Ford to build an additional 350 GT supercars, extend production 2 years

Specifically, 350 additional copies will built with production now slated to stretch into 2022. "By extending the Ford GT production run for a limited period, we're able to maintain the exclusivity of the ultra-desirable supercar while offering the ownership experience to a greater number of customers".

Despite the long wait times for the GT, we're glad racecar subcontractor Multimatic is spending time making sure each auto is well-built, to avoid issues like the one hiccup they've had so far, with the rear wing dripping fluid on the exhaust. Ford says it received over 6,500 applications to buy the GT back in 2016 when the selection process began.

Ford Performance's vehicle line director, Hermann Salenbauch, dismissed potential concerns that some of the original customers might not like their "investment" be diluted by a 35-percent increase in production.

The market's thirst for the 216 miles per hour coupe was revealed in recent months when two made their way to auction blocks - despite their original owners signing agreements not to sell them during the first two years of ownership - and were sold for between $1.3 million and $1.8 million each. The original plan called for 250 cars to be built each year from 2017 through 2020.

Ford GT production hasn't been without issues either.

Ford also recently announced a new Ford GT Heritage Edition model that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the 1968 and 1969 Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 with a limited-edition Gulf Oil tribute racing livery, including a Heritage Blue and Heritage Orange paint scheme.

From 2020 to 2022, another 350 Ford GTs will roll out of the Multimatic plant in Canada that's responsible for assembling the vehicle.

The Ford GT makes 647 horsepower from a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost 3.5-litre V6 and can hit 100 km/h from zero in 4.0 seconds, moving on to a top speed of 348 km/h.
