Ford Replies to 2017 GT Applications, Here Are the Approval/Rejection Letters

About three months ago, those who had Lamborghini Aventador money and wanted to spend it on a 2017 Ford GT started submitting their applications to the Blue Oval. It was one hell of a complicated process (aimed at keeping speculators at bay) and now the automaker has sent out the approval and denial letters to those prospective owners.

With 6,506 people applying for an initial batch of just 500 cars, the selection process was anything but easy and it's going to make a lot of folks less than happy.

Actually, we're dealing with three types of categories here. We have the enthusiasts whose efforts got them to the podium and those who were left out, but the third type involves those who have been added to the "priority" waiting list - we have to thank DragTimes for this piece of info.

This obviously means the Blue Oval is keeping the carbon fiber door open for more units of the supercar to be built once the initial madness settles down.

While this may sound like just another piece of news to those whose heart doesn't pump gas instead of blood, you can imagine that being ready to spend north of $400,000 on a car that can be purchased in such a manner can easily make an aficionado weak in the knees. Oh, and let's not forget the extra pressure added by the Ford GT's Le Mans debut win.

In fact, multiple potential GT buyers from the Ford GT forum got weak in the... fingers and started posting the emails they received from the automaker.

Since the three types mentioned above can basically be split in Yes/No answers, you'll find both types of letters in the image gallery.

Many of these people, DragTimes included, will document each and every step of the acquisition process, so we'll be back with more info on this velocity topic as soon as we get out keyboards on it.
