A special car requires special service, not every dealer will have the privilege of handling the upcoming $400,000 Ford GT. Those dealerships interested in servicing Ford’s supercar will need to invest in service center upgrades.
An exclusive Ford GT clean room must be built or converted from existing facilities. Only a certified Ford GT Master Technician and Ford GT sales representative are allowed inside. A special set of dollies must be purchased in order to move the car. The dollies will mount at specific points on the carbon fiber tub to balance the mid-engined car and prevent damage. Other items needed include a tire mount that can work with the carbon fiber wheels and a specific jack for the transaxle.
A car trailer must be used to transport GTs from their owners homes or offices. Transportation services will be available to any Ford GT owners for warranty repairs, although not all services or repairs can be performed at the dealership.
Basic services like an oil change can be handled at the dealer. As the levels escalate, so does the level of outside involvement. Multimatic, the company that’s assembling the new car, will send a “fly-in-doctor” when needed. If major repairs are required, Ford will ship the car back to Multimatic‘s facility in Ontario Canada.
Special tools and traveling technicians are nothing new to the supercar business. Like Ford, Bugatti will fly people out in order to properly service and handle its vehicles. Ford already vetted future GT owners. These buyers should expect a supercar level of service from the most expensive car Ford has ever built.
