    • This is the 2017 Ford GT purchase application which Ford uses to decide allocation and weed out flppers

      Part of the problem with exotic cars is that they are only open a select group of people. Some exotics are more sought out and rare than others. At the $450k+ range the Ford GT is expected to slot in at along with its limited sub-1000 unit production there is going to be competition to secure a Ford GT among the very wealthy.


      The problem is not whether all of these wealthy that can afford the car as there are more buyers than Ford GT's being produced. The problem is the guy who buys it, flips it, and pockets a couple hundred grand simply for having the means the buy it in the first place.

      Ford wants to stop this from happening. They want to reward repeat customers. They want to make sure the car is actually going to be driven. Hence the application below which Ford will use to determine who gets the privilege of buying a GT.

      The questions are what you would expect. They ask if you are a collector, how many cars are in your collection, how many are Ford/Lincoln vehicles, if you are a repeat customer, if you owned the previous generation GT, if you are involved with the company, etc.

      It looks like if you bought a previous generation GT and still have it all you have to do is plug in your VIN. They definitely are putting an emphasis on previous GT ownership.

      They even go so far as to ask for social media accounts and optionally for the applicant to upload a picture and describe what they plan to do with the car.

      Will this application process work? We will see. It's not like they can stop you from lying on it. No doubt somebody is going to flip a GT anyway. It's hard to say no to hundreds of thousands of dollars for free even when super wealthy to begin with.
