for the category are “coming soon.” It looks like there will be two options there, possibly for different equipment groups – similar to the Track Pack/Technology Pack choice faced by buyers of the 2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang.
At any rate, be sure to check out the Ford GT’s new online configurator, and tweak to your heart’s content.
