The things you gotta do to get a Ford car these days. Not just any Ford, in fairness, but a €400,000 GT.

It seems you have to be 'passed fit' to buy and own one.

There is a tough application process; basically you have to be vetted and approved by Ford before you can custom-order one of the 500 GTs being built over the next two years.

You'd expect them to ask for your name, mailing address, email, work and mobile phone numbers. But then they ask how you're involved with the carmaker and its motorsports activities. Each answer leads to more questions. By all accounts there are lots of questions.

If you negotiate them successfully you will be contacted by a Ford GT Concierge Service, which guides you through your ordering process.

The concierge will work with the approved Ford dealership you choose to complete the purchase and delivery.
