FORD GT MSRP SET AT $139k
The 2005 Ford GT, a supercar conceived to mark Ford Motor Company’s Centennial, will have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $139,995 when it goes into production in early summer 2004. "The Ford GT is a showcase of Ford Motor Company’s heritage, and its design and engineering capability," said Marty Collins, Ford Division general marketing manager. "For drivers who share our passion, it would be equally desirable at twice the price."

Re: Ford GT Commercial

Estimated Price of GT

Re: Ford GT Commercial

I've read from several sources that, money or not, these will be very hard to come by without "connections."
I remember the first year the Viper came out they were selling for double the sticker price if you could even get someone to sell one. Same thing with the ZR-1 Corvettes. (of course, both have proven that cars are rarely good investments)

Re: Ford GT Commercial

I'm still amazed that is has a truck engine in it and they can ask for $150,000.

Re: Ford GT Commercial

Hehe. It's as much a truck engine as the Viper's is. (Both truck block layout, but cast in aluminum)

Re: Ford GT Commercial

I saw the show on the development and they said it's the lightning engine with the cobra blower.
