BRENTWOOD, U.K. – The U.K. catches Ford GT fever with 500 potential owners signing up hoping to buy the £350,000 ($400,000) new supercar.

Ford says it has received 6,506 applications from people around the world in the 1-month window for a chance at owning the second generation of the EcoBoost-powered performance car. Retail deliveries are expected by year’s end.

But with just 500 vehicles in the first production wave of the car claiming the highest power-to-weight figures of any sports car, most will be disappointed after Ford reviews the applications before informing successful customers within the next 90 days.

The 3.5L twin-turbocharged engine produces 630 hp powering a carbon-fiber chassis with a curb weight of only 2,890 lbs. (1,310 kg).

“We’re excited by the amount of enthusiasm fans are showing for the new Ford GT,” says Dave Pericak, director-Global Ford Performance. “This initial application window is just one of many ways fans and potential owners will have to connect with our all-new supercar even before it hits the streets.”

Hundreds of applicants have submitted videos hoping to bolster their chances of purchasing one of the GTs. The reverse pitches have featured children, lighting effects, racing footage, revving engines, garage tours and life stories to show why they should own it.
