Unfortunately for MotorMartin the opportunity to own the all new Ford GT40 has probably already passed but that hasn’t stopped the top floor of MotorMartin Towers being excited to see that the first road-going version of the all-new 2017 Ford GT has rolled off the line. An event that heralds the beginning of production of the long-awaited halo car from Ford Performance.
In this new, low-volume assembly facility at Multimatic in Markham, Ontario, Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president, global product development, and chief technical officer, marked today’s milestone by driving a Ford GT off the assembly line.
“When we kicked off 2016, we had two primary objectives for our Ford GT supercar – to excel at Le Mans, and to start deliveries before year-end,” shared Nair with MotorMartin recently, “We’ve achieved both.”
“For everyone involved in designing and developing this car, including all of our employees and suppliers, this is a moment to celebrate,” he adds. “The all-new Ford GT is a showcase of our strength in innovation and our commitment to delivering more for our customers – especially related to light-weight materials, aerodynamics and EcoBoost® engine technologies.”
Ford GT was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in January 2015. Less than two years later, Ford Performance is now delivering the first cars to customers around the globe. And what a New Years present that will be for those lucky few.
