We saw the 2017 Ford GT show off its curves at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show but we didn’t know one of the key things about it, the price tag. Finally Ford announced that the new 2017 Ford GT will cost around $400,000.
The automaker plans to start the production in late 2016, and the beautiful 2017 Ford GT, will most probably hit the market in select countries just in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ford’s historic 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans victory with the original GT40.
A true contender of the Lamborghini Aventador
Although there are no confirmed numbers and statistics about official performance and pricing, Dave Pericak, Ford’s performance chief stated that we would see a price tag that will most definitely be in competitive range of the Lamborghini Aventador.
This is why everybody thinks that the 2017 Ford GT will be around the approaching sum of $400,000. This shouldn’t come as a surprise because the price corresponds with the planned production number that is expected to reach only around hundreds.
“Because this is a very different car, we consider this to be the next chapter in the GT story, and we didn’t want to do what we’d already done. This is a supercar unlike any we’ve ever built before. The technology that’s going to reside in this car, the engineering that we’re throwing at it, we’re really raising the game.” – says Pericak.
The latest GT that Ford made was actually built in around 4,000 cars with a starting price for each one of them at around $150,000. But if you put in all of the premiums at which they later got sold off, that version of the supercar obviously was worth a lot more than that figure.
That’s why this time the automaker plans with the new 2017 Ford GT are to make this beauty a lot more expensive and in fewer numbers.
Ford GT a 600 horsepower monster
There is only one question that comes in mind when we sum up all of the information we have so far and that is if this price-tag is the right move for the 2017 Ford GT.
The carbon-fiber construction with the help of the 600 horsepower engine can make it live up to the hype. And if speculators are going to drive up the actual sale prices, we don’t see why Ford shouldn’t get what the product is worth. We just might see who the lucky people will be to have their hands on a $400,000 monster 2017 Ford GT.
