Ian James Poulter Shows His Matte Black 2017 Ford GT, Golf Clubs Won't Fit

The latest aficionado to have joined the 2017 Ford GT owner's club is Ian James Poulter. The golfing star has now turned to Instagram to show us his Blue Oval supercar.

Speaking of colors, we'll mention that the athlete went for a matte black theme, which makes the GT look like a weapon. And if we also mention the carbon wheels of the beast, taking our eyes off the Ford halo car becomes impossible.

The cabin also shows an all-dark spec, mixing multiple materials for a bad-to-the-bone look.

The VIP's presence behind the wheel of the 2017 Ford GT is not a random happening - when the automotive producer selected the customers for the twin-turbo V6 supercars, the carmaker included plenty of famous names on the list, aiming to keep the go-fast machine under the spotlights.

And one of the VIPs that are currently waiting to take delivery of their uber-Fords is Deadmau5. However, the Canadian music producer and DJ doesn't seem to mind the time invested in this, as, for instance, he's recently welcomed a McLaren 720S into his garage.

We'll remind you that Ford is only building 1,000 units of the new GT, at a rate of 250 units per year. So far, the company has only selected the first 500 clients for its velocity monster.

We should get to see Poulter putting the Ford GT to hooning work and thus serving as more than just the kind of brand ambassador we mentioned above. For one thing, the golfer's Instagram message shows clear hooning intentions: "Time to take some tread off of those @michelinusa tires,"

Oh, and by the way, make sure you use the swipe feature when checking out the Instagram post below, since the pro golfer took the time to post multiple images of his twin-turbo animal, as well as a piece of footage that shows the GT moving at parking pace.
