Ford has announced its all-new GT supercar will be limited to a worldwide production run of just 250 units per year.
While this will guarantee that the GT is one of the most exclusive Fords ever, it will also be the most expensive.
Ford says the GT’s price will see it competing with the Lamborghini Aventador, and that means a price for US buyers of up to US$400,000 (AU$512,000) and £250,000 (AU$488,000) in the UK.
The Aventador is priced at over $760,000 in Australia, but local customers are unlikely be offered the chance to purchase a Ford GT in an official capacity.
The current GT’s predecessor saw around 4,000 units sold between 2004 and 2006, and as a production run for the new model stretching beyond 16 years is highly unlikely, there will be far fewer GTs on the road this time around.
The Blue Oval adds that over 90 percent of the Detroit ‘concept’ will be carried over into the production version, including its mid-mounted twin-turbo EcoBoost 3.5 litre V6 engine producing more than 447kW.
Power will reach the road via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.
While Ford is yet to officially confirm it, the carmaker is odds-on to return to the Le Mans 24-Hour race in 2016 to mark the 50th anniversary of its 1-2-3 victory with the ‘original’ GT40.
Later next year, the first GT customers are expected to take delivery of their cars.
