    Re: The new Ford GT

    Isn't Geiger Cars the owner of this Ford GT? (M-GC license plate if I read it right)? This is actually a US car dealer in Munich, one (if not the) biggest one in Germany or at least the best known one in Germany. Poor guy...

    I think the owner is "muc.collector" on instagram

    How do you know? 

    Driver (owner?) is 52 years old and was caught by the fire with his son in the car. They both escaped unharmed.

    Car had only run for 70 km...it was brand-new. Smiley

    Since the car had M-GC license plates, I still suspect it was either someone from the Geiger (US car dealer Munich) family or he got the car for a test-ride (maybe a very good customer who wanted to try it first before he buys it?). Or, another possibility: He bought it from Geiger Cars used and drove it over to his home (Rosenheim?) with the Geiger Cars Munich license plates.

    Did that muc.collector guy post photos of the burned car on Instagram? It is a private account and I don't want to subscribe.

    No matter who owns the car, it seems it was a brand-new one. What a shame. Smiley Maybe a factory issue? Or maybe it was damaged during transport?

    Saw this one on the way back from Le Mans, driven by Jason Watt and his wife. Really cool.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    He posted pics of the car before the fire and also uploaded a pic (all black though) stating that he survived the fire...

    But as you said, no matter what, it is a said story.

    So it is probably him...still weird the thing with the 70 km and the Munich license plates.

    But as you said, no matter what, it is a said story.

    Yep, very sad. I hope Ford is generous and gives him a new car (after the insurance stuff is sorted out).

    @RC - apparently our friend "Gerd" has the chance to be co-pilot on a Ford Event next week the new GT. They also said that it will be now possible again to "apply for an ownership".

    Sounds great (Gerd). Smiley

    Yes, 350 more cars but they are way too expensive. I like the Ford GT a lot, even with the engine it has (surprisingly) because it seems to sound nice but the price tag is just nuts for the performance it delivers.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    500k for the car seems high as it doesn't have that supercar prestige. And know, as the exclusivity is going lower, it feels even higher ;) However - the past shows, that the limited GT always been traded to higher prices after a while. So it still may be a great collector car. However, maybe more for the US than for the European collector.

    I remember the time when I got offered a used Ford GT for 70k EUR... Smiley Now they go for 200-300k. Smiley

    2019 Ford GT Carbon Series Breaks Cover, Future Owners Already Shortlisted


    This is a track-focused model, said to be 18 kg (40 lbs) lighter than the regular street-legal versions. The decrease in weight has been made possible by applying a polycarbonate rear hatch with extra venting, but also carbon fiber wheels with titanium nuts and a titanium exhaust system.

     

    Despite the weight loss, this car still retains important comfort features such as air conditioning and an infotainment system.

     

     

    Ford says that approximately one 2019 Ford GT Carbon Series unit can be built each week, and that they’re only available for already-approved customer applicants.

    Additionally, Ford will also open the final owner application process on November 8, for select global markets.
