Ford GT to cost $400G

Published March 04, 2015·

Ford’s new supercar will come with a supersize price.

Ford Performance director Dave Perciak confirmed at the Geneva Auto Show today that the mid-engine coupe will cost about the same as a Lamborghini Aventador, roughly $400,000, according to Motor Authority.

That would make the 600 hp two-seater the most expensive vehicle Ford has ever made by a wide margin. Its predecessor, the 2005 Ford GT, sold for $150,000.

Ford made 4,038 of those over two model years, but Pericak says it’ll only build about 250 of the new GTs each year.

Exactly. There are several other cars I would rather spend 400k on. Which is too bad because I love looks and sounds. It will be interesting to see how this GT fares against the high end exotics now that the price puts them in more direct competition. It wont surprise me if Ford can sell these cars fast on the very limited production though.

I would buy it (given the means) with a 600+ hp 4 - cylinder turbo, just to post on forums and read the numerous posts proclaiming how much it sucks . . .

If you look at them as homologation cars, with no economy of scale, you see where that price is coming from. 250 a year is Pagani levels of volume. That crap ain't cheap. Don't know if this direction is the best way to go, but I can see how they got themselves here.

Reality check. Exotics command exotic prices. $400k--yeah that's more than my house costs, but you could buy two GT's for less than a 918 Spyder, or two GT's a Z/28 Camaro and a Hellcat for less money than a sheik will pay for a Bugatti Veyron.

Maybe the Porsche 918 Spyder is more in line with what members of this board think of as a performance car, it actually has a 4.6L V8, just like my old 06 Mustang GT. Of course, it costs a little more. $845,000 will get you into the base model. If you want an upgrade to the fancy wheels (Weissach package) that 887 horsepower beauty can be yours for the modest sum of $929,000

How about a Konigsegg Regera? It's not really a race car, though. And it's a hybrid--kind of like a fancy Prius. Of course it's quite capable of ripping off a 0-60 run of 2.8 seconds and the manufacturer claims a top speed of 255 mph. So, I guess you could call it a performance hybrid--but $400K might not even qualify as a down payment. The asking price is $1.9 Million.

$400K is a lot to spend for a DD with a V6--but for a street legal race car, is it really a huge sum of money? Has no one in the Mustang community ever heard of a company call Porsche? The 911 has been one of the most successful performance cars on the street and on the track over the last 50 years--BTW with a 6 cylinder engine.

Does anyone know what a 911 GT1 is? It is a (barely) street legal Porsche with a 600-hp turbo 6 that has been clocked at 205 on the long straight at Le Mans. If 600-HP and 205 mph doesn't sound like a performance car to you, put down the pipe and step away from the keyboard. Price--search the web for the street versions of the 911 GT1. You might find a used one for sale at under $1.7 million, some have sold for over $2.3 million--and you think $400K for a street legal race car with a turbo 6 is too high?

These fancy toys (including the GT) are too expensive for my wallet. But I appreciate what Ford has attempted with the new GT. (It isn't meant to compete with the Chevy Corvette.) The turbo six and and its lightweight body is Ford's attempt to go hunting world class competition at Le Mans. Like the 911 GT1 it was not built to be a street car--it was built to go racing, but the rules require a street version for homologation.

Poor man? Ha.

Granted the 2005-2006 GT was underpriced at $150,000 given their current values, it will be interesting to see if the prices for these cars will eventually equalize somewhere in the 300k range. The '16 GT should be a better car, so it should cost more, but it even further distances itself from the previous generation with the huge price jump and devastatingly low production numbers. I think the 05-06 GT will continue to be in high demand even after the new car arrives.

I used to love the GTR but all I've ever heard from drivers is that it's poorly made. It's just a fast Altima.
