Were you hoping to snag one of the final Ford Performance Vehicles GT sedans, the new $77,990 GT F?

You’d better get a move on.

Announced early last month, the GT F will be limited to just 550 editions - and FPV reckons they’re on the verge of being all sold out before the car has even been revealed.

50 of GT F sedans will be headed to New Zealand, and a number of FPV dealers in both countries have already exhausted their allocations.

The final GT is understood to have been planned with around 60 percent equipped with automatic transmissions, but FPV says many buyers have asked for the manual option.

Speaking with TMR today, one dealer - who preferred to remain anonymous - said that all manual models are spoken for.

“They were snapped up very quick because the real keen fans were the first to call,” he said.

“The autos are selling fast too but they’re about all that’s left. Not many are willing to say no just because it’s not a manual.”

Manual transmissions have made up less than 30 percent of regular FPV GT orders, but it seems the bulk of GT F enquiries are coming from enthusiasts that prefer to row their own.

And while many have already laid down deposits sight-unseen, others are waiting to see the GT F in the flesh before making a decision.

Many have also requested specific build numbers - either as a matter of superstition or to match corresponding numbers in their existing collections.

One GT F buyer has purchased a new GT with every generation since the EB Falcon, with most of them having the build number 22.

FPV says that requests for specific build numbers alone has already topped 200, despite the GT F not even being available until June.
