Since its debut at the NAIAS, Detroit in 2015, the Ford GT has been in the news. Almost two years down the line, the first of the 2017 Ford GT has rolled off the production lines to celebrate 50 years of the Ford GT 40 Le Mans win in 1966. The first car is painted black with a red racing stripe at the centre and gets matching interior.

The Ford GT is a rear-engine supercar, a rarity from American car makers. Wrapped under a fully carbon-fibre body, the Ford GT runs a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 engine. It develops about 600bhp of power and with the weight under strict check, it will be one of the best American cars to drive. The expected price tag of close to an Indian-equivalent of Rs 2.4 crores putting it in the exclusive club.

Ford had announced a production run of only 500 units to start with, building one car every day. But with 6,500 applications and more coming in, Ford had to extend its run to 1000 units, to be built till 2020. The production till 2019 will go to the applicants in the first lot while applications for the 2020 lot will be invited in 2018.
