When the new Ford GT debuted in January at the Detroit Auto Show, there wasn’t much for the automotive community to go on. In other words, Ford gave us a great car but didn’t tell us anything about it. Well, now the Blue Oval has gotten rid of some of the ambiguity by telling us production and pricing figures.
Today at the Geneva Motor Show, Ford announced that the price of the new car would be on par with the Lamborghini Aventador- a whopping $400,000, approximately. Now, much of the automotive community is likely shocked at this, and perhaps with good reason. Considering the last generation of Ford GT sold for a seemingly paltry $149,000, many are wondering what could have caused the price increase.
Also announced were the production figures, which have been confirmed to be exactly 250 units per year, for a yet unspecified number of production years. So, the good news in this is that it looks like the model is here to stay for at least a few years.
The price increase has baffled many, and much of the automotive world is wondering what may have caused the nearly $250,000 price jump. Well, the best guess we can venture is that the engineering and design work on the new car, which was cutting edge and comparatively novel over the previous generations, got to be quite expensive.
Regardless of the price, what people want to know even more is the power output and other performance figures of the car, which have not yet been announced by Ford; of course, we’re still anxiously waiting and so are many potential buyers. They can’t keep us in the dark forever though.
