Initially announced to be limited to 500 units, the number available is set to be now around double that. Following on from an announcement that the new GT will race in the World Endurance Championships for a four year period, Global Director of Ford Performance commented “While we can’t build enough Ford GTs for everyone who has applied, we are going to produce additional vehicles in an effort to satisfy more of our most loyal Ford ambassadors.”

Ford has also announced that the new GT model will be available in eight ‘bright’ colours as well as several themes that match the interior and racing stripe details. Talking about the themes available Ford Design Manager Barb Whalen stated: "We walked a fine line with the colour and materials in this vehicle – infusing energy through use of colour and balance while working to ensure the raw appeal of a performance car still shines through. Everything in the all-new Ford GT was intentionally designed to express ultimate performance.”
