Once upon a time, the iconic super car was owned only by those with millions of £££ in their bank accounts, but the 2017 Ford GT super car is taking things to the next level.
Not only do you need to have £300,000 to buy one, but you also need to have a mega social media presence, too.
Indeed, the new Ford GT is so exclusive that anyone who wants to get their mitts on one will have to “beg” in the form of a lengthy process which requires you to have a substantial number of Twitter followers, make a video – and prove your devotion to Ford.
The Exclusive 2017 Ford GT
The Ford GT super car in question will be released in 2017. It will come armed with a dual-turbo 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 plant and will produce some 600bhp.
How long will it take to get from rest to 62mph? Less than 3 seconds.
The car will be released fifty years after it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans way back in the mid-sixties.
To preserve its exclusivity, Ford will sell just 500 in nineteen countries during its first two years of existence.
This means only 15 are likely to be sold in the UK. Whoever does manage to get their hands on one will be owning “one of the rarest Ford products ever.”
The application process has just opened, and you need to be personally approved by the company to be in with a chance.
You will need to describe your relationship with the brand, both past and present, as well as produce a YouTube video in which you make your pitch.
You will also need to supply details of how many people follow you on Twitter.
And if you do get lucky, you will need to sign a contract agreeing not to sell your GT instantly.
It was never this hard to buy a Corsa.
He believes that words can take on a transformative aspect and wants to help people make better decisions today.
His influences as a writer include Hunter S Thompson and Jack Kerouac, while among his interests outside writing are music, art, foreign films and football.
He’d one day like to own a Tesla, and still holds a candle for the Ford Capri.
