How To Buy A Ford GT
Want Ford's new supercar? You'd better have followers.
The new Ford GT is truly a world-class supercar: 600-plus horsepower, active aero, carbon fiber in all the right places—and a price tag north of $400,000. Naturally, with only a couple hundred built per year, Ford has to make prospective buyers jump through a few hoops.
Ferrari buyers already know what happens when a sports-car company values exclusivity above all: You can't just walk in off the street and buy the latest Ferrari; you have to have owned a few other models first.
Ford's got some demands to make on GT buyers, too: they have to have a strong Ford history, promise not to flip it (in the commercial sense), and they have to have a social media following. But is it fair for the Blue Oval people to turn a super-high-end sports car into an internet event?
That's what we're talking about on today's AFTER/DRIVE, with The Drive's Mike Spinelli and Michael Prichinello and Zac Moseley from Classic Car Club Manhattan.
