According to The Detroit News, Ford is supposedly going to apply a Ferrari-esque vetting process.
With several celebrities and people with all of the money offering blank checks and throwing their weight around, Ford has responded to all of them simply. "Apply online." Which is ballsy.
Being of performance and enthusiast ilk, Ford is making sure that the 250 GT's will go to those that will enjoy their cars for what they are and not just park them in the garage, museum, or try to flip them for big cash. In Feb, when the application process goes live, part of the application will have questions like, "How many Fords have you owned?" "How active are you on social media?" "What is your intended use of the GT?" All of this leads me to believe that Ford is embracing the importance of these cars and leveraging it as well.
If you are not going to post photos of this car and do rad ****, you don't get to own it. I know that most of the internet will say, "Hell yeah, I would hoon the **** out of that thing..." but most of the internet doesn't have a single, thin dime invested into the tires, transmission, body work, etc etc. It is easy to say that you will burn tires off of someone else's car and not your own. I used to do it all the time. Go ripping around in a 1000 hp supercharged Viper and then get in my car and doddle down to get a gallon of milk.
What do you guys think? Seems like Jay Leno will likely be in the mix because he actually drives things. John Hendricks, perhaps not so much.
