    iOS devices with latest 8.3 should work just fine... Android devices only if you're lucky (depends on browser used, etc.).

    Thanks for posting but like I said before, I find the new Ford GT a little bit awkward looking...to say at least. The proportions just don't look right, maybe it looks better in person. Smiley

    This sounds like the issue (with Safari, maybe?) where the toolbar of the editor doesn't always load (timing issue?). Then, if you try to post something, you get an error about an undefined object. The workaround is, if you don't see the toolbar, reload before entering content in the editor.


    Re: The new Ford GT

    I tried Chrome and Firefox on my Android. Same result.

    It is looking much better in real life. I was pleasently suprised by it.

    Re: The new Ford GT

    Well, put my name on the list at my local dealer. They should get at least one, though it's unlikely I'd be the one to get allocation.

    Going to call a few dealers in Europe and get on the list there too being that I think this car will have less demand in Europe than the US. Europe barely even sells high performance American cars and Ford GTs were not at all popular there, so maybe this will be easier to get as well since EU will certainly get some allocation.

    Congrats and good luck!

    +1 Smiley  Any thoughts on color yet?


    Re: The new Ford GT

    Highly unlikely I'll actually get an allocation, but I'd go for gulf color scheme if possible, given the premium those cars sell at on the original GT. Will have to wait and see other colors though, so who knows.

    Again, there will only be 750-1000 cars total, 250 per year, and there are thousands of dealership owners at the front of the line. VIPs, Ford employees, etc.

    Once I actually get a chance to buy it, I'll start thinking about it more.

    Just out of curiosity, does your Ford dealer actually know anything (re. a defined process that will be followed to allocate the finite GTs)?  The speculators will be out in droves for this car, and I doubt that dealers will be able to resist tacking on a premium well over MSRP for their one or two allocations... Smiley

    Re: The new Ford GT

    They have no allocation information and merely have a list of those interested. They have no what kind of allocation they'll get, though I'm guessing probably a few. I think it's one of the biggest dealers in the country and it's been there for something ridiculous like 75 years. Headquarters is probably just a mile down the road and they did sell quite a few of the original Ford GT. Someone on the other forum mentioned that they handled a lot of the celebrity, VIP, and executive cars.

    Then again, there are like 4000 dealerships in the US alone, so needless to say, most will never see a car.

    They said if the dealer owners don't take them, and the execs/VIPs don't take them, they'll probably just go to the highest bidder.


    Re: The new Ford GT

    Great move! kiss

    I guess it will be a success if you keep it or sell it - either way you can't go wrong!


    Re: The new Ford GT

    Not sure the Ford GT will be officially available in Europe...

    IIIRC, the original was sold in Europe in small amounts. Probably not much demand in general. Europeans don't buy American performance cars for some reason. Maybe cost is much higher.

    Well, the real original Ford GT (or GT40) was in fact designed, developed and built in Europe, by Lola Cars in the UK. It was initially meant to be a racing car and particularly to beat Ferrari at Le Mans. Don't offhand know how many (if any) of them made it onto public highways as street-legal cars though.

    I think there were seven or eight.


    Re: The new Ford GT

    They built 87 Mk I cars England in 1966. Rules stated that at least 50 had to be made to qualify to run in the GT class. 31 were road legal.

     


    Re: The new Ford GT

    I guess I was thinking of the Mk III version

    "The Mk III was a road-car only, of which 7 were built.[1] The car had four headlamps, the rear part of the body was expanded to make room for luggage, the 4.7 litre engine was detuned to 335 bhp (250 kW), the shock absorbers were softened, the shift lever was moved to the center and the car was available with the steering wheel on the left side of the car. As the Mk III looked significantly different from the racing models many customers interested in buying a GT40 for road use chose to buy a Mk I that was available from Wyer Ltd."
