Today, however, Ford confirmed at a presentation in Dearborn, Michigan, that it will be build a few more GTs than planned.

"The response to our Ford GT has been unprecedented, with initial demand outstripping supply by more than six-to-one".

Despite the long wait times for the GT, we're glad racecar subcontractor Multimatic is spending time making sure each auto is well-built, to avoid issues like the one hiccup they've had so far, with the rear wing dripping fluid on the exhaust.

Ford is set to re-open its final owner application process for the Ford GT from November 8 for 30 days. Owners for the first two model years have been selected, and production of 2019 vehicles has been designated for applicants who were on the waitlist for the first two batches of supercars.

When it was first announced, there were only plans to build 500 examples of the GT. But what does the extended production run mean for the GT's future collectors' status? The longer production run stems from the unexpectedly low number of cars the Multimatic facility in Markham, Ontario has been able to turn out; it's previously failed to meet its 250-cars-per-year goals, producing only 138 in 2017.

Dearborn, Mich., Oct. 18, 2018 - Ford Motor Company is increasing Ford GT production to 1,350 vehicles after more than 6,500 applicants raced to sign up for the original 1,000 cars allotted in 2016 - even before the auto recaptured LeMans glory later that year. Successful applicants will work with the Ford GT Concierge Service for a personalised purchase experience of cars produced in the 2020 to 2022 calendar years.

Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6, making 470kW and 731Nm.
