The EcoBoost twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 makes more than 600 horsepower in street form, and is actually derived from the architecture that has powered IMSA Daytona-class endurance-racing prototypes.
The newest car is set to take that raucous engine racing in the United SportsCar Championship and FIA World Endurance Racing.
And that close relationship between race and road car is just one of the many reasons this car will be such a coveted item when it finally hits dealerships. As such Ford has a special process for ordering the $350,000 limited-run supercar.
The cars will be assigned based on a customer application process, with priority going to current Ford GT owners and customers with a loyal history of purchasing Ford vehicles.
This is all to bring customers a personalized experience, but also so that dealers and exotic car brokers don’t bump out a worthy prospective buyer, would actually care for the car for many years, rather than make a quick buck turning it around.
