As of last night, Ford has officially stopped accepting applications from US residents to purchase the new, 2017 Ford GT supercar.
Ford released a final tally of the number of complete buyer applications it received, revealing that a total of 6,506 persons submitted complete applications eligible for review. The reported number of Ford GT applicants had been higher back in April, but it turns out that count also included applications which had been started and then dropped, according to Car and Driver. Partially-completed Ford GT buyer’s applications number around 4,300.
Meanwhile, buyer’s applications in the Asia-Pacific region will remain open until May 24th, according to Edmunds.
In addition to the 10,800 or so complete and incomplete applications Ford received, the automaker says that nearly 200,000 fans have visited the online Ford GT configurator and built their own dream cars. The site continues to generate massive traffic.
This round of applications is meant to cover the first two years of Ford GT production, which will yield a total of 500 units (250 per year). The Ford GT is expected to start shipping out to dealers this December, with an anticipated price tag of around $400,000.
